How to Spot Hidden Discrimination in Recruiting

Recorded: September 2022


Most employers strive for a recruitment process that is free of discrimination, both for legal purposes and because it’s the right thing to do. But it’s not always easy to identify.

There are obvious forms of discrimination in recruitment, such as requiring a specific gender when there is no bona fide business reason to do so. However, there are also hidden areas of discrimination in recruitment that employers, including federal contractors, need to look to eliminate or avoid in their hiring process. These are common, but subtle in recruiting, and it’s important that you mitigate the risks they may cause to your company by identifying them and purging them from your recruitment processes.

Join Berkshire experts, Kristen Johnson and Shanae' Brooks, on Wednesday, September 21st at 2pm, as we will explore these hidden areas of discrimination and discuss ways to identify and transform your approach to make sure you are providing equal employment opportunities to applicants seeking employment at your company.

Attendees can expect to learn about:

• What is discrimination and disparate impact as it relates to recruitment

• How to identify potential disparate impact in the various stages of the recruitment process

• How to remove the potential for discrimination from your hiring practices

• And more!
