Consulting Services: Employee Selection and Validation Research
Employment selection tools like tests, interviews, and resume screens can offer substantial value to employers by increasing the likelihood that the right applicants are selected. When a selection tool has adverse impact against a protected group, that toolmust be validated to be legally defensible.
Validation research can be a critical component to understanding the legal defensibility of employment decision making related to hiring, promotion, termination, and pay. In addition to legal considerations, validation research also inform on the quality of those decision making systems. For example, are organizational hiring processes increasing the likelihood that selected candidates can perform the job more successfully than candidates that are rejected? Validation research can help inform on how confident organizations are that their selection decisions are good ones. For this reason it is a best practice for organizations to proactively validate their selection systems regardless of EEO context. DCI has substantial expertise and experience in developing and validating selection systems in the EEO context.

Michael Aamodt, Principal Consultant at DCI Consulting Group, wrote an article featured in SIOP’s TIP publication, January 2017.
DCI has just learned that OFCCP began to send out audit scheduling letters on March 17th. At this time we are not certain how many were sent out, but we do know that 800 CSALs (Corporate Scheduling Announcement Letters) were sent to contractor establishments last month. It is critical that corporate compliance representatives notify individual establishments in their organization to be on the look-out for any official OFCCP correspondence. If you did receive a scheduling notice, please notify DCI immediately so that we can assist you with the audit process.
