by Sandra Zeigler, Esq. - May, 2013
In presentations I have made around the country, I have occasionally raised the question of whether the practice of permitting negotiation of starting salaries is susceptible to challenge under a disparate impact theory. This article explores that question further. Disparate impact occurs when a practice that is fair in form -- because it applies equally to all employees or applicants -- has a disproportionally negative...

by Debra Milstein Gardner - May, 2013
Is OFCCP, only now under the Obama administration, valuing the full scope of E.O. 11246?

by Georgia Adamson - May, 2013
Few people can do a zillion things at once, and even fewer can do them well. Career success and the actions that achieve it are just one example of that fact. You might consider yourself a super-multitasker, but I’m betting you don’t do it as well as you think.
