Focus on Forensics ─ The Economist’s role in change-of-workforce discrimination cases

Posted by Johnny Lee on June 16, 2011

From Grant Thornton: “Companies involved in either reductions or expansions in force should be prepared for scrutiny over whether the composition of affected employees or job applicants is driven by business-related factors and whether there is evidence of an adverse impact on protected class members. In The role of economists in reduction (or expansion) in force discrimination cases we discuss how economists can assist a company’s legal counsel in validating or invalidating a plaintiff’s claim that the selection process has had an adverse impact on employees in a protected class.

This timely thought leadership comes from Grant Thornton’s Focus on Forensics series, a newsletter providing valuable forensic insights into some of the most complex and critical challenges facing businesses and legal counsel today.  Click here for prior online editions of this newsletter or to subscribe to upcoming editions, and click here for more information about a Grant Thornton Forensic & Litigation Services professional near you.
