Employers should review their hiring processes and results as well as trends to make sure they line up with what’s expected based on the local labor pool for the job or jobs in question, Peter J. Gillespie said.

Indeed, federal employment rights watchdog the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, in agency guidance, has warned employers of the risks of job discrimination at the various stages of the hiring process, including in job advertisements, recruitment materials and methods, job applications, and background checks.
