Webinar: Talent Reviews Are Now A Huge Legal Risk!


When? Thursday, March 28 at 2pm ET | 11am PT

Last month, a federal court ruled that decisions about employees by upper management exercising “unfettered discretion” may qualify for certification in Title VII class action suits. This decision is part of a growing body of case law that challenges traditional talent management practices (i.e., talent reviews, high-potential identification, and succession planning) turning them into a multi-million-dollar legal risk for many corporations. Last year alone, the EEOC filed 199 discrimination law suits and secured $505 million for discrimination victims through litigation and settlements.  

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The significance and implications of the Woods-Early v. Corning Inc. ruling for common talent management practices, such as talent reviews, high-potential nominations, and succession planning

  • How to determine if your current talent management practices result in disparate (adverse) impact against a protected group

  • How to minimize your legal risk by bringing in objective metrics into the talent management process
