Statistics are an essential part of a comprehensive approach to protecting companies from legal challenges related to nondiscrimination and affirmative action compliance. When allegations of discrimination arise, we can review a company’s hiring, firing, and promotion of employees.
If a pattern emerges suggesting members of certain protected classes are properly represented in a company, the court may find discrimination has taken place. Statistical analysis is a powerful tool that looks beyond superficial surface patterns, taking into account other factors important to employers. However, few law firms offer employers the advantages of statistical analysis performed by an attorney.
Why Is Statistical Analysis So Important to Employment Law?
Employment law, especially discrimination law, is becoming increasingly dependent on statistical analysis. Even before you get into litigation, you can shape your actions to avoid it. You can take proactive steps to know where you may be vulnerable.
Fact-based detection of employers’ vulnerability to discrimination claims, wage and hour claims, or OSHA litigation is one of the most valuable outcomes of the statistical analysis that is part of the personalized legal service provided by a knowledgeable employment law attorney at the Sparlin Law Office, PLLC.
