A Primer on Job-Relatedness and Reasonable Alternatives
Eric Dunleavy and Emilee Tison, DCI Consulting

This workshop will provide a contemporary discussion of how different validation efforts are evaluated within the EEO context, with a focus on issues of job relatedness and reasonable alternatives. The session will begin by evaluating regulatory and professional guidance related to validation efforts – to review the current state of the field. During this discussion, we will review a variety of validation strategies and discuss both best practices and common criticisms. A review of current court cases and EEO enforcement will provide context for a discussion of current practices and highlights the topic of job-relatedness. Next, the presenters will review the topic of reasonable alternatives. This will include a consideration of definition, context and the identification of strategies for considering alternatives and their persuasiveness. Recent case law will also be reviewed, concluding with an evaluation framework designed to ensure a systematic review of these topics.
