Our I-O psychologists often provide employment litigation support and frequently serve as expert witnesses assisting both defendants’ and plaintiffs’ counsel in class-action employment discrimination, harassment and wage and hour law suits. We assist counsel by:
  • Examining whether statistical evidence supports the filing of class-action employment-discrimination lawsuits
  • Identifying relevant materials and information that need to be evaluated to determine whether employment discrimination has taken place
  • Reviewing relevant documentation to determine whether a test or other employment procedure (e.g., performance appraisal system) is valid and job-related according to legal and professional guidelines and standards
  • Drafting questions to be used by lawyers during depositions
  • Conducting job analysis to determine if jobs meet exemption criteria in wage-hour cases
  • Memorializing findings and conclusions regarding validity evidence in expert reports
  • Testifying in court about expert opinions and conclusions
