EEOC Legal Opinion

Does The Birkman Method® Satisfy EEOC and ADA Requirements?

Here's a legal opinion...

"The general concept... of the Birkman is consistent with the principles of EEOC. Moreover, there are several aspects of the Birkman which may be helpful in the defense of discrimination cases."

"Proper use of the Birkman may avoid significant aspects of 'disparate impact' because the reports avoid cut-off scores and 'ideal' profiles."

"Potential gain... in terms of defending employment discrimination lawsuits... is due to the emphasis Birkman places on the acceptability of individual differences and different management styles."
