Legal considerations when credentialing programs are interpreted as employment tests

Track: Business of Certification

Session Number: 4042
Date: Thu, Oct 26th, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Description:

This session discusses the potential impact of legal rulings on credentialing examination programs. Decisions about the Gulino v. NYC Board of Education case suggest that credentialing exams can be interpreted as employment tests, and that compliance with professional standards may be insufficient to defend some challenges. Presenters will discuss the implications of these rulings for credentialing programs, including adverse impact, the court’s concerns, validity evidence that programs could prioritize, and risk management strategies.

Session Type: Concurrent Session
