Selection and Testing
Employer selection and testing practices raise a wide variety
of issues, both legal and practical. When developing selection and testing
procedures, employers should consider federal and state laws governing fair
employment practices, disabilities, reasonable accommodations, and civil rights.
Selection and testing practices should accurately identify qualified, successful
candidates from a pool of applicants. In order to do this, employers should
conduct a needs assessment, identify the types of testing methods that most
closely fit their needs, and carefully comply with the various laws regarding
administration of testing and recordkeeping.
