On June 29, 2009, the United States Supreme Court ruled that white firefighters in New Haven, Connecticut, were subjected to race discrimination when the city threw out a promotional examination on which white firefighters had done well and black firefighters poorly. The complex 5-to-4 ruling, which reversed an appeals court decision is likely to have a significant impact on the legal landscape and could dramatically affect what employers must do to protect themselves from charges of employment discrimination.
Dr. Dan Biddle, CEO of Biddle Consulting Group, was in attendance during the oral arguments that were presented before the Supreme Court. You are invited to join Dr. Biddle for an informative free webinar that deconstructs the Ricci case and offers insight into what it means to employers.
This webinar is offered through the BCG Institute for Workforce Development (BCGi). As always, this BCGi webinar is free and no product or services will be marketed during the presentation. If you have friends of colleagues who may share an interest in this topic, feel free to pass this webinar invitation to them.
