Workforce Review/ OFCCP Audits/ Reductions in Force

NERA's workforce reviews help to minimize employment law risk in several ways. With our detailed statistical analysis of workforce composition, NERA experts can:

  • Assess the impact of proposed reductions in force (RIFs).
  • Determine whether statistical disparities exist in salaries, incentive compensation, or other elements of compensation such as stock options.
  • Review promotional patterns to assure no glass ceilings exist.
  • Review hiring data to see if screening tests or other mechanisms show an adverse impact.
  • Evaluate existing affirmative action programs.
  • Diagnose where changes can be considered to reduce future risk from a lawsuit or government audit.

When developing a statistical workforce review, NERA draws extensively on the company's HR fact base. We use rigorous statistical tools and proprietary techniques to analyze and compare across company operations, age categories, job positions, salary ranges, and other dimensions with litigation risk.

Employers who engage NERA to perform a workforce review know they have a statistically rigorous, comprehensive, and accurate picture of their HR activities. They can be confident that they have the information necessary to reduce their exposure to misuse of employment law, and have the facts on their side.
