Labor and Employment Discrimination At A Glance

Capabilities and Services

Our Labor and Employment experts regularly provide statistical analysis of employment discrimination claims at the class certification stage and in subsequent phases of the litigation. Our experience extends to all types of employment practices -- compensation, performance rating, promotion, hiring, and termination -- as well as to evaluations of protected groups. We have built our reputation using sophisticated statistical analyses that accurately model the challenged decision process. Our clients also appreciate our ability to explain our results in clear and convincing terms.

NERA economists and statisticians have analyzed large class claims of discrimination, as well as pattern and practice claims for smaller groups of plaintiffs. We frequently provide expert testimony related to discrimination and wrongful termination. Given our reputation for independence and defensibility, our clients return to us for calculations of economic loss and damages where those are needed. In such cases, NERA experts provide realistic and rigorous estimates based on the facts relevant to the particular plaintiff and defendant.
