Understand Why You May Want to Conduct Personality or Psychological Testing In Your Hiring Process, its Benefits, and Potential Legal Liability.

It's not always easy to know whether the candidate in your office is actually a good candidate and not just a good interviewee. If by calling his/her previous employers all you get are neutral references, then you're still short of finding the answer. In such a case, you may want more concrete evidence than just your instincts. A personality test or some other type of psychological test may seem like a good idea then. However, despite the benefits of such tests, you must consider the potential susceptibility to legal risks before implementing such a process.

In this session with expert speaker Susan Desmond you will learn all about the technicalities involved in personality testing in the workplace, the benefits and the risks involved, as well as tips to avoid them. You will know how to conduct a disparate impact analysis and will be given sample testing questions that trigger concern. Also, you will receive a checklist of things to consider in choosing a vendor for your personality/psychological tests.

Session Highlights

  • The reasons for you to consider personality or psychological testing as required in the hiring process;
  • When a personality/psychological test might be a medical examination;
  • Understanding the potential concerns under the Americans with Disabilities Act;
  • Understanding the concept of disparate impact and how it might make your testing process illegal;
  • Documenting the disparate impact analysis; and
  • Use of psychological testing for determining fitness for duty.
