Disparate Impact 

No Company is Too Big to Play Fair.


Illegal discrimination can be unintentional. For example, a company might have policies that appear neutral on their face but have negative consequences for certain people. An employer might be hiring for a manual labor or public safety job and require all applicants to pass a physical agility test. That might seem fair on its face but, in practice, the testing requirement might negatively impact qualified female applicants. Similarly, in the housing context, a city nuisance ordinance that disincentivizes tenants from calling the police may unlawfully impact renters with disabilities or people in domestic abuse situations. This kind of discrimination is referred to as disparate impact discrimination.

If you believe that you have been negatively impacted by a policy or other seemingly neutral requirement, please contact our Civil Rights and Impact Litigation group. Our clerk is available at (877) 344-4628
