Discrimination & Harassment

Hiring & Testing

Outten & Golden strives to protect workers from unlawful hiring and testing practices. When employers base their hiring on tests and criteria that negatively impact a particular group of employees (such as women, people of color, or older workers), they violate federal and state anti-discrimination laws. Determining whether a particular test or hiring practice violates the law takes specialized knowledge and skill, and the attorneys at Outten & Golden are particularly well versed in this complicated area of the law. 

Anti-discrimination laws prohibit employers from creating barriers to employment that negatively impact protected applicants. Outten & Golden represents workers challenging unlawful testing against public as well as private employers to break down unfair barriers and allow the best candidates to be hired, regardless of sex, race, age, or disability.
