For instance, there was a complaint where MCA was accused in (what kind of hiring process?) hiring process. Indeed, the complaint argued that there was bias against African Americans, who were less familiar with the use of the Internet for getting information quickly (cite).

The plaintiff who in this case is the MCA agreed that the personality measures were scored using predominantly white norms; as a result, black candidates were adversely treated (cite).

After the evidence provided by the I-O psychologist, the EEOC came to conclusion that there was racial discrimination that favored Americans and kept Africans away (cite) Hiring an I/O Consultant As a consultant, I would highly recommend for fairness and validity in this hiring process.

Hi Daniel~ You did well as addressing the element(s)/obstacle(s) in the case study. However, missing was clarity as to specific steps to help with fairness and validity (i.e, information/guidelines are public, staffing models, methods, assessments and, types of validity). Also, missing was addressing this section in the rubric; Clearly connects theories (i.e., adverse treatment & adverse impact) from the course to decision making and planning as related to the case and the questions presented in the assignment. And, more detail for the section in the grading rubric regarding I/O psychology terms was needed. For example, defining the terms discussed and adding more terms. Missing was a conclusion. Your paper met the page length requirement. Missing was use of the course digital book and other sources as well as citing the reference listed, thus lacking in APA format. It’s vital to cite your work to ensure it’s supported in a scholarly manner. I recommend rechecking your work and using grammar and spell check. Additionally, there were several grammatical and punctuation errors. Also, there were some errors with sentence structure and sentence transition. AN EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION SUIT 7 Your turnitin score was moderately high (25%). One thing that can contribute to the high % are use of direct quotes. Thus, it’s important to keep this % lower ☺ Best, Prof Dixon
