Selecting Legally Compliant Skills Tests
When using skills testing in the hiring process, employers must ensure employment assessment tests do not violate federal, state, or local laws and comply with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidelines. These laws and guidelines describe a legally compliant test as a valid and reliable measure of potential on-the-job performance. Simply put, employment assessment tests must evaluate the specific skills, aptitude, and knowledge required to complete the tasks and fulfill the responsibilities of a job. Agencies must carefully select tests that only evaluate the critical competencies of positions.
