THEN… Think about this: Discriminatory bias in hiring and selection has been a significant concern among employers, civil rights advocates, and the legal system, for at least the past 50 years. While it doesn’t get much attention in the readings, the Duke Power case was a landmark US Supreme Court decision that led to a number of policy changes that impact employee selection processes today, both in terms of hiring and promotions.The background: In 1964, Congress passed and President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act.  Under Title VII (title 7) of the Civil Rights Act, discrimination in employment was prohibited, based on race, color, gender, religion, gender and national origin.
