What is disparate impact?

You probably understand what discrimination means, but disparate impact is a term that fewer people in California have heard. Disparate impact is a type of unintentional discrimination against a particular group of people, and it is illegal for a company to do it.

Discrimination during the hiring process

Employees may recognize discrimination when it occurs on the job, or when a position is terminated because of someone's religious beliefs, for example. With this being said, it is essential for people to keep in mind that discrimination occurs in other ways as well. In fact, discrimination can target someone who may not even work for a particular company and create a number of challenges for them, both financial and psychological. For example, a job applicant may be discriminated against because of their gender, sexual orientation, faith, disability or some other factor which is against the law.
