I'm Thinking the Law Firm in This Article Can Expect a Visit from the EEOC Pretty Soon

...because its requirement that everyone who works there have a college degree is going to have a disparate impact of some type on protected groups.  I referenced this in an earlier post about the EEOC's attacks on requiring high school diplomas for employment and the disparate impact that has on people with disabilities. I assume the exact same logic applies to the even more onerous requirement of a college degree.

If this employer can't provide a definitive link between a college degree and the job requirements for answering a telephone or filing, then I think the firm's going to have some explaining to do.  Stay tuned.
