High court affirmative action case could have workplace implications
Diversity Executive
Although the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to render its ruling on the high-profile Fisher v. University of Texas before the justices' session expires at the end of June, the actual impact of their decision on employers' diversity initiatives appears far less distinct. There is a chance the ruling, regarding the case of a student denied admission to the university, will undercut the legality of affirmative action programs beyond the education realm. But because affirmative action isn't being directly challenged, both the outcome and significance are unclear. In fact, the ruling of this case could have no effect on affirmative action in the workplace at all.

American money: Workplace discrimination
BET
It's no secret that racial bias continues to impact the job market. Black unemployment is still double the national rate, and research has shown that, even when controlled for factors like education and experience, black job seekers still face hiring discrimination. For example, one study by the National Bureau of Economic Research showed that "black" sounding names resulted in fewer job callbacks.

Autism in the workplace: Companies seek out autistic workers to fuel innovation with neurological diversity
Reuters via New York Daily News
Some call it neurological diversity, others see it as autism's fight back. People diagnosed as "on the spectrum" are suddenly in demand by employers seeking a competitive advantage from autistic workers more used to being considered disabled than special.

FLSA suits hit record high
Human Resource Executive Online
A new record high was reached for federal wage-and-hour lawsuits filed under the Fair Labor Standards Act in the 2012-2013 year. The data, calculated recently by the Federal Judicial Center, confirms that suits filed under the Fair Labor Standards Act continue to climb, despite indications that these filings had moderated during the past 12 months.

Supreme Court cements ADA headache for HR
HR Morning
The Supreme Court made news last week when it did something seemingly inconsequential: It refused to hear an Americans with Disabilities Act case. But the repercussions for employers could be huge. The High Court opted not to review last fall's EEOC v. United Airlines, Inc. decision that came out of the Seventh Circuit. What it means for HR: Disabled workers may need to get preferential treatment for filling vacant positions at your firm — even if they're not the most qualified person in the running for the job.

Protect employees and yourself
Diversity Executive
Preventing discrimination is a universal goal within corporate America. Companies have spent millions on policies, training, complaint procedures and entire networks of human resources and operational employees whose job requires them to guard against discrimination and address any problems that arise. Many would assert that great inroads have been made to create a more diverse, less discriminatory workplace. But have all employees reaped the benefits of these efforts? The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission would say no.
