As part of a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the city of Dayton has revised its police entrance examination.
The DOJ and Dayton had settled a 2009 suit involving allegations that the city discriminated against black applicants who applied for jobs in both the police and fire departments. The revised scoring on the exam increases the number of passing applicants from 490 to 758.
The city has promised to begin hiring both police and firefighters to replace retirees in 2012.
Note: If you use employment tests, the onus is on you to ensure they do not inadvertently discriminate against minorities. If test results show a significant disparity between majority and minority candidates, review the test to determine if it is discriminatory.
