Abstract : This annotated bibliography consists of 232 court cases dealing with adverse impact, unequal opportunity or pay, and bias in personnel selection, classification and evaluation systems. In reviewing case law from January 1971 to 1980, the authors attempt to summarize only those cases that appear to have potential relevance for Air Force personnel programs or policies. Each annotation provides the case reference, case source, court decision, critical cases cited as a basis for the decision, evidence of adverse impact, evidence of job-relatedness or validity, type of selection procedure, factors impacting the decision, effects of expert testimony and implications for personnel policy.
