Two weeks ago the Eastern District of New York held that New York City violated Title VII (intentional pattern of discrimination) through the use of written examinations to screen and rank firefighter applicants. [Order ( http://case.lawmemo.com/ny/nyfd.pdf )]
Now the court has issued its remedial order, designed to remedy discrimination against black and Hispanic applicants.
The complex order affects about 7,400 minority applicants who took the tests, requires that 293 applicants be given priority hiring status and retroactive seniority, and provides for monetary and other relief.
