I am law firm administrator and certified human resources professional, John Jakovenko at Sparks Law (https://sparkslawpractice.com/). My focus is on employment law compliance and human resources fundamentals. With the recent HBO Max documentary release of “Persona: The Dark Truth Behind Personality Tests” many are discovering how corporate America hires and fires employees based on these test results. These tests are being used to discriminate against individuals who may have depression or other disabilities. They are used to screen applicants, determine who is ‘hireable,’ and decide who gets a job interview.
Here is my proof (https://www.facebook.com/SparksLawPractice/photos/a.1119279624821116/3846336035448781/), a recent article from NBCNews.com (https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/job-hiring-increasingly-relies-personality-tests-they-can-bar-people-ncna1259466) about how job hiring relies on personality tests but discriminates against those with depression and disabilities, and an overview on employment law (https://sparkslawpractice.com/georgia-employment-lawyer/).
Disclaimer: The purpose of this Ask Me Anything is to discuss employment law relating to hiring and firing of employees based on personality tests. My responses should not be taken as legal advice.
Mr. Jakovenko will be available today, April 14, 2021 from 12:00PM - 1:00PM EST to answer questions.
