CFPB gets painful lesson in "disparate impact"
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau just got a painful lesson in the "disparate impact" theory of discrimination. American Banker magazine reported on March 6 that the CFPB's employee performance-review process is plagued by exactly the kind of disparate-impact statistics that the agency uses to prove discrimination in the industries it regulates. For example, according to confidential CFPB data obtained by the magazine, 20.7% of the agency's white employees received the highest performance rating compared with 10.5% of African-American employees and 9.1% of Hispanic employees. The reviews are taken into account for pay raises and bonuses.
