WorkSTEPS’ proprietary PAVE process validates testing with Subject Matter Experts and provides employers unmatched legal defense of their functional testing program.
With the EEOC and OFCCP’s increased scrutiny of disparate impact, it’s vitally important for employers with physically-demanding positions to have current, validated test criteria that reflect the true physical demands of the job. If you have physically-demanding positions that result in adverse impact of your functional testing program, consider using WorkSTEPS’ proprietary Physical Abilities Validity Evaluator (PAVE™) validation process.
PAVE™ is designed to validate and ensure legal defensibility of Physical Abilities Tests for a wide variety of jobs across a range of industries. When used in conjunction with Job Task Analysis & Job Descriptions, PAVE™ offers you an added layer of legal protection by validating each job classification against federal requirements set by the federal Uniform Guidelines of Employee Selection Procedures, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act.
PAVE™ helps streamline data collection during Job Analysis so we can more effectively and efficiently collaborate with you and your team to create the most accurate and compliant functional job descriptions, job classifications, and Physical Ability Tests.
WorkSTEPS is committed to helping customers mitigate liability risk. In conjunction with our Job Task Analysis process, PAVE™ ensures that all Physical Ability Tests meet or exceed federal Uniform Guidelines of Employee Selection, 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requirements. Our PAVE™ validation report offers you an unprecedented degree of legal defensibility you won’t see anywhere else on the market today.
