The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleged that JP Morgan Chase managers at a mortgage call center engaged in a pattern or practice of unlawful employment practices, including channeling more lucrative calls to certain male employees, and less lucrative calls to female employees. After the judge requested further expert discovery in the matter, Edgeworth Chief Executive Officer Dr. John H. Johnson was retained by JP Morgan Chase to provide a comprehensive econometric analysis of the available data to test the allegations made by the EEOC.
Dr. Johnson, working with Edgeworth Partners Chuck Fields and Mike Kheyfets, used the available data to demonstrate that the allegations made by the EEOC were belied by the data. Dr. Johnson further demonstrated that the opposing expert had ignored underlying correlation in the data and had therefore incorrectly performed his statistical analyses. The case ultimately settled.
