With companies implementing record-setting layoffs and furloughs following the outbreak of COVID-19, outside counsel are turning to analytics technology to help clients better manage their restructurings. Indeed, more employment lawyers are leveraging adverse impact analysis software to limit client liability and meet demand for efficiencies.

“Certainly software is quicker than crunching the numbers manually, and it also provides a clear illustration for the client to be able to see which groups or group may have a higher or lower selection rate than others,” said Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart shareholder Danielle Vanderzanden, whose practice includes discrimination and labor and employment litigation.
