An Inclusive Litany

6/8/98

The Food and Drug Administration's Equal Employment Opportunity Handbook states: "The common requirement for 'knowledge of the rules of grammar' and 'ability to spell accurately' in secretarial job descriptions," should be eliminated because it may impede the hiring of "underrepresented groups." Also, job interviews that "judge highly subjective traits such as motivation, ambition, maturity, personality and neatness" should be eliminated.
