US Supreme Court Ruling - Higher Education and Affirmative Action

06/29/2023 4:11 PM | Maggie Garry

The US Supreme Court ruled to end affirmative action in higher education admissions practices.  Two cases were brought to the Supreme Court alleging racial discrimination in the admissions process.  The Court ruled that the higher education institutions in the cases were thought to violate the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.  

The ruling does not directly impact employers at this time but is rather something to watch for that could impact hiring practices.
