A Study of the Federal Communications Commission's Equal Employment Opportunity Regulation--An Agency in Search of a Standard.
Bowie, Nolan A.; Whitehead, John W.
This study examines the performance of the Federal Courts and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in monitoring the efforts of broadcasters to guarantee equal employment opportunity, focusing on the use of employment statistics as an indication of effective equal-employment practices. Sections of the study include: court decisions interpreting the FCC's use of employment statistics in renewal proceedings; the FCC's practice in dealing with employment-discrimination allegations before and after the court decisions; Federal Court standards for use of statistics in cases under the 1964 Civil Rights Act; a proposal for use of statistics by the FCC in court cases on employment discrimination; and conclusions of the study that urge more action by the FCC to insure equal employment opportunity in the broadcast industry. Data collected and analyzed in this study appear in appendixes to the text. (RL)
