Award Amount:

While it is illegal for firms to discriminate against applicants or employees because they are members of a protected class it has been shown that these protected characteristics influence employers’ treatment of job applicants. Economists Patrick Kline, Christopher Walters, and Evan Rose will examine public perception of employment discrimination and how perception varies amongst different groups. They will conduct a survey with 3,000 respondents for their study.
