‘Disparate Impact’ Comes Back to Haunt CFPB Staff Evaluations

Lender representatives privately enjoyed a bit of disparate impact schadenfreude last week when accounts surfaced in the news media that the CFPB’s own internal employee evaluations demonstrated sharp racial disparities. Citing confidential agency data it obtained, American Banker reported that the bureau’s own managers have shown distinctly different patterns in how they rate employees of different races, with white employees ranking distinctly better than minorities in performance reviews used to grant raises and bonuses. Overall, whites were twice as likely to receive the agency’s top grade last year than were African-American or Hispanic employees, the newspaper said.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.
2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.
Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.
Not in my lifetime.
