The use of disposition codes help you document the reason why an applicant fell out of consideration for the position. They should help you justify your selection decision if you have to defend it. Employers need to be careful about using disposition codes that may disproportionately exclude certain individuals. You are much better off using strategic disposition codes that better identify why a candidate is not qualified, or why a candidate is less qualified than the individual you selected, such as “experience not directly related,” “experience not most recent,” or “not as qualified due to type of experience or type of employer.” Ellen Shong-Bergman has written an extensive two-part article on disposition codes in the May and June editions of The OFCCP Digest, where she offered many helpful and strategic disposition codes that employers can use in a variety of situations. Similar questions on disposition codes have been answered in this forum before and I would encourage you to read those answers as well.
