Appeals Court: Different Standards for FBI Fitness Test Is Not Discrimination

The FBI’s physical fitness test has different standards for men and women. Men, for example, must do more than twice the number of push-ups as women.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit dismissed a challenge to the test by a man who was turned down to become special agent because he could only do 29 of the required 30 push-ups, The Washington Post reports. 

Jay J. Bauer filed a discrimination suit, saying he was held to a different standard than women.

But the appeals court said that’s not necessarily a problem because the “physical fitness standards suitable for men may not always be suitable for women, and accommodations addressing physiological differences between the sexes are not necessarily unlawful.”

Women are required to perform 14 push-ups.
