A male employee saw an opportunity to be promoted at his workplace Fairview County Public Library. There are currently 516 employees, including 163 librarians at Fairview Library. Recently the male employee applied to be a supervisor; however, most of the positions are currently held by female and minority employees. Fairview County Public Library conducted a study of the library staff. The study revealed men make up 25% of the branch librarians. The library needs to implement an affirmative action plan that would consider gender as one component of the decision when promoting librarians. Analysis The male employee decided to apply for the supervisor position at the library because he felt he was qualified and had worked there for numerous of years.

Three out of thirty supervisors in the library branch are male. So to think the male employee had a chance of being promoted was slightly small. The library would need to implement an affirmative action plan to prevent future claims or lawsuits by their employees The plan would consider gender as one component; however, affirmative action is not primarily just one component. The plan should reflect gender, race, and ethnic profile. The male employees should know, “an applicant does not necessarily have to be a minority or a female to be placed in a job”
