In determining whether a genuine issue of the material fact whether a genuine issue of material fact occurs regarding the reasonableness of the requested accommodation, we first examine whether Turners facial presenting that her proposed accommodation is possible. If appellant has made out a prima facie showing, the load then shifts to prove a favorable defense, that the accommodations requested by Turner are unreasonable or would cause an undue hardship on the employer. In contrast, If Turner has satisfied her initial burden, Turners proposed accommodation seems practical. At this time, Hershey rotations policy is new one which had never been required of employees in Turners position. If Turner's proposed accommodation would permit the new rotation program to endure, even though on a modified basis. Under Turners proposed accommodation, each inspector could continue to rotate on the hourly basis, with Turners, herself, rotating only between line 8 and 9. Hershey has not put up with that because this is not practical or
Coca–Cola a leading manufacturer, distributor and marketer of soft drink products. Coca–Cola was not always the sugary syrup soft drink most people know today. As a matter of fact, before 1886 Coca-Cola was made with alcohol and cocaine. Concocted by Dr. John Pemberton a pharmacist in Atlanta Georgia Coca-Cola was originally named Pemberton’s French Wine Coca. Dr. Pemberton marketed the drink as a cure all for mental and physical disorders and was sold from a soda fountain at his local drug store. A step ahead of prohibition, Dr. Pemberton replace the wine in his formula with a sugary syrup. The cocaine portion of Coca-Cola was removed before 1914 when cocaine was deemed illegal in the United States of America. Coca-Cola as we know today still contains coca but the narcotic portion of cocaine, it is removed. Today, Coca-Cola has expanded to over 200+ countries. From concerts to sport venues to local restaurants you are more than likely to come across a Coca-Cola product, Coca-Cola has had such an impact on society that it is given credit for how we portray Santa Clause today. Other credits should also be given to Coca-Cola like an increase in diabetes and other diseases.
While becoming employed for an international company may seem like a great adventure, this may not always be the case. Two major ethical issues I would like to focus on are human rights and environmental impact.
* The charges against Williams included that she lied to investigators, tyrannical behavior, especially in running her drug court. Williams had imposed indefinite jail terms on drug defendants, deprived some of contact with their lawyers and jailed one man 14 days for questioning a positive drug test. The commission also accused Williams of giving favorable treatment to family members of friends and those of high social standing. She was also accused of nepotism for allowing family members to practice before her. In one case, Williams warned parties they would be subject to contempt should they fail to pay a $1000 fee to her daughter within 30 days. Other charges include ordering that a
Verdict: Guilty.” (Press, 2004) • False statements: “Stewart, among other things, lied when she told the SEC, the FBI and prosecutors that she did not recall being told on Dec. 27, 2001, that the family of ImClone Systems founder Sam Waksal was selling stock. Verdict: Guilty. (Press, 2004)
This case was actually pretty interesting to me. I can’t help but wonder if the 5’7 height requirement was really the only reason that the airlines didn’t have any female pilots prior to this incident. I find that hard to believe so it makes me think that there is some validity to the plaintiff’s case. However as I read more into the matter the evidence indicated that the height requirement had more to do with being able to effectively operate the plane, yet it still had a disparate impact on women. I think back to the Hitchman Coal & Coke Co. v. Mitchell case we read about last week where the court decided that the employer is free to require its employees to stay out of the union in order to keep their jobs (Twomey, 2013). It makes me question
Kiko’s parents are likely not contractually obligated to give him the $20,000, but this is uncertain. For a contract to be legally enforceable, it must have mutual assent and consideration. The court determines whether there was mutual assent by asking whether an objective reasonable person would have recognized an offer

John D.R. Leonard v. PepsiCo, INC. 1. (a)What are the facts and (b) sources of law in this case? a. Defendant PepsiCo conducted a promotional campaign in Seattle, Washington from October 1995 to March 1996. The promotion, titled "Pepsi Stuff," attempted to persuade consumers into collecting numerous "Pepsi Points" in order to
The title says it all, “Pepsi to Replace Coke as NBA's Official Sponsor.” Pepsi has signed a new marketing deal with the national basketball association, also known as they NBA.

In addition to short-term snags, long-term problems consists of probable damage to Coke’s reputation. Given the company’s history in 1977, when it left India rather that reveal its formula to the government and reduce its equity stake as required under FERA, it is a intimidating task that is before this CEO. Another possible long-term issue could be if the allegations are false it might
1. Do you think Coca-Cola will surpass the scandals around the world like it did in the past?
“Have a Coke and a Smile” “A Coke is a Coke, and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same, and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it."(Andy Warhol, 1975) Regardless of its corporate reputation, the organizational performance and its social responsibility of Coca-Cola makes it loved around the world. Ever since its creation in 1886 Coca-Cola has been a household brand known globally for generations of families. I have to mention, of all the cases researched this is my least favorite not only because of my childhood love for the product because the ethical issues in one way or another always manage to resolve themselves not before further tainting the reputation Coke worked so hard to obtain. Most times, whether an organization is innocent of an unethical act, it becomes secondary to the suspicion of the original act. Almost as if the court of public opinion has the power to ruin the reputation of an organization based on an unfounded accusation. In spite of my loyalty after having ready the case, I do believe Coca-Cola to be flawed. The contamination scare in Belgium is a great example of a public relations nightmare. The slightest hint of impurity should have pushed Coca Cola into crisis management mode but they were slow to react, citing it a minor issue (Ferrell, Fraedrich, & Ferrell, (2011). It was not until local officials
