The review of Chern’s Flagship Store and analyzing its full-time sales associates hiring data for evidence of adverse impact, “a substantially different rate of selection in employment decisions that adversely affects a protected group, protected groups under title VII of Civil Right Act include race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age discrimination, and the American with Disabilities Act (Phillips, Gulley, 2015). This evaluation described by, Section 4D of the Uniform Guidelines states that “a selection rate for any race, sex, or ethnic group which is less than 4/5ths (or 80%) of the rate for the group with the highest rate will generally be regarded by the
In today’s world, the American still has barriers to overcome in the matter of racial equality. Whether it is being passed over for a promotion at the job or being underpaid, some people have to deal with unfair practice that would prevent someone of color or the opposite sex from having equal opportunity at the job. In 2004, Dukes vs. Wal-Mart Stores Incorporation was a civil rights class-action suite that ruled in favor of the women who worked and did not received promotions, pay and certain job assignments. This proves that some corporations ignore the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which protects workers from discrimination based on sex, race, religion or national origin.
Going against the Supreme Court, which is the supreme law of the land, in the Worcester vs Georgia case demonstrates how Andrew Jackson abused his power as president. John Marshall, the chief justice at the time, ruled that the United States did not have possession or legal jurisdiction over Native American land, and no individual states had authority in Native American affairs. However, Jackson went above this, since the court did not order marshals to enforce it. In the Indian Removal packet, it was stated that in May 1830, Jackson signed the Indian removal act to exchange land with Native Americans. To do this, he coerced tribe leaders, sometimes by getting them drunk or high, into signing away their land through removal treaties. In the

It is somewhat surprising that employers continue to violate employment laws dealing with discrimination. One case, Catterson v. Marymount Manhattan College, litigated and settled in 2013, was especially egregious. According to the EEOC (2013), the college had refused,
B. The decision-maker reconciled the legal principles involved by observing that courts has held employers liable for harassment by supervisors especially when the harassment is done by those in charge of hiring, firing, and promoting. The decision was also reach by the decision makers who considered the interactions of past sexual harassment cases, referring to its guidance in Meritor Savings Bank, FSB v. Vinson, 106 S.Ct. 2399
In the case of Franks v. Bowman Transp. Co., 424 U.S. 747 the court reversed the judgment and because of the Civil Rights Act 1964 which prohibited the discrimination based on race, therefore, equitable relief to achieve its purposes, including the ability to award seniority retroactively. Due to the title 7 and Civil Rights Act of 64 which prohibits hiring discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, or national origin as well as in the case of Alexander v.

Mr. Dunlap successfully established a prima facie case of disparate treatment by meeting the above 3 provisions; (1) he was African-American; (2) he was qualified for the position sought; and (3) white applicants with less experience were hired for 9 of the 10 open jobs. TVA attempted to rebut his claim by offering the selection matrix used during his interview as evidence to prove that he didn’t rank as one of the top 10 applicants due to his interview scores. However, Mr. Dunlap was able to refute TVA’s claim by demonstrating that his matrix score was manipulated to keep him out of top 10, thus proving it was merely a
The first Supreme Court case that I listened to was one brought forth in front of the Warren Court in 1965. The case of Griswold v. Connecticut is a very significant case regarding contraceptive use, counsel and advice with married couples. The case later played a great reference in the Constitutional rights for abortion. The Griswold v. Connecticut case went in front of the Supreme Court in March and was passed a few months later in June by a vote of 7-2 in favor of Griswold.
Even If This Court Was To Find That Ms. Brie’s Authority to Consent Was Ambiguous, This Court Must Still Find that the District Court Properly Denied the Defendant-Appellant’s Motion.
Administering test to promote internal employees is a change needed to the Tanglewood organizations promotion procedure. These measures would also need to be administered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex and disability (Heneman, Judge, & Kammeyer-Mueller, 2006, p. 356). Another measure on the test would be an evaluation of associates job performance and rating of their preferences for job rewards (Heneman, Judge, & Kammeyer-Mueller, 2006, p.
Along with this ruling, the Supreme Court appealed this case. It was believed that the plaintiffs in the case needed more proof. The court wanted the plaintiff to show more reasoning why that individual was denied a job based on race, creed, color, or other factors. The Supreme Court also wanted the employer to show the reasoning behind the testing or the requirements of the job. As a result, the case moved closer to disparate treatment. However, in these types of emotional cases proving the case can be tedious.
The case study about the solution for adverse impact is about a federal government agency that had to deal with complaints from job applicants regarding its selection procedure. The specialists in the agency did not pay attention to the discrimination of minorities and gender applicants in previous recruitment process. Bob Santos who is a specialist in the staffing division of the agency knew it was time to evaluate the staffing process, after attending a seminar on the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures. Bob Santos and a team of specialists decided to use the four fifths rule to assess the
