WEEK 10 DISCUSSION – “Anti-Discrimination in the Workplace” Please respond to the following:
- Flora Tucker, a Hispanic female, applied for a sales position in Ames Department Stores in Seattle. After completing her application, she was asked to take a math test and a general aptitude test. As a result of her score, she was disqualified from consideration for the sales position. Based on this scenario, argue whether or not you believe that this testing policy is a violation of Title VII. Explain when an employer can use an Aptitude and/or other tests and how tests are validated.
- What legislation, besides Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, in the Chapter reading regarding anti-discrimination protection is the most important and the most influential of the 21st Century and why?
- What are the two forms of sexual harassment discrimination and provide an example of each. If your boss liked to hug employees in the morning for a job well done, is that sexual harassment? Why or why not?
