MHR 6401 Test 3

1.

 

An employee approaches human resources with concerns that he/she is the victim of workplace bullying. In reviewing the situation, the human resource employee determines that there does not appear to be any Title VII discrimination evident. Even if the employee does not have a legitimate action under Title VII, are there any other claims that the employee could bring against the harasser and the company? What steps, if any, should the human resource employee take in order to deal with the bullying allegation?

Your response should be at least 150 words in length.

 

 

2. Demonstrate your understanding of these terms by using them correctly in a paragraph you create. Creativity is encouraged, but not required; a realistic scenario would be best. Do not simply provide a definition for the terms. Terms: harassment, severe, pervasive, vicarious liability, affirmative defense, and remedy.

Your response should be at least 150 words in length.

 

3. Read “Just The Facts” on p. 246 in your textbook. Review the scenario presented as it relates to the case of Taxman v. Board of Education. Although the school was concerned about diversity and took steps to ensure diversity in the business department, were the steps necessary since the amount of African American faculty in the school district exceeded the African American population in the community at large? In providing your opinion, make sure to also indicate what you think the court should decide in this case. Next, look up the case. What did the court decide, and why? Do you agree with the court’s decision?

Your response should be at least 150 words in length. You must use at least your textbook to complete this assignment. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. All references and citations used must be in APA style.

 

4. Are all employers required to implement affirmative action plans? If not all, which category of employers must implement a plan? If an employer subject to an affirmative action plan engages in discriminatory action, what types of sanctions can be levied upon the employer?

Your response should be at least 150 words in length.
