Business

Case: An employer has placed a job advertisement for the recruitment of security guard. The advertisement showed that the applicant must be the citizen of United States. The advertisement also required the applicant to present a social security card. Relevant provision: This is the case of employment discrimination. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act 1964, it is illegal to discriminate between employees on the basis of religion, race, color, sex, or national origin for those employers who are employing more than 15 employees. Conclusion: Hence, the advertisement given by the company is illegal. The discrimination for the recruitment of employees cannot be made on basis of nationality. In this case, the company is recruiting only the citizen of United States. Hence, the advertisement is not legal.

Case: An employer has placed a job advertisement for the recruitment of driver. One of the applicants was perfectly fit for the driver but he was convicted of murder 40 years before. Should the employer hire him? Relevant provision: This is the case of employment discrimination. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act 1964, it is illegal to discriminate between employees on the basis of religion, race, color, sex, or national origin for those employers who are employing more than 15 employees. Conclusion: Hence, the employer should not make any discrimination on basis of past conviction. The applicant has made the crime when he was minor. He has suffered from his punishment. Now, he is fit for work and the employer should not make discrimination on basis of his past records.

Employment Discrimination: Employee discrimination is a form of injustice based on gender, religion, race, physical ability, national origin, mental ability, and age by employment. Types of discrimination: The prohibited activities are classified by four types under Title VII: disparate impact, disparate impact, hostile environment, and retaliation. Title VII: Based on the "Title VII" of the "Civil Rights Act" 1964, the following activities are illegal for employers with 15 or added employees to discriminate by color, race, sex, religion, or national origin. Hence, option img "yes, Y violated Title VII by discriminating against E-H based on his national origin" is correct. Likewise, Option "b" is incorrect, because Y was not creating a hostile work environment. Hence, option "c" (both "a" and "b") is incorrect, because option b is wrong. Option "d" and "e" are wrong, because Y has violated Title VII by discriminating against E-H based on his national origin.
