Step 1 Research

Closely review the discrimination laws in Chapter 30 of your textbook paying particular attention to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the gender discrimination discussion and do any additional research you believe necessary.

Step 2 Assume and Analyze these Facts

AB Pneumatics, Inc. manufactures hydraulic ram systems for motor vehicle lifts with 100 employees in a facility consisting of two buildings and a parking lot. The buildings are an older, small, administrative office and a large manufacturing plant. The older administrative building houses four male managers and six female clerical employees and contains separate bathrooms for male and female employees. The new manufacturing plant was built six months ago and has 80 male and 10 female employees working there. Plant employees receive two, ten minute work breaks and one 45 minute lunch break per shift. However, the new plant has only one bathroom for male employees only. Female plant employees on break are required to leave the plant facility and walk across an open parking lot to the older administrative building to use the female bathroom located there.

Step 3 Write a Legal Argument

Assume you are a junior attorney working for the EEOC. In a minimum 250-word (double spaced Word document) original paper, summarize the results of your analysis of the facts and law and give your reasoned opinion to your supervisor whether the EEOC should file a lawsuit for gender discrimination against the company and what remedies or relief the EEOC should seek. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE!

  • b. Developing

  • Student identifies problem to be considered critically, but description has some omissions or needs additional clarity. • Student gathers information that is mostly appropriate to develop a coherent analysis or synthesis. The viewpoints of experts are subject to questioning. • Student questions assumptions and identifies several relevant contexts (sides of an issue) when presenting a position. • Student considers opposing viewpoints when formulating a logical conclusion that is tied to appropriate information.
  • c. Proficient

  • Student states an issue or problem clearly and comprehensively, providing all relevant information for full understanding. • Student takes information from sources with enough interpretation/evaluation to develop a comprehensive analysis or synthesis.
