Law

The year is 2025 and the U.S. Supreme Court has declared all laws prohibiting discrimination in the workplace to be unconstitutional.  In its opinion, however, the Supreme Court made clear that employers could voluntarily adopt policies and procedures prohibiting any and all forms of discrimination in the workplace. The Supreme Court also made clear that employers could voluntarily adopt hiring practices to diversify their workforces provided such practices did not include express preferences based upon immutable characteristics.

You have been hired as a consultant by a large, nationwide retailer to examine the business case for ensuring that all of the employee protections are found within the federal anti-discrimination laws, as well as the business case for prohibiting any other forms of discrimination in the workplace.

Write a four to six (4-6) page report in which you:

  1. Analyze the benefits and costs of voluntarily prohibiting three to five (3-5) federal forms of discrimination prohibited under the federal anti-discrimination laws.
  2. Discuss the benefits and costs of voluntarily prohibiting a form of discrimination not covered by any of the federal anti-discrimination laws.
  3. State the benefits and costs of voluntarily adopting hiring and promotion practices designed to diversify the workforce.
  4. Evaluate the ethical considerations of not voluntarily prohibiting the forms of discrimination laws examined in the first part of your report. Next, determine the ethical considerations of not voluntarily adopting hiring and promotion practices to diversify the workforce.
  5. Provide a final recommendation to this retailer on whether or not they should ensure all, part, or none of the employee protections examined in the first part of your report. Your recommendation should also include whether or not the retailer should adopt hiring and promotion practices designed to diversify the workplace. Be sure to include a rationale for your recommendation along with an explanation for any rejections of contrary positions or other pertinent considerations.
  6. Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment.  Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not quality as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

As you put together your paper this week, pay close attention to the following guidelines. Allow yourself time to create multiple drafts of your work so you can craft a paper that best represents your understanding of course material and your ability to articulate it.

Select one theme discussed in chapters 10 through 13 of our textbook.

Go to scholar.google.com and search for published articles on that theme.

Filter your results to show only those works published this year.

Select five articles that interest you the most and read them thoroughly. (You will most likely need to retrieve the articles from EBSCO host.)

In a well-written paper, provide the following:

A description of the theme as our textbook discusses it.

What the articles you have selected say about the theme. Where do they agree? Where do they disagree?

Now that you have reviewed at least six sources on this theme (our textbook and the five articles), what is your perspective?

Papers must adhere to the following guidelines PRIOR to submission on or before the last day of Week 6:

The first page of your paper will be a cover sheet correctly formatted according to APA guidelines.

This paper will use 1-inch margins, Times New Roman 12-point font, and double spacing.

The citations for each article MUST be correctly formatted according to APA guidelines. Do NOT use an automated citation manager to perform this function. Do it manually for this assignment and check your formatting against available APA resources.

Only COMPLETE paragraphs consisting of an introductory sentence, a full explanation of key points supported with properly cited sources, and a concluding sentence may be used.

Only use published articles from academic texts, such as those found at scholar.google.com or accessed through your Grantham University EBSCO host account.

The entire paper must be your original work. It may not include quotes, and at no time should text be copied and pasted.

This paper DOES require an introductory paragraph, explicit thesis statement, concluding paragraph, and references page.
