Question No. 1

Elaine, a friend of yours, is a 49-year-old Asian female Accountant at Taxes R Us, a 200-employee firm, and has been working for the company for 8 years.  She has repeatedly been passed over for promotion to a higher-paid Senior Account position despite the fact that she has received excellent performance evaluations and is considered a reliable, conscientious employee.  The only thing she can think of that might be preventing her from advancing is a personality test she took when she was first hired, but she doesn’t know the results of the test nor what it had to do with the job.  During her tenure at the company, a number of younger white men and women have been promoted to Senior Accountant positions and Elaine is beginning to think she may be subject to some sort of discrimination.  She knows you’re taking a course in Human Resources and asks you whether or not you think she is being discriminated against and if so what she should do.  Name and describe the type of discrimination might Elaine be experiencing and the factors that you considered when forming your opinion.  If she decided to file suit, what should be her first step?  What actions might the employer take to defend itself against the discrimination charge and to what extent would those actions be effective? 


 

Question No. 2

Janice, your neighbor, is a new sales associate at Blue Ridge Realty, a real estate company with 300 employees headquartered in Atlanta.  She noticed that several of the male salespeople seem to be overly friendly with some of the female associates.  In fact, several weeks ago another sales associate, Ed, approached her asking for a date.  She told him she doesn’t believe in dating people from the office and said she wasn’t interested.  He didn’t seem to get the message, though, and continued to ask her out every other day.  Yesterday he came into her office and closed the door saying, “You really should go out with me.  Why don’t you just say yes.  I could make it VERY worth your while.  And if you don’t, well…let’s just say I typically get what I want if you catch my drift.”  He then rubbed her shoulder and said, “C’mon.  Say yes.”  She told him to take his hands off her, that she wasn’t interested, and told him to leave her office.  Now she is really uncomfortable and is trying to decide what to do.  Ed has been with the company a long time, has a lot of friends, and there is no human resource person she can go to.  She has come to you for advice.  Does Janice’s situation constitute sexual harassment?  If so, what kind?  Would it qualify as a prima facie case?  Why or why not?  What do you think the outcome might be if Janice did file a lawsuit?  What could the organization do prevent these types of situations in the future?
