Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Age Discrimination in Employment Act
Disparate/adverse impact and disparate/adverse treatment
Need help with the following scenario:
Gelato Cheese Company, a major processor of cheese sold throughout the United States, employs one hundred workers at its principal processing plant. The plant is located in Heartland Corners, U.S.A., which has a population that is 50 percent white and 25 percent African American, with the balance Hispanic American, Asian American and others. Gelato requires a high school diploma as a condition of employment for its cleaning crew. Right now, Gelato's entire cleaning crew is white.
Need help integrating my responses to the following problems:
- In Heartland Corners, 75 % of the white population has completed high school, compared with 25% of those in minority groups. How is this information important in considering whether Gelato is in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964?
- In your educated opinion, should Gelato make any policy changes to ensure compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? If so, what changes should Gelato make, and why are they necessary?
Need help in my discussion on how Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act may or may not apply, and how the concepts of disparate treatment and adverse impact may or may not apply.
