I’m working on a business law project and need an explanation to help me study.
Employment discrimination law is about prohibiting or encouraging behaviors in the workplace regarding differences in people. It has evolved over the years significantly, and the passage of Title VII, the U.S. Civil Rights Act, has made more changes to how the United States defines the right to work free from harassment and discrimination, than any other law, case, or regulation in the nation.
Write a six- to eight-page, double-spaced mini-research memo (excluding title and reference pages) with your subject as Employment Discrimination Harassment Policies. You will also complete a PowerPoint Presentation to support your research memo.
Assume you work for a company that has a sexual anti-harassment policy, but not a religious, sexual orientation, or racial anti-harassment policy. Write a six-eight-page detailed memo to your boss (the HR Director) as to why you believe it would make sense to revamp the company policies to include these and or other forms of harassment. Include one example of a real situation where a policy may have protected a company from liability or stopped harassment from happening. (You can find case examples on the EEOC website (Links to an external site.).) Cite that case/situation in your memo to your boss.
