However, Mrs. Miller has failed to prove that the fourth criterion to establish discrimination was met. This case supports my recommendation of litigation because the change to the schedule affected all production staff. Those who are not in Mrs. Miller’s protected class were not treated more favorably than Mrs. Miller. The schedule change required that all employees who had previously not worked weekends would now be required to work the rotating schedule. C2.
Toy Company | To: | CEO | From: | Stacy Kuhn | CC: | | Date: | 9/12/2011 | Re: | RJDT Task 1 | Task A:Task B:Task C 1:Task C 2:Task C 3: | Employee A is filing a claim against our company under constructive discharge as related to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The instigating factor of the case is the new work schedule policy that is mandated for all production staff. The associate believes their claim fits constructive discharge guidelines because the new policy requires him/her to work on a particular religious holiday, thus feeling that he/she is being discriminated against and that it was necessary for him/her to quit his/her position.Title VII deems it unlawful employment practice “to limit, segregate, or classify
For example, if you fire an employee for complaining that you denied a promotion because of race, you could lose a retaliation lawsuit even if a judge or jury finds that your promotion decision was not discriminatory. (Nolo, 2014). The at-will employee agreement dictates that the employer doesn't need a reason to keep an employee, but many justifiable reasons exist
In his claim Mr. Harris has stated we discriminated by implementing a work schedule and forcing him to work on a religious holiday. The basis of his claim is religious discrimination. This claim puts him under a member of the protected class. Our company is bound by CRA to accommodate the work schedule for his religious practice. In this case it did not happen as Mr. Harris only resigned and never brought to the company attention that a conflict existed between the change in work schedule and his religious

On August 18, 2004, the plaintiff moved to strike the defendant's answer based upon the defendant's failure to produce a representative. The defendant countered this claim by arguing that it made meticulous efforts to reaching Monforte by sending him letters to appear and to contact the company. In a final letter it even stated that if he failed to be in contact he would then be issued a subpoena. It was not until after this claim that the court was then informed that Montforte was no longer an employee of Robin’s Wood, Inc. Monforte was in fact subpoenaed to appear and did not, the following month, the Supreme Court granted the motion to strike the defendant's answer. This in evidently meant that the plaintiff would be granted a default judgment and would be granted what they were asking.
Barbara Perez Breach of Contract PA300: Real Estate Law Prof: James Roche March 3, 2015 To: Barbara Buyer Date: 3/2/2015 From: Barbara Perez, Paralegal Re: Action on terminated property sale at 123 Van Buren Street, North Bergen, NJ 07047 I am contacting you in regards to the issue indicated. There are quite a few ethical issues in your businesses with Mr. Sam Salesperson and Seller. For instance, Mr. Salesperson did not produce the appropriate contract concerning the earnest payment on the two occasions where he had promised to do so. He also did not practice impartially as a dual agent and appeared to be biased towards the seller. It was even more unethical not to disclose the agreement that had been in the works with the other
Meanwhile some food service workers are claiming $12.85 an hour is not enough to raise a family on or even live in Pittsburgh. Such as Christoria Hughes, a food service worker who has been working at UPMC for the last 6 years, she claims the $12.85 sounds good but on paper its under $350 a week. Mr. Peaslee said his employees are being paid fairly and are receiving great benefits with plenty of career opportunities. Referring to the tuition assistance plan, pension and 401(k) match. However as good as all of that sounds, once again do not judge a book by its’ cover.
Most importantly, during the September 2003 negotiations, the union failed to achieve having the Company remove the anti-nepotism policy or at a minimum allow for some exclusions concerning the policy. For example, employees who have contributed successfully to the company regardless of having relatives as employees should be exempt from being terminated. Second, the company’s nepotism policy had been enforced for many years and had the policy incorporated in the employee handbook since June 2003 and is quoted in the CBA. Also recorded in the Company’s argument is “…it has enforced the no-relative rule….with the less senior employee always being terminated where two relatives have been found to be working for the Company)”. Mr. Walton is the junior employee and is the person that was terminated.
