The United Nations defines the rights written very cautiously in the Declaration of Human Rights. They are defined cautiously to prevent any misinterpretation that may occur. Some people may argue that by defining the rights so cautiously that the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights doesn’t cover everything. For example article 23 talks about how everyone has a right to form and join trade unions for the protection of his or her interests.

There was once case in particularly where a male was sexually harassed at work and was awarded $1 million. It does not matter if the person being harassed is male or female; both genders are protected under the law. “ Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, but it was the mid-to late 1970s before courts began to seriously recognize sexual harassment as a form of gender discrimination.” (Bennett-Alexander, 2007) Employers have a responsibility to address sexual harassment or any other discriminatory acts in a timely manner or be held liable and face possible lawsuits.

Adequacy of Consideration Adequacy of consideration refers to the fairness of the bargain. Ordinarily, courts will not evaluate the adequacy of consideration, unless it is so grossly inadequate as to “shock the conscience” of the court—if, in terms of its amount or worth, it indicates fraud, duress, or undue influence. The con¬tract may be declared unconscionable.
