The Value of Fair Treatment in the Workplace
You have been hired as a management consultant by a large company to examine the company’s business decisions regarding employee protections. The applicable laws are federal anti-discrimination laws, federal health and safety laws, and employer firing practices related to the employment-at-will (EAW) doctrine.
In response to the three questions below, write a 4–6 page paper in which you do the following:
Analyze, identify, and explain recent legislation, within the last 10 years, that helps to protect employees from discrimination in the workplace. Provide at least two federal legislative protections (Be sure the legislation is just that – passed law).
Provide some insight when the federal legislation conflicts with the state. (ie. what is the Supremacy Clause?)
Explain the EAW doctrine and all exceptions to the doctrine. (hint: There are more than three).Then, look at the scenarios below and determine whether the decision to fire the employee is a smart one. Identify why or why not, and determine all the possible exceptions per the EAW doctrine that are, might be, or could be applicable if the employee sues for wrongful termination.
