Evaluating Title VII Exposure in a Manufacturing Setting: A Case Study for Human Resource Management Students
Since Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 became an established part of the employment legal framework, human resource management professionals and compliance officers have played a vital role in evaluating their companies’ vulnerability to litigation based on perceived violations of Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the American with Disabilities Act, and other associated equality protection legislation. Factors to be considered include the plaintiff’s burden of proof, legitimate business defenses, and collection and evaluation of reliable data. This case study calls upon human resource management graduate students to evaluate the potential exposure of a defense manufacturer to gender discrimination litigation, and has been presented in an online learning environment.
