Case Answer Format and Tips The minimum page length for your submission is four pages for the analysis and management tips combined, and the submission may not exceed six pages. A oneinch margin on all sides is to be used, and double spacing should be used for all lines except where block quotes dictate otherwise per APA. I don't grade on volume, but I do grade on thoroughness. Examining a case from the plaintiff's perspective and then from the defendant's perspective can demonstrate your understanding of the issues and how the law applies based on assumptions from each side. I am not seeking and do not want a recount of the case presented. I am looking for you to demonstrate your understanding of the legal concepts by applying them to the information provided. Assumptions must be made due to the limited information given, but you should state your assumptions in the analysis. Using outside cases is a great way to bolster your analysis and must be done for each case being analyzed. By researching similar cases and incorporating them into your analysis, you provide substantial support for your arguments. When including outside cases, you need to provide a brief overview of the case as well as the ruling and tie it back to the case you are analyzing. If you have a harassment case, you should locate a couple of similar cases and report information from them. You would then state that based on those cases, you can conclude that this case would most likely result in a similar ruling and tell what that might be. You must use the actual cases and not articles written about cases. Westlaw in the University's online library databases is a great source for federal cases. For management tips, I'm look for you to provide a narrative of how you would deal with the issue presented and prevent similar issues in the future. You can use outside sources for advice on dealing with similar issues. Citing published sources gives credibility to your recommendations and is a requirement. This is not about your opinion but is about applying facts learned through your research. Postings to discussion board questions and lesson cases should use the following format and thoroughness: Analysis - present the legal arguments related to the question. This should be very thorough. Make sure to include the analysis elements listed below as well as citations for the legal concepts used. Management tips - provide management with advice on how to correct the current situation and/or how to prevent such a situation in the future. Well developed recommendations with specificity should be provided. References - at least two per answer other than your book. Wikipedia and my class notes are not acceptable references. Please refer to the APA Manual for assistance. A link to APA information may be found under Learning Resources. Please clearly label each section. Analysis Elements Is the organization private or public? If private employment, at will applies...unless there is an implied contact such as a policy, a company handbook, written agreement or verbal agreement (must provide witnesses/proof that it existed); if public then due process applies and the person has the right to appeal the decision What law or laws might apply (e.g., Civil Rights Act of 1866, ADA, FMLA, Torts, etc., -- in some cases more than one law will apply) Is there a minimum number of employees required by the law(s)? For Civil Rights Act it is least 15 employees for private employers Does a statute of limitations apply for this law or laws? For the Civil Rights act it is 180 days What type of discrimination is taking place? Intentional/Disparate treatment, mixed motive, or adverse impact-What is the evidence to support it? If evidence for more than one, which would be best to file under? Explain in detail using the burdens of proof analysis. What questions or information do you need to know to decide the case one way or another? Legal Concepts to Consider DISPARATE TREATMENT Prima facie case Legitimate reason/Bona Fide Occupational Qualification (BFOQ) for action/same actor defense/slap in the face qualifications defense; Pretext/bias comments/unequal treatment(Similarly situated; by same decision makerif not may not count); lying; pretext plus; significantly better qualifications; timing of adverse action DISPARATE IMPACT Adverse impact calculated by job; isolate practice Firm shows business necessity, job relatedness or manifest relationship A less discriminatory alternative does exist Mixed Motive Discriminatory motives played role in the decision however minor Employer must show would have made the same decision anyway absence the discriminatory element Charging party must them refute the evidence and show pretext; this may be shown by circumstantial evidence ...

Susan and Ajax Corporation.
Ajax Corporation is a private company founded in the year nineteen fifty-eight and has
over fifty employees. Susan's actions to run an investigation against her employer in the first
instance does not seem to be offensive or in violation of any rules and policies of the company
she is working for. This is on the assumption that she is conducting the investigation without any
malicious intentions to ruin the reputation of the company and also that she is concerned about
the safety of the consumers of the product that is being developed and the environment. Susan,
therefore, appears as a whistleblower attempting to stop a wrongful activity. Now that the
development of a dangerous product qualifies to be an unlawful activity, Susan is right to
investigate so that before she finally raises the alarm about the product, she has all the facts right.
In this case, therefore, Susan's activity is one of the protected activities under the Federal law
which covers employees who report unlawful activities and those who take part in conducting
investigations on the actions of their employers (Maitland, 1989). Therefore, the decision by
Ajax Corporation to fire Susan is unlawful since this amounts to retaliation against her for
investigating the product being developed. Even though the employment is by at will, it is illegal
