Unit 7 Case Analysis
The Milwaukee County Juvenile Detention Center started a new policy that required each unit of thefacility to be staffed at all times by at least one officer of the same gender as the detainees housed at aunit. The purpose of the policy, administrators said, was to reduce the likelihood of sexual abuse of juveniles by offers of the other gender. Because there were many more male units in the center than female units, the policy had the effect of reducing the number of shifts for female officers and increasing the number of shifts for men. Two female officers sued for gender discrimination. The district court held for the county, finding that the policy of assignment was based on a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) and so it was not illegal gender discrimination. The female officers appealed. What would be evidence that the county had a valid BFOQ? [Henry v Milwaukee County, 539 F.3d 573 (7th Cir. 2008)]

Directions for Submitting Your Case Analysis:
Before you submit your case analysis, you should save your work on your computer in a location and with a name that you will remember. Make sure your activity is in the appropriate format (Word), then, when you are ready, you may submit on the Dropbox page.
APA manuscript style dictates how your paper should appear on the page. For more information on APA style, visit http://www.apastyle.org/faqs.html
There are two types of APA manuscripts: copy manuscripts (those submitted for publication) and final manuscripts (those not submitted for publication). Copy manuscripts are much more formal and may contain multiple sections. Specifically, they will have an abstract (a one-paragraph summary of the paper). The papers you produce for most Kaplan University classes will be final manuscripts. Unlike copy manuscripts, final manuscripts do not, unless specifically required by an instructor, require an abstract.
They do include:
A title page contains three items: a running head (a short version of the title), the paper's title, and the author's name. Traditionally, the author's affiliation (the university he or she attends or works for) appears below the author's name; however, many college instructors prefer students to put the course and section number in this place (since we all know which institution we are attending). The running title appears in the top right corner of every page, including the title page, right before the page number. The title, the author's name, and the author's affiliation (or course and section number) appear in the center of the title page.
Formatting the discussion, or body, of the paper, is also quite straightforward. APA final manuscripts are generally double-spaced (unless your instructor requests otherwise). As mentioned above, the running head appears in the top right corner of each page, right before the page number. The full title alsoappears, but only on the first page of the discussion. For subsequent pages, the running head is the only "title" present. New paragraphs should be indented (which is the default setting for the Tab key) and there should not be an extra blank line between paragraphs. The last thing required is the references page. This page, like the others, has the running head and page number in the upper-right hand corner. Sources should be alphabetized by the author's last name (or, for sources without authors, by the first letter in the title) and the second line of each source should be indented a half inch (the first line is not indented).
Here are a few additional formatting standards to keep in mind:
Use standard margins: 1" on all sides.
Use standard 12-point font size.
Use standard double-spacing: average of 22 lines per page, and between 20 and 24 lines per page.
Use left-aligned text. Do not right-justify.
There should be no subtitles or spaces between paragraphs within the paper.
When citing a quote of more than four lines, you should indent the entire quoted passage 10 spaces from the left margin. It is not necessary to indent these block quotes from the right margin. Continue with the usual double-spacing, and give the usual acknowledgements at the end of the quote. Block quotes do not require quotation marks.
