“Discrimination” is a word commonly used without a definite and universal meaning. Within the employment context, however, discrimination is defined as “giving one group an unfair advantage over other members of other groups” (Cascio & Aguinis, 2019, p 18).

Even though a job position may have more applicants than is needed for the job and exclusion is implied, organizations must take care to know and avoid violating federal and state employment laws.

Imagine you are the HR director at ACME Financial Services. The CEO has advised you to only hire Asian males that appear to be between 35 and 50 years of age since many of ACME’s clientele seem to believe this population has great insight into financial matters. As the HR director, you know federal and state laws prohibit such practice.

Identify a specific section in Chapter 2 of your course textbook that assures everyone equal opportunity and how you would respond to the CEO using this section. Include in your discussion an example when exclusion fair employment practice does not violate federal and state fair employment laws.
