Assignment 3: The Value of Fair Treatment in the Workplace
Due Week 10 and worth 280 points

The year is 2025 and the U.S. Supreme Court has declared all laws prohibiting discrimination in the workplace to be unconstitutional. In its opinion, however, the Supreme Court made clear that employers could voluntarily adopt policies and procedures prohibiting any and all forms of discrimination in the workplace. The Supreme Court also made clear that employers could voluntarily adopt hiring practices to diversify their workforces provided such practices did not include express preferences based upon immutable characteristics.

You have been hired as a consultant by a large, nationwide retailer to examine the business case for ensuring that all of the employee protections are found within the federal anti-discrimination laws, as well as the business case for prohibiting any other forms of discrimination in the workplace.

Write a four to six (4-6) page report in which you:

  1. Analyze the benefits and costs of voluntarily prohibiting three to five (3-5) federal forms of discrimination prohibited under the federal anti-discrimination laws.
  2. Discuss the benefits and costs of voluntarily prohibiting a form of discrimination not covered by any of the federal anti-discrimination laws.
  3. State the benefits and costs of voluntarily adopting hiring and promotion practices designed to diversify the workforce.
  4. Evaluate the ethical considerations of not voluntarily prohibiting the forms of discrimination laws examined in the first part of your report. Next, determine the ethical considerations of not voluntarily adopting hiring and promotion practices to diversify the workforce.
  5. Provide a final recommendation to this retailer on whether or not they should ensure all, part, or none of the employee protections examined in the first part of your report. Your recommendation should also include whether or not the retailer should adopt hiring and promotion practices designed to diversify the workplace. Be sure to include a rationale for your recommendation along with an explanation for any rejections of contrary positions or other pertinent considerations.
  6. Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not quality as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze and apply the concepts of ethical decision making, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.
  • Analyze and evaluate the employment-at-will doctrine and the statutory protections afforded employees.
  • Analyze and evaluate issues in modern contract law.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in law, ethics, and corporate governance.
  • Write clearly and concisely about law, ethics, and corporate governance using proper writing mechanics.

FAIR TREATMENT AT THE WORKPLACE

Discrimination can be described as the unfavorable treatment of other people based on
different, personal characteristics that they possess which makes them different but are protected
by the law. On this note, discrimination that happens in the workplace is as a result of another
worker maintaining a different character from what the person would prefer the person having,
therefore, using it as a basis for treating them differently from the rest so that they seem as if they
are below par. The United States Supreme Court passed a declaration on the unconstitutionality
of the laws protecting employees against discrimination while at the workplace, and it has,
instead, allowed for the coining or adoption of own policies working against workplace
discrimination for the employers, thus unique to every workplace. On this note, the Supreme
Court gave employers the freedom to have their hiring procedures adopted at their workplace
which would then act as an aid for workforce diversification while avoiding the use of
immutable characteristics on policies for governing the workplace (Cross & Miller, 2018).
Benefits resulting from voluntary prohibition of discrimination forms
1. Age discrimination
This is the type of discrimination practiced against employees who fall at the 40-year old
mark or more. An employer who can enable prohibition of this discrimination at the workplace is
