EMPLOYMENT LAW ISSUES 2
Employment Law Issues
Question Set One
Lourde's contact raises the legal issue of nationality discrimination in the workplace.
Nationality Discrimination in the workplace arises when an individual discriminates the other
because of the individual's national origin. Lourde suspects Vladimir for the disappearance of
coffee pods because of his heavy Russian accent. As the office manager, Lourde does not
treat Vladimir equal to the other employee's nationality. There is also the issue of rights to
privacy. Increased reliance on technology in the workplace has contributed to increasing
controversies regarding employees' right to privacy. Lourde goes through Vladimir's drawer
and personal files as well as emails even after failing to get any coffee pods. She goes and
copy some of Vladimir's personal files from the computer and sends a copy to a journalist
friend to find more about Vladimir.
The applicable law is that of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibits
discrimination of an individual in the workplace based on the individual's nationality (Brown,
2014). The law applies to the situation by highlighting Lourde's acts as discriminatory
towards Vladimir. Vladimir has to show that Lourde shows acts of discrimination in her
actions. There is also the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 that highlights the
laws regarding employment with its statement that discrimination or employees because of
their citizenship or immigration status is unlawful. The law works because of Vladimir's
Russian accent that depicts that he immigrated to the country at some point. His accent
resulted in Lourde suspecting him for the disappearance of the coffee pods.
The other useful information is that from the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission (EEOC) that is responsible for enforcing federal laws that illegalize the
discrimination of an employee because of the person's nationality, race, religion, color or
