Question : Women, minorities, persons with disabilities, older Americans, people with family
Women, minorities, persons with disabilities, older Americans, people with family medical emergencies, Civil Rights Acts, Equal Pay, Vocational Rehabilitation Act, Polygraph Protection Act of 1988—yikes! Who's not "protected" under the law? Although protection of certain classes is positive, what are some of the issues that cause trouble for managers when it comes to hiring, firing, promotions, and transfers?
You're from Washington, and will be completing an audit of hiring practices at a franchise retail operation with 50+ employees. Which particular issues would you most likely want to review? Explain which applications of existing laws protecting "classes" would you recommend be changed.
