Assignment 3: The Value of Fair Treatment in the Workplace

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.
