Week 10 Discussion

  • Jackie Patch, a Hispanic female, applied for a sales position in Ames Department Stores in Seattle. After completing her application, she was asked to take a math test and a general aptitude test. As a result of her score, she was disqualified from consideration for the sales position.  Based on this scenario, argue whether or not you believe that this testing policy is a violation of Title VII.   Explain when an employer can use an Aptitude and/or other tests and how tests are validated. 
  • What are the two forms of sexual harassment discrimination and provide an example of each.  If your boss liked to hug employees in the morning for a job well done, is that sexual harassment?  Why or why not?
