Chapter I – Introduction Without a doubt ever since the terrorists attacks on U.S soil on September 11, 2001 Americans have been hyper-vigilant, and to a certain degree hyper-critical towards Muslims. It is one thing for an individual to project their prejudices onto a member of a different race, gender or religion, but when an employer takes part in these unlawful practices they become subject to the Federal laws that our great nation has put in place to ensure fair and equitable treatment to all. Such is the case in regards to the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) vs. Swift Aviation Group et al (2012), as discussed in the following pages.
Chapter II – Background In October 2007, Adam Domnez (a Palestinian Muslim) began working in Line Services for Swift Aviation Group, which operates a small fleet of jets and a private terminal at the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix. While employed at Swift Aviation, Mr. Domnez was allegedly subjected to hostile work environment based on his national origin. These allegations are in violation of Section 703 (a) of Tile VII, 42 U.S.C. §§2000e-2(a). (Cornell…...

...Running Head: EEOC Sues Extended Stay Hotels for Pay Discrimination Based on Sex Equal Employment Opportunity Commission EEOC Sues Extended Stay Hotels for Pay Discrimination Based on Sex Blair Morse Sociology/315 July 15, 2013 Professor Ms. Anne Tindall EEOC Sues Extended Stay Hotels for Pay Discrimination Based on Sex Abstract In the paper it will discuss why EEOC Sues Extended Stay Hotels for Pay Discrimination Based on Sex. The paper will include the following: A description of the compliance issue that led to the lawsuit and its ramifications for the organization, a brief summary of the functions of the EEOC in one paragraph, the EEOC’s role in this lawsuit, whether or not this lawsuit promotes social change; justify your reasoning, a comparison of the EEOC press release to the news item. What accounts for the differences, and strategies you would implement, if you were a senior manager of this company, to ensure future compliance and inclusion in the multicultural workplace. The lawsuit that I have chosen is about a company paying lower wages because of their gender. According to the EEOC, female guest services representatives at Extended Stay Hotels received lower salaries than male guest services representatives, which, if true, is a violation of the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Equal Pay Act requires that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work. The jobs...

Individual vs Group

...Running head: THE INDIVIDUAL VERSUS GROUP ETHICS The Individual Versus Group Ethics in Today’s Unethical Society Abstract This paper explores The Parable of the Sadhu by Bowen H. McCoy. It is a breakdown of events and how the circumstances of the event helped contribute to the actions of those involved. It will also take a look at how things could have been different if the conditions were different. For example, how having a leader could have changed the way they dealt with the Sadhu and how if people did not have the mind set of not wanting to be responsible for strangers. Another condition that may have played a role in their decisions is their language: in America something could mean one thing but in another part of the world, it could mean another. This paper reflects the events written by McCoy on his Nepal hike in regards to how ethics and morals played a part in the decision they made on the trip. Keywords: ethics, morals, responsibility, actions The Individual Versus Group Ethics in Today’s Unethical Society Being a climber takes skill, endurance, and years of training. Just after daybreak, the hikers became in contact with a Sadhu (a holy man). After reaching 15,500 feet the hikers were tired, stressed, determined, agitated, high adrenaline flow, and some were even experiences altitude sickness. The group of New Zealanders found the Sadhu, came back to the group and told others “Look I’ve done what I can. You have porters and Sherpa guides.......

Staff Model Hmo vs. Group Model Hmo

... LP2: Staff Model vs. Group Model HMOs HMOs provide several benefits to both physicians and patients alike; however, both Staff Model HMOs and Group Model HMOs offer different types of benefits for both. Group Model HMOs are centered around multi-specialty medical groups that focus on the performance of the group as a whole; they tend to be a bit less structured than the Staff Model HMOs. Many Group Model HMOs have ties to hospitals in the areas in which they practice, but are legally independent of those hospitals. New physicians to group practices must sign a Non-Compete Clause to prevent stealing of patients and often face an entry barrier due to the reverence given to senior members of the HMO. Staff Model HMOs are health systems that employ physicians directly; either through direct recruitment or the purchase of a pre-existing practice. Staff models are comprehensive health systems that include hospitals and several other correlated healthcare organizations. Healthcare is provided in HMO-owned facilities by HMO-employed physicians. There is a high degree of control over the care that is delivered; often stressing quality and efficiency. Physicians would be attracted to Group Model HMOs because of strength in numbers; the focus on the performance of the group as a whole creates unity among the members of the group. Individual physicians also have the ability to control their income based on their productivity. As a senior member of a group HMO, a physicians......

...The best case June Jones can bring forward against her former employer is one of gender bias. There is no mention of any harassment of a sexual nature, so under work place harassment she can file her grievance as gender bias. Clearly, she is frustrated with management over what she deems as favoritism towards those of the opposite. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as well as other federal act (including the Equal Pay Act of 1963), employers are forbidden from discriminating against employees on basis of gender (Jentz & Miller, 2012). The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for ensuring Title VII is enforced, victims of harassment must file a complaint with them first before proceeding with a legal actions against an employer. Military commanders don’t have jurisdiction over military spouses unless the transgression occurred on the military installation. The bank should refrain from contacting J.P. Jones’ commander because the only thing he/she can do is restrict the individual from having access to the installation. A commander’s authority over dependents and civilians is not as great as the “virtually absolute” authority over military members (Gittler, 2006). The Human Resource (HR) department has to show proof that policies and practices were in place to help prevent any form of harassment. Only if the employer can produce evidence of taking reasonable care to prohibit harassment does the employer have the possibility of......

...EEOC Elizabeth SOC/315 July 15, 2014 Dr. Todd Dannelly As long as America has existed, equality has always been an issue for the people and for some a success, fortunately we have the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, also known as EEOC. This organization is an important part of America’s workforce when it comes to protecting and helping employees who are being treated unequally or unfairly by the employer and it is the job of the EEOC to protect people not matter the color, race, age or the work environment. It is the responsibility of the EEOC to always provide a thorough investigation, education and knowledge towards complaints and violations of the law, an example of EEOC violation will be talked about in the paper which relates to the termination of a Nurse who was on approved medially leave and temporarily disabled to work. Compliance issue that led to the lawsuit and its ramifications for the organization and functions of the EEOC Nationwide healthcare provider Dialysis Clinic, Inc. (DCI) violated federal law by firing and refusing to re-hire a long-time nurse who needed more medical leave to complete her cancer treatment, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit it filed today. According to the EEOC's lawsuit, Francisca Lee had worked as a nurse at DCI's Sacramento Southgate location for 14 years when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Group vs. Individual Working

...Paper # 3 Groups When considering how to handle topics or problems, it is important to understand that there are different ways of reaching the end result and both must be evaluated equally. What are the benefits and shortfalls of working on it alone versus working on the situation with a group? After asking this question, it is important to take into consideration the time restrictions, the difficulty of the problem or issue, as well as the impacts of the result. Groups have both potential limitations as well as strengths. Objectives can vary drastically and those you are in a group with can quickly impact the group as a whole. To look at the potential limitations of a group, "there are two significant disadvantages of group discussions and it includes the time it takes for the group process as well as the potential of conformity pressures to interfere with high quality decision making." Operating in a solo manner can allow for thinking through ideas efficiently, where with a group each person is allowed to speak and others to respond. (page 235 Comm. 203 Wood) When you understand that each individual with get the opportunity to voice their thoughts, it is important to remember that some group members may have more to say than another individual. This may show that some group members are suppressing their thoughts or that the stronger opinions, may encourage conformity. This certainly would not be beneficial to the group and would not fall into the category of......

Group vs. Individual Decision Making

...The Group and Organizational Dynamics class helps a person step back and look at themselves and others. It allows a person to look at different task functions, group versus individual decision-making, motivational patterns and conflict. It helps a person step back and observe the content of certain situations and then attempt to see how the process of the content unfolds. When working with a group, a person is going to have to deal with conflict and how to use task functions to process that conflict within that group. As a leader or individual, you will have to insert different aspects of motivation to lead and maintain a group. This reflects what type of a leader that individual wants to be or how that individual can adapt to the group. This includes adapting to new additions within the class and understanding our own personal work dynamics. Group vs. Individual Decision Making When trying to get a task completed there are positive and negatives when deciding to do a task as a group or as an individual. In a group, there is more than one person that works together to complete a task. A group will have different opinions and personalities that will form different decisions to complete the task. There are benefits to working as a group because everyone in the group and not just one individual makes the final decisions. A group must have a leader. If there is not a leader, there is no clear direction and the task will take longer to complete. As an individual, the......

...EEOC Presentation Throughout the United States brief history there has been a large amount of discrimination in the workplace and no laws to protect employees from such harassment. Title VII was passed which prohibits discrimination in hiring, firing, training, promotion, discipline etc. on the basis of an employee or applicant’s color, gender, race, national origin or religion. If any employee feels they have been a victim of employment discrimination they may a file a charge or claim with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC will handle all claims by following a common procedure and following all rules and regulations. Ganley Lincoln of Bedford, Inc., an auto dealership in Bedford, Ohio, will pay $300,000 to four African-Americans to settle a racial harassment lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the agency announced today “Racial harassment is utterly unacceptable and illegal,” said EEOC Regional Attorney Debra Lawrence. “It demeans the entire workplace as well as the direct victims. This settlement – both the monetary relief and the training -- will help ensure that African-Americans at this company will never have to face such abuse again.”  The EEOC will take is to make sure all nonfederal government employee claims are filed within 180 days of the event where the discrimination occurred and federal employee claims are filed within 30 days of the event.

(Graves 2013) states that it is difficult understanding human emotions effect on the buying decision process yet because we humans have very similar neural wiring we tend to make similar mistakes what he calls ‘mind gap’.

Functional vs. Dysfunctional Conflict in a Work Group

...Functional Vs. Dysfunctional Conflict in a Work Group There are several factors that are important in creating an effective and efficient work team. Some, such as diversity, knowledge, and skill are obvious. However, the most important factor in building a strong team is conflict. Most individuals have a negative view of conflict. While there are negative aspects of conflict, it can also draw team members together and create an atmosphere conducive to a creative and thorough problem solving environment. In today’s business world it is extraordinarily important for individuals to work within teams well. Each team member must be able to consider differing opinions and adapt their ideas to make the decisions that benefit the whole team. There are two main types of conflict to consider when working in teams: functional conflict and dysfunctional conflict. Functional conflict allows for creative ideas and strong team performance. As stated before, many people have a negative view of conflict but it is the very diversity of opinions and ideas within a group that is the most important factor in good decision making. It is these differing opinions that will create alternative solutions, which best utilizes scarce resources. Multiple ideas allow for healthy debate and problem solving. Debate allows everyone with a differing view to state their case and describe why their solution is better, and allows the team to make decisions with more potential solutions. An increased number of...

Team vs. Groups

...terms team and group can sometimes mean the same thing according to individuals; however, there is a difference between the two especially in an organizational setting. In this paper, the topic for discussion will analyze the differences between a group versus a team, examine workplace diversity, and how it relates to team dynamics. Leadership in organizations generally stress the important factors of teams and team building, not referring to a group for example. A team’s weaknesses and strengths depend on the interconnectivity from the individuals in the team as opposed to a group where their strengths generally come from a leader and their willingness to carry out commands. Organizations believe that is can be much simpler to form a group versus a team. Individuals can be grouped together according to experience, gender, age, etc. The interpersonal dynamic of a group can differ between compatibility to intolerance which in turn can be difficult for a single leader. A team can be difficult to form because they may be formed according to skill level and the compatibility of their skills as opposed to a commonality. Each individual has a specific importance, function, and purpose within the team so their success is driven by the individual’s interpersonal dynamic with one another. When working in a team-based environment, it is difficult when conflict arises because it could potentially affect the performance of the team as a whole. In order for a group to find......
