Professor X has a different assignment, it is a complete different one. So make sure you post even if he does too. Thanks! 🙂
Assignment: Investigation Plan
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects against employment discrimination based on Race and National Origin. Anu is a woman of Bangladeshi ancestry who wears a sari. She is offered a position at XYZ Bakery after a phone interview. When she reports for the first day of work, she is told by the manager who interviewed her that the bakery has found someone “better suited” for the position. Anu files an EEOC charge alleging discrimination based on national origin. She believes that the bakery’s manager changed his mind about hiring her after meeting her in person and seeing that she is South Asian.
You are an investigator for the EEOC, and this case has been assigned to you. For this assignment, you will draft an investigation plan.
- Briefly explain Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and identify the provisions that would apply to Anu’s case.
- Name three individuals you want to speak with and explain why they are of interest.
- Explain what questions you want to ask each person.
- Explain what documents you will request for review.
Your investigation plan should demonstrate an understanding of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Conduct any additional research necessary to demonstrate this understanding.
This paper should be approximately 750-1000 words in length, exclusive of the title page and table of authorities.
