Assignment 2: Discrimination in Employment
There are numerous ways discrimination can occur in the workplace. Choose one type of discrimination covered by the US EEOC as listed below:

- Cite at least two court cases that involve this type of discrimination in employment. Analyze the cases to determine whether and where illegal behavior occurred.
