Business Ethics: Chapter 7 1. What is discrimination? Discrimination in business refers to the unequal treatment of many racial, ethnic and religious groups, as well as women, in such matters as hiring, compensation and promotion. Discrimination is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex. In other words, discrimination is the recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another. 2. Type of discrimination: A. Discrimination on the basis of sex – Sex discrimination under Title VII is defined as discrimination based on whether a person is male or female. Sex or gender discrimination is treating individuals differently in their employment specifically because an individual is a woman or a man. For example, you apply for a job for which you have experience and excellent qualifications, but you are not hired because the company's long-time clients are more comfortable dealing with men.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
