M3_A1 Breach in Ethics Cynthia Moore January 19, 2018 Fabricut, Inc. is a large decorative fabric distributor in Oklahoma. In 2011, R. Jones had been working as an interim memo clerk at Fabricut. Once her 90 day assignment was completed, she applied for the permanent position. Fabricut made her an offer and sent her to their contracted physician for drug testing and a medical examination. At her physical, she was given paperwork including extensive questions about her medical history, as well as an in-depth questionnaire regarding her family’s medical background. After completing the exam, Fabricut, upon the advice of their physician, indicated that she should see her doctor to conduct testing for possible early Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Her family doctor did additional testing and determined she did not have CTS (EEOC, 2013). Ms. Jones provided her physician’s findings to Fabricut, and they later rescinded their employment offer based on possible CTS. She made written requests for reconsideration, attaching the physician’s testing and results, but was ignored. She later sued with the EEOC for discrimination based on disability and genetic information discrimination (2013). The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) was enforced in 2009 and was violated by Fabricut when they asked for her detailed family medical history. This was reinforced by the fact that they had already made her an employment offer.

    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.
