POTENTIAL DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE Identify and describe the specific issues Maalick encountered in the workplace. Do the actions of other workers at Treton represent discrimination and harassment? What elements of law are important for Treton to consider? According to the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, "religious discrimination involves treating a person (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs." The Commission also defines two forms of religious discrimination at the world place; "requiring workers o either change or abandon their religious beliefs or practices as a condition of employment and secondly, unwelcome and pervasive behaviors and comments in reference to an employee's religion that creates a difficult and hostile working environment. Given this definition, it is clear Maalick has been religiously and racially abused. The other employees at the company have religiously discriminated and harassed Maalick by putting notes, dolls, and other materials meant to taunt and humiliate him because of being a member of the Church of International Spirituality. What makes the workers' actions and behavior towards Maalick amount to religious discrimination is that it has been severe, widespread and have persisted for months. In order to resolve this problem, Treton must reconsider the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination which outlaws discrimination against employees on the basis of race, religion, gender, national origin sex or color. Evaluate the actions of the HR director, Marta Ford, in response to Maalick's situation. What could she have done to prevent the situation and what more could she do to ensure that this type of situation would not occur in the future?

    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.
