that the asserted ‘business necessity’ is vital to the business”, as opposed to a “mere expediency.” The department could not prove that they needed the examination for business necessity and Wright could have sued for improper termination. 4. What are some practical implications of this decision for employers dealing with “problem” employees? In the case of Wright V. Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, the employer should use random drug testing on all employees because they be around children. The employer could negotiate that the employees take a stress class to help them deal with work stress. 5. Do you agree with the court’s decision? Why or why not? I agree with the court’s decision. They could not prove that MS. Wright needed evaluating. So they could not force her to undergo a fitness-for –duty evaluation. Just because they did not like her attitude was not a reason for the evaluation. Wright could not prove that the Department was firing her. She decided to retire instead of letting the discharge process run its course. Case Bauer v. Lynch 1. What was the legal issue in this case? What did the appeals court decide? Bauer brought suit against the FBI, alleging that the PFT’s sex-based cutoffs scores constituted Title VII discrimination. The Plaintiff alleged that the FBI discriminated against him on the basis of sex, in that female New Agent Trainees were required to complete only fourteen push-ups.

    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.
