1.    Julie is a 58 year old engineer of Asian decent.  She has mentioned to several co-workers that she may retire in December.  Julie is next in line for training which would prepare her for a promotion.  The training is scheduled for October.  Julie's supervisor, John over hears a group of employees discussing Julie's possible retirement and decides to schedule another employee for the training.  John approaches Jack, a 25 year old white male employee, and informs Jack that he will be attending the training.  John tells Jack that although Julie is next in line for the training and promotion, sending her to the training would be a waste of time because she is close to retirement and most employees have a difficult time understanding her English.  Julie learns that she will not be attending the training and she complains to her supervisor, who tells her he can select any employee he chooses.  Does Julie have any claims that she can assert against her employer?  If so, what are they?  What laws, if any would afford protection to Julie?
2.    John asks to attend a work related training conference in another state.  His travel is approved.  While at the conference, the hotel is evacuated due to a fire alarm.  While attempting to exit out of the hotel, John trips and falls, breaking his leg.  Is his injury compensable under the Workers' Compensation Act?  If his injury is compensable what facts and portions of the Workers' Compensation Act would lead you to this conclusion?  If his injury is not compensable what facts or portions of the Workers' Compensation Act would lead you to this conclusion?
