Write 1 page thesis on the topic employment, labor and anti-discrimination. Employment, Labor and Anti-Discrimination Employment, Labor and Anti-Discrimination Pursuant to the laws enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), one of the laws referred to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which states that “this law makes it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. The law also makes it illegal to retaliate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit” (U.S.Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, n.d., par. 1). Applying this law in the case of Sam who works as a driver for Toxic Games Warehouse, a wholesale distributor and online retailer of video games and accessories, he could in fact file a complaint with the EEOC for his employer’s repeated denial of promotions to the position of dispatcher for no valid reasons. As indicated,. Sam meets the requirements for the job, which are a years driving experience and a specific license. Therefore, it is obvious that the employer violates this law by discriminating against Sam and denying his promotions.
Likewise, by virtue of this law, when Sam files his complaint with the EEOC, his employer could not retaliate since there were no legal and valid grounds for refusing Sam to be promoted, as applied. Having worked for Toxic Games Warehouse for 10 consecutive years, in conjunction with the skills he possess which are needed for the next higher level position, should make Sam more than just qualified to be promoted to the next higher level.
