Case Study Complaints
Case Study 1
The police department of Mason, IL consists of 90 full-time officers varying in ages, from 21 to 59. The tenure of the officers also varies with some being newly hired and others with 10 or more years of service to the force. The city just instituted a pay-for-performance plan that states that police officers who have better performance will receive increased compensation after biyearly performance appraisals. A police officer’s job requires strong physical ability in most situations and the performance appraisal includes assessment of physical ability to perform the job.
To do otherwise and pit those with better agility or skills against with lesser amounts would be unfair and discriminatory. Under the Conditional Law, the rights of the individual are at stake, along with Private Laws governing small groups and Civil Law having jurisdiction in contract. This case is an act of discrimination, which is covered under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title V1.
Case Study 2
John felt that he was evicted by Maureen, his landlord, for being too old. When he spoke to her on the phone, she said that she might have difficulty "matching" him because of his age. In response to the allegations, Maureen claimed that the decision to ask John to leave was not based on his age but his incompatibility with other tenants, and undesirable character traits. For example, on visits she sometimes felt frightened for her own safety and that of the other female occupant. Maureen had offered John free rent while he looked for other accommodation, but he choose to move out immediately.
Since this case is based on discrimination and not about work related, but with the incompatibility with other tenants and undesirable character traits. Discrimination cases does not have to be about limited or be involved with employees of any companies, but rather they could include clients such as having a roommate. The victim in this case is entitled to damages that would include the loss of income, the emotional stress that was induce is this company and action and accusations is also their attorney’s charges. So the courts can give John double the sum of damages awarded, which is related to the Federal law. The state law can show John that he would be awarded as to the Federal law. Then the State law can show John could receive triple in damages. There is no doubt that the individual has been discriminated against anything that would receive damages. If the charges were based on his age this can be brought out and show the differential treatment to John. In many cases the direct proof is a statement such as “We would like to see someone more energetic or younger in this position.” But today in the workplace is a rare statement that would be made. And since John’s landlady said his age had nothing to do with her asking him to move, the charges of discrimination lies with the stress and emotional duress with John who did experience as he was informed that he was incompatible with others and he possessed undesirable character traits. In most instances there isn’t enough proof to show and therefore the courts would not use what is available evidence in front of him. As far as rent free goes, John wind up moving out as he quickly as he can, because he felt embarrassed, frustrated, and too stressed out by all the allegations that was being made against him. The Anti- Age Discrimination statue is to invoke the prevention of any violations. Liability comes when it has been determine that a form of unlawful treatment has indeed occurred and this...
