Case Summary: James Tilden is the HR Manager for SenGlas, Inc., a 50+ year company that currently has 7 management staff members and 300 employees. On Friday, Mary Booth, the shipping coordinator, came to Tilden to file a complaint against one of her co-workers, Bob Simonsky, for his harassing behavior toward her. Booth, a 5 year employee, accused Simonsky, a 20 year employee, of behaving in a threatening manner due to his negative feelings about working directly with women. Booth states that the harassment has caused her to have anxiety about coming to work which has caused her to have headaches everyday. Booth had enough of the harassment and had told her immediate supervisor before going to Tilden with the complaint.
Rock argues that she was a victim of a hostile work environment while working for Roberts. She claims that during her time working as an electrician, the men at work would take her equipment and torment her. When she confronted Roberts about the problems she was facing, she felt that she was being picked on and that the men were not only jealous of what she was capable of, but also discouraged by the fact that she was a woman performing a man’s job. Roberts asks Rock out to dinner in order to figure out what is going on, which potentially made Rock uncomfortable pushing her to the breaking point of quitting her job as an electrician. Personally, I would not consider this as an example of quid pro quo because Roberts did not impose any threats towards Rock if she declined the invitation.
Another issue within this community would be the harassment they receive on the job site which causes some to leave their job. “Seven percent to 41 percent of gay and transgender workers were verbally or physically abused or had their workplace vandalized.”(Burns et al, 2011) With these high numbers, it would leave most to believe that in many cases not enough is being done to make these sort of harassment doings unacceptable in the workplaces. Gay and transgender individuals make up a large part of the American work force, and make
In “The Crucible” the lies, deceit, and mistrust all came from Abigail Williams and the girls she had under her “rule” because of greedy wants and revenge on certain townsfolk. Lies and deceit captured the whole intent of “The Crucible”. Greed played into it as well which lead to mistrust which came from the lies and deceit. In the end no one got what they wanted. Many people felt down because of the decisions that were made in the moments but no one was sure who was really underneath the Devil and who saw what spirit and
As all this came to fruition, the bank was penalized with $185 million dollars in fines and other penalties by county and federal organizations (Blake, 2016). On top of getting slapped with millions of dollars worth of fines, Wells Fargo fired 5,300 employees that may have been involved in the scandal (Blake, 2016). Some of Wells Fargo’s top executives where asked to step down in court proceedings as well as in other meetings with federal agencies. There have also been several lawsuits filed against Wells Fargo by customers and former employees of the company that feel that they were wronged and bombarded with threats. Thankfully, this scandal did not affect most of Wells Fargo’s clients.
As more members left, the Ku Klux Klan lost their influence and the United States saw more people assimilating African Americans and other ethnic groups. Before the fall of the Ku Klux Klan many members who were tried for their wrong doings were acquitted of their crimes; after the conviction of David C. Stephenson, however, many of his peers followed his path to prison after being fairly tried in court. Due to the scandal they had lost most of their supporters, especially in high branches of government. As a result of this “Louisiana, Michigan, and Oklahoma passed anti-mask laws intended to frustrate Klan activity. Most of these laws made it a misdemeanor to wear a mask that concealed the identity of the wearer, excluding masks worn for holiday costumes or other legitimate uses.
Yes, Stanley is a victim of discrimination on his job witch is a very hard barrier to break. Sad to say, but A lot of people often get discriminate on there job. Stanley treated difference basic on his age; staff had no right to jokes about his age. At some point in our life time you may or have experience discrimination. In this case discrimination can be examined from many different angles.
The Klan 's increasing reputation for violence led the more prominent citizens, such as senators and mayors to drop out. criminals and the dispossessed looking for a new acceptance began to fill the ranks. Like many social movements local chapters proved difficult to monitor and direct the message. In disgust, of the lack of control many high ranking officers officially disbanded the organization and additionally the vast majority of local groups followed their lead. Some number of local units continued to operate but were eventually disbanded or sent into hiding by the influx of federal officers attempting to end their movement.
This problem was especially worse for immigrant workers as their belief in the so-called American dream has been worn down due to the misery they had to endure. Immigrant workers were limited of their freedom and constantly exploited due to the fact that they were working in hazardous working conditions, were living in deplorable conditions, and were being harassed under the intimidating power of corrupt politicians. Such miseries the immigrants had to face included the hazardous working conditions where they had to stay for long hours. There was no doubt that workers had either die or were injured as they worked in such environment. In Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, the dangers of working conditions are emphasized through Jurgis’ incident at the meatpacking plant.
Cheating is something that is viewed differently by each person. Typically it is viewed as dishonest, untrustworthy, even immoral. The world around us has put a spin on cheating. The world tends to let most cheaters slip by (for example, Tom Brady in the Superbowl "deflate-gate" scandal), while some cheaters (Lance Armstrong) are disgraced, never to be seen in their chosen field again. Even as the world 's viewpoint on cheating may be evolving, mine stays the same: cheating is always wrong.
The cost of the breach was far significant to Target, customers, employees and banks. Important employees lost their position including the CEO (Gonsalves, 2014) and CIO (Baldwin, 2014). Members of Target’s board of directors were threatened with termination (Lublin, 2014). Banks had to reimburse money taken from customers through their credit cards and pay for replacement cards estimating more than $200 million (D 'Innocenzio, 2014). Banks compensated most funds stolen from credit and debit cards, but identity theft was significant in the beginning of 2014 due to an enormous data breaches including Target (Murray, 2014).

Before the Sarbane-Oxley Act of 2002 came into effect in the American economy, most investors and shareholders were left in the dark – most often at the mercy of big corporations whose accounting practices were largely unregulated. The act was a response to the infamous scandal of Enron, WorldCom, Tyco, and Adelphia – all of whom had unethical business practices that caused their shareholders to lose the astronomical amount of investment when their scandals made headlines. The Sarbane-Oxley Act (SOX) requires a business to implement a code of ethics for its employees, especially senior financial officers; it also requires a business rotate its financial auditors on a regular basis. (Orin, 2008) The implementation of a code of ethics aims to
Donald Sterling was one of the owners the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers from 1981 to 2014, but the owner ship of the Los Angeles Clippers was taken from him after a conversation where he repeatedly used racist remarks was leaked to the media. Because of these racist remarks Donald Sterling is infamously know as one of the worst bosses in the sports industry.
