This case study of Vehar v. Cole National Group is a case where the plaintiff, Wendy Vehar, accused Cole National Group of sex discrimination claiming that as a female she was not being the same wage as a male for performing the same duties. Additionally this study will determine if the plaintiff established a valid prima facie as well as if there was a basis for equal work. Next, what factors did the appeals court base its decision and why is the other-than-sex factor that is presented by the employer insufficient to avoid a trial? Finally, what should the employer have done differently to ensure this type of situation did not occur in their business?

The plaintiff stated that she was rejected a job opportunity with Corizon after the employer contacted Dr. Ogunsanwo for further review before hire. In order to establish a case for retaliation under Title VII, “the plaintiff must show that: (1) she engaged in a statutorily protected activity: (2) she suffered materially adverse employment action; and (3) there is a causal connection between her participation in the protected activity and the adverse employment action.” There are many proven reasons why retaliation is contradictory to the facts of the case. Succeeding the termination of the plaintiff, the Department privatized majority of its health care through
White America will always have an advantage over blacks and it will continue to be this way, whether we would like to admit it or not. African Americans had the same capabilities to do anything a white American could, if not better in many circumstances. Unhappy with the hardships that challenged blacks’ freedom throughout their life, enslaved African American, Dred Scott, made a significant impact which eventually changed the views of slavery. Thus, the court ruling of the Dred Scott v. Sanford was established in 1857 which declared that slaves nor black men who were already free could be granted citizenship in the United States (Dred Scott v. Sandford, n.d.). Scott v Sanford court case was created to emphasize the wrongdoings of slave masters by expressing the poorly acts African Americans face while under the Declaration of Independence.
The most comparable case that is corroboration that the Sixth circuit test should control is U.S. v. Taylor. The Defendant’s female roommate consented to a search of the house for firearms while the Defendant was at the house. The officers did not ask the Defendant for his consent when the officers saw a shoe box in the closet covered with mens clothes. David Fallsbauer had a shoe box on a dresser which contained his clothes, as Taylor had his shoe box covered by his clothes. Because in both cases a female consented to a general search, the officers had no reason to believe that the shoe box was the property of either male defendant, Taylor or David Fallsbauer. In light of this ambiguity of the ownership of the shoe box, it was required that officers only search the shoe

Yes, the Tennants did settle, Nathaniel writes, "The tenant settled." He further states, "The firm would receive its contingency fee. The whole business might have ended right there.
