After careful consideration, our team has identified the overarching problem Permalco faces as employee dissatisfaction due to engagement issues. Employee engagement expresses the extent to which employees bring energy and commitment into an organization. Research has proven that engaged workers tend to be more productive and loyal to their employers. Companies whose employees lack engagement are in danger of high turnover rates and low productivity. We have come to the conclusion that, based on the information provided, Permalco has a poor selection process and poor development process.

In addition to this, the ways in which the female sex worker is deemed as problematic is seen as related to intrinsic characteristics of her personality, or tied back to early trauma and past experiences. It is seen as impossible that a sex worker would fall into their occupation out of choice, and instead there is always some reasoning offered for how a person could fall so far down the ladder that they are (supposedly) forced to sell their body in exchange for economic resources. This comes out of the assumption that this line of work is dirty and not desirable, something that puts the woman in danger, and something that can never be considered a valid form of employment (CRM 2307 Class Notes: March 14th). All sex workers are seen as being a certain ‘type’ of immoral woman, who has lost control of her life.
The women 's movement faces the dilemma of the ceiling glass, and it is inevitable as Casey Hayden and Mary King explain in Sex and Caste: A Kind of Memo published in 1965. The ceiling glass theory, essentially is that a group has set goals but will not be able to able to achieve their goals because of people, values, and or the state imposing or destabilizing the group. As for the women 's movement, change is possible but we don’t see the glass because there is no legitimate way to explain why society treats women a certain way. Both authors agree that when came to the topic of women oppression, amongst conversion between other women were recurrent issues and similar themes in terms of their personal life. And even beyond this women 's
She believed she was wrongfully terminated and discriminated against. The court concluded that the employer discriminated against the transgender female and awarded the plaintiff. The court explained, “ a person is considered transgender precisely because of the perception that his or her behavior transgresses gender stereotypes.”(Eoc,2011). The employer asserted that they made the decision to fire the employee based on potential lawsuits that may arise if the transgender women used the women’s restroom. Because of lack of evidence the case was won by the transgender women because the office she worked in only had unisex
In the case of Anna v her employers, a case for employment discrimination was created when her supervisor Michael first violated company policy then refused to mitigate the results of that violation. Anna did her part by requesting that policy violations stop and then asking for mitigation when the policy violations resulted in a hostile work environment for herself. The company failed to address either the policy violations with the supervisor or the resulting actions of those policy violations. Case of Discrimination Claims of hostile work environment as a result of employee discrimination are on the increase (Saadem, 2011). Title VII of the civil rights act of 1964 is intended to provide protection and relief against discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, and religion.
Most importantly above all, federal law prohibits this place of discrimination in a work place, a lawsuit is another possibility that an organization could face which would cost them a lot of money for lawyers and compensation to pay out if they lose to Shavonda and three other contractor.

Human resource approach would be the best authority to solve this because human resource recognize individual in organization have feelings that must be considered and also recognize that individual labor is an important ingredient for meeting organizational
The Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucrietia Mott, discusses injustices towards woman and the rights that have been withheld from them, such as voting and denied admittance into colleges. Stanton and Mott want readers, primarily men, to understand, to take action, and to fight against the opression that has been put on women of all ages, race and religion in the United States. Without the help of Stanton and Mott, womens rights may have been an overlooked issue yesterday and today, therefore, their message is incontestably crucial. To Stanton and Mott, women were created equal to men, and to further their declaration of this equality, they state that the rights that have been unfairly
They aren 't actual people like us men. Consequently, giving them a certain name or distinction is pointless” (Hartmann, “Frat Email Explains Women Are "Targets," Not "Actual People") Thus, even if it were Middle Eastern men who were discussed, they would have at least received the status of ‘human’ instead of sex “targets” before being demoted from that status based on
