Carter Cleaning Company: A Question of Discrimination
Q.1. Is it true, as Jack Carter claims, that “we can’t be accused of being discriminatory
because we hire mostly women and minorities anyway”?
No, that is not true. Because of the questions they are asking, they could still face discriminatory
suits because of the nature of the questions. The phrase, “two wrongs don’t make a right comes to
mind”, just because they are hiring minorities and women does not make the company in the clear.
Also, they could face reverse discrimination by only hiring women and minorities. Although Jack may
think hiring mostly women and minorities are not discriminatory actions, they can very well be
discriminatory to another group of people. It is not wise to hire and specific one group of people.
Employers need to be more diverse as it relates to equal employment and employment law.
Q.2. How should she and her company address the sexual harassment charges and
problems?
Q.3. How should she and her company address the possible problems of age
discrimination?
Q.4. Given the fact that each of its stores has only a handful of employees, is her company
covered by equal rights legislation?
Q.5. And finally, aside from the specific problems, what other personnel management
matters (application forms, training, and so on) have to be reviewed given the need to bring
them into compliance with equal rights laws?
