Choose one of the following questions:

Discussion Question 1

Betty is a female production line worker at TechLine. She is a single mother who is seven months pregnant with her fourth child. TechLine is considering moving Betty from the production line to office work. The move would eliminate Betty’s chance to make overtime pay. Advise TechLine on the discrimination issues involved.

Discussion Question 2

They are considering expanding from Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, to adding a second shift from 5:00 pm to midnight and weekend hours on Saturday and Sunday in order to meet product demand. Many of BT’s workers attend church services on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, in addition to other church activities on weeknights. Advise BT Electronics on the discrimination issues involved.
