This assignment explores two key areas of employment law—Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA). Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes guidelines related to minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping, and child labor. Some companies find themselves facing legal challenges when they do not adhere to these key employment laws.
In your assignment, please address the following questions:
- How does Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protect you?
- Research and analyze a case where a company violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. What did the EEOC do?
- How does the FLSA help to determine an employee’s pay?
- The FLSA has had a number of amendments over the years. How would you change it to fit today’s business world?
