LAWS 310 Week 5 Simulation

Simulation: Sexual harassment lawsuit

This simulation involves a hearing at the trial court level on a motion for summary judgment in a case involving the employer’s liability for alleged sexual harassment.

Motion

Before a case goes to trial, the parties use various motions to refine and define the issues. One such motion is the Motion for Summary Judgment. In this case, the employer’s Motion for Summary judgment claims that the employee has failed to state sufficient facts for a jury to be able to decide that a) the conduct complained of constitutes sexual harassment and b) the employee who allegedly is guilty of harassment is a “supervisor”, and c) that the company maintained a “hostile workplace.”

Briefs

Motions for Summary Judgment are submitted in writing and are supported by written arguments, called Briefs. Judges will look at the motions, the briefs, and any other sworn statements that parties have made, such as oral depositions or sworn answers to discovery (see page 171 in your text) and will also hear oral argument from the parties’ attorneys on the issues raised in the motion.

The Facts

The moving party, in this case Big Car Company, is attempting to convince the judge that its employee, Clarence, did not sexually harass Maybelle Darcy, and that Clarence is not a supervisor. To win its point, Big Car must convince the judge the facts stated by Ms Darcy are not sufficient at law to constitute sexual harassment, are not sufficient at law to show that there was a “hostile work environment” and are not sufficient at law to show that Clarence is a supervisor.
Ms Darcy, in order to get her case to a jury, must convince the judge of the opposite.
Supervisors and middle managers are routinely named as defendants in sexual harassment cases. The awards can be quite large. The cases themselves can take many years to resolve. The case upon which this simulation is based was in litigation for three full years.

Before Watching

Before you watch the simulation, review the material that follows. Watch the simulation, then complete the assignment below.
1.      In Faragher v. City of Boca Raton, 524 U.S. 775 and Harris v. Forklift Systems, 510 U.S. 17, the Supreme Court set out tests for “hostile workplace.” The full opinions can be found in Doc Sharing
We directed courts to determine whether an environment is sufficiently hostile or abusive by “looking at all the circumstances,” including the “frequency of the discriminatory conduct; its severity; whether it is physically threatening or humiliating, or a mere offensive utterance; and whether it unreasonably interferes with an employee’s work performance.”. Most recently, we explained that Title VII does not prohibit “genuine but innocuous differences in the ways men and women routinely interact with members of the same sex and of the opposite sex."..."simple teasing,” offhand comments, and isolated incidents (unless extremely serious) will not amount to discriminatory changes in the “terms and conditions of employment.”
(It is not) “the ordinary tribulations of the workplace, such as the sporadic use of abusive language, gender-related jokes, and occasional teasing.” Faragher
"...in assessing a hostile environment claim, the totality of the circumstances must be examined, including "the frequency of the discriminatory conduct; its severity; whether it is physically threatening or humiliating, or a mere offensive utterance; and whether it unreasonably interferes with an employee's work performance." Harris v. Forklift
Conduct must be objectively offensive to a “reasonable person” and seen as subjectively offensive by the person claiming sexual harassment.
1.      EEOC Enforcement Guidance Bulletin on Vicarious Employer Liability for Unlawful Harassment by Supervisors (the full text can be found in Doc Sharing) states the Supreme Court has made clear that employers are subject to vicarious liability for unlawful harassment by supervisors. The bulletin gives the following information on who is a “supervisor”. (The entire bulletin can be found in Doc Sharing)
An individual qualifies as an employee’s “supervisor” if:
o    the individual has authority to undertake or recommend tangible employment decisions affecting the employee; or
o    the individual has authority to direct the employee’s daily work activities.

1.Authority to Undertake or Recommend Tangible Employment Actions

“Tangible employment decisions” are decisions that significantly change another employee’s employment status. Such actions include, but are not limited to, hiring, firing, promoting, demoting, and reassigning the employee. An individual whose job responsibilities include the authority to recommend tangible job decisions affecting an employee qualifies as his or her supervisor even if the individual does not have the final say. As long as the individual’s recommendation is given substantial weight by the final decision maker(s), that individual meets the definition of supervisor.

2.Authority to Direct Employee’s Daily Work Activities

An individual who is authorized to direct another employee’s day-to-day work activities qualifies as his or her supervisor even if that individual does not have the authority to undertake or recommend tangible job decisions.
On the other hand, someone who merely relays other officials’ instructions regarding work assignments and reports back to those officials does not have true supervisory authority. Furthermore, someone who directs only a limited number of tasks or assignments would not qualify as a “supervisor.”

LAWS 310 Week 7 Homework

Homework
1.      The internet has made the world smaller and enlarged our access to information. However, for every positive benefit of the internet, there is a negative aspect. We have a loss of privacy, our financial profile can be compromised, and we cannot trust all information we access on the internet. What does Justin Hurwitz mean when he states that the internet was "built on a foundation of trust"? What is the current state of this foundation of trust? You should cite to examples and resources to support your opinion.
1.      Every day we read stories of people who engage in deception on the internet, whether it is creating a dating profile which bears no likeness to what they really look like, or students who find information and pass it off as their own work. Should there be ethical standards for behavior on the internet? What would you propose and how could those standards be enforced? Should people be able to say or do whatever they choose in an online environment? Are there circumstances in which information on the internet should be censored? How do the United States and China differ in how each country allows its citizens' access to information on the internet?
You may include your answers to both questions in one Word document. Your answers to each question should be in the form of a short essay. Two or three sentences will not be sufficient. If you cite to any resources, including the text or articles from this week, you must use correct APA formatting. All submissions should include a cover page, body of text, and a references page.
