Discrimination in the workplace
A local Italian restaurant chain is interviewing and hiring in-house for a regional district restaurant manager. Ryan, a 49-year-old male, applied for this promotion. Along with him, three other employees applied for the promotion: Pam, Rick, and Chris. Pam, a 40-year-old female, was promoted and not Ryan. Of course, Ryan believes that he was equally qualified for the promotion, should have received the promotion, and therefore felt he was discriminated against. Based on this scenario, address the following in your initial post:
What current laws apply to the case study and why?
What does Ryan need provide for a discrimination case? What evidence does Ryan need to prove discrimination occurred?
What are the steps Ryan should take, if any, for a discrimination case?
Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words.
