  5. Conclusion

In Heartland Corners, 75 per cent of the white population has completed high school compared to 25 per cent of the other minority groups. How is the information important in considering whether Gelato is in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits most of the discrimination and harassment in the workplaces. The provision of the Title VII covers all the state, local government, private employees as well as educational institutions that have at least 15 employees or more. The Act prohibits any discrimination that may be meted against the individuals on the basis of the origin, religion, sex, color, race etc. The above percentage of the people from the different racial groups that have high school diplomas can be used to judge that Gelato is not in compliance with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is important to note that even though the white population makes up 50 per cent of the population in Heartland Corners, USA and that 75 per cent of that population holds a high school diploma, which does not give the firm the authority to hire an entirely white cleaning crew in its processing facility. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to the firm due to the fact that it has 100 workers in its cheese processing plant; the value of which is above the 15 employees that is required as a minimum for the Act to apply. It can be noted that Gelato Cheese Company is involved in discrimination as the statistic of the minority that has high school diploma is too significant to be ignored by the firm. 25 per cent of the minority that lives in Heartland Corners and thus the firm cannot ignore that whole population and hire an entirely white cleaning crew.

The above practice by the firm amounts to great levels of discrimination on the part of the firm; as there is at least one minority who is qualified for every 3 qualified persons who are hired by the firm (US EEOC, 2013a para 17-18). The firm is in contravention of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The statistics at Gelato shows under Title VII of the Act that there is a disparate impact as the employment practice of the firm causes a disparate impact on the basis of race. If 25 percent of the minority has a high school diploma, then it follows that the white only workforce shows an employment practice that is highly discriminatory based on the race of the individuals.

[...] This will ensure that the firm will not face legal issues associated with non- compliance with the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (US EEOC, 2013a para. 20). When such quotas in the employment are reserved for the minority groups that are qualified, no disparate impact suits can be brought against the firm. The above will be due to the fact that the employees will not be able to point to the statistics as the basis of the proof that the employment practice of the firm causes disparate impact on the basis of the race of the individuals.
