Internet/Case Study Assignment:
On pages 139-140 of your textbook ( Noe, R.A., Hollenbeck, J.R., Gerhart, B., & Wright, D.M. Human Resource Management: Gaining a Competitive Advantage. (10th Edition) New York: McGraw-Hill Book Company. ISBN: 978-0078112768), read the case study on Home Depot and answer the two questions at the end of the case. Use the internet to identify at least one other company that faced a similar issue, and compare the two companies – did they resolve things in a similar way, or using a different approach? In your response you must apply concepts from the text and incorporate concepts from an outside source. You must include this information in your assignment by noting them with APA in-text citations and a references page. See the announcements and document sharing on how to apply concepts in your internet assignment. Your paper should be approximately 4 pages in length including the References Page.
If Home Depot was correct in that it was not discriminating, but simply filling positions consistent with those who applied for them ( and very few women were applying for customer service positions) given your reading of this chapter, was the firm guilty of discrimination? If so, under what theory?
