What civil rights laws may prohibit Marwan’s conduct with his fellow co-worker? Do those laws apply to his conduct toward the park guest? The civil rights laws’ covering this case comes under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, 1964 (Cooper, 2010). This legislation safeguards the employees against discrimination at workplace on the basis of caste, color, creed, gender, origin (Cooper, 2010). The law applies to all employers whether national, state or local. Any company having fifteen or more employees has to adhere to this law. As per this law, a commission called Equal Employment Opportunities Commission has been set up, to protect people against discrimination and impose this as well as other applicable laws. Discrimination at place of work has always been in existence since long before any rules were applied. The U.S. Authorities initiated this law after hearing several cases of harassment. The law safeguards both the employees as well as the applicants applying for the job. The law states that no employer can take recruitment decision solely on the basis of the caste, color, creed, gender, or origin of the applicant. The company or employer cannot favor anyone on the basis of these factors while selecting or promoting. Also the employer cannot assign any task to the employee on the basis of these factors. The employer has no right to determine the remuneration of an employee on the basis of these factors. He cannot terminate the services of any worker on the basis of these factors. Also the employer is not supposed to show favoritism for paying perquisites, plan of sequestration, and leave on account of disability. The most important consideration in this law is that employer cannot harass the employee on the basis of any of these factors i.e. caste, color, creed, gender and origin. It is unlawful to frontier, isolate or categorize employees or the prospective candidates in any manner that can hamper their employment opportunities. The civil right laws are applicable to the park guests. Employers, as well as some employees have said either said or preformed sexual remarks and gestures at some employees, especially the females that it would be right to consider this behavior against the civil rights law- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, 1964. He has been described by the colleagues as a discriminator towards the opposite sex. He has misconduct his actions and behavior and has also harassed them to stop working. Mr. Marwan has committed sexual harassment of the female employees in two ways. First he made inappropriate body contact with them and second he even threatened them to go on a date else he would get them fired. So both these encounters are of the harassment under sexual nature and are governed by the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, 1964. The unjust treatment given to female employees is punishable under the Act. The conduct is not only dishonorable but also immoral (Clark, 1991).

Did Marwan commit sexual harassment? If so, what type? Explain your answers and the terms you use. Sexual harassment occurs in the place of work when the employer passes remarks verbally or non-verbally or makes a physical advance that is intolerable to the employee. If the employer’s behavior results in situation due to which the employee’s job is at risk or creates mental stress which adversely affects the performance at work or develops a non friendly working environment then it leads to sexual harassment. These sufferers can be any person who is affected by such unlawful behavior. The civil right laws safeguard the employees against such intolerable and unethical behavior of employers. Mr. Marwan has indulged in such unethical behavior. The national and state laws forbid any employer to undertake such activity. They also clearly mention that an employer cannot strike back in opposition to any worker who charges him under this law. Mr. Marwan has committed sexual harassment of the female employees in two ways. Firstly he made inappropriate body contact with them by touching her breasts and other body parts and secondly he even threatened them to go on a date else he would get them fired. Both these instances come under the ambit of this law of sexual harassment. The civil rights law forbids the employer to discriminate on the basis of sex. The sexual harassment clause is covered under this sex factor. There are two types of sexual advances. One, when the employer asks the employee to return sexual favors in condition to the employment. These favors could be verbal, non-verbal or physical. They could be of explicit or implicit in nature. This type of sexual harassment is called Quid Pro Quo sexual harassment under the law. The second type of sexual harassment is creating a non friendly and non working environment for the employee i.e. creating a hostile environment for work. In this the working atmosphere of the employee is made unfriendly by passing remarks of sexual nature and disturbing the mindset of the employee. This type of environment affects the performance of the employee at workplace.

What is the legal nature of Marwan's employment? Legally, Mr. Marwan is not employed with the company. He has no employment contract with the organization. An employee is said to be employed only when he has an employment contract. The law can offer protection under labor law only if the employment contract is put in place. This is applicable even for those circumstances where there is no written employment contract between the employer and employee. There can be oral employment contracts also. The employment contract is the basis of the bond between the employer and employee. It is because of this contract that an employer employee relationship is created. All the labor laws will only be applicable if there is an employer employee relationship i.e. there is an oral or written employment contract. As per the Act, the meaning of the employee is a person who is employed by the employer. Exceptions to the definition are those persons who has been voted for the office of the federal, state or local by educated and recognized constituency or any person who is selected by the above mentioned officer for his own team or any appointed person for making policies and agreements or any instant consultant chosen for exercising the legal rights at the office. This exemption does not cover individuals who are preachers of the civil laws of the service agreements of the State, federal, any government authority or any political division. In cases of employment in other geographical territory, the term covers only US citizens.
Though Mr. Marwan has no legal employment contract with the Studio Five but he can be said as the employee of the company because he has been working there since a long period of time. It would be wise to apply legal labor laws on him as well.

What actions and steps should Studio Five take against Marwan? Explain what actions you considered and why you either recommend them or reject them. The employer Studio Five Theme Park has full right to take action against Mr. Marwan. The allegation of the female employee has to be proved after which the employer can take appropriate action against him for his misconduct. A general punishment could be that the employer can deduct certain perquisites available to the employee. Also there is a probability that the employer can deduct allowances from the remuneration of the employee. The employer can also sue the employee for paying damages caused to him and his company and also the pay the legal fees involved. As per the civil rights law, the range of the damages varies between $50,000 to $ 300,000 as per the terms and conditions. The company can sue the employee for hurting the reputation of the company. Also the most important action would be to terminate the services of the employee. This action is seen important in cases of sexual harassment to safeguard the image of the employer and the company in public and also forbid other employees to indulge in such activities. A stricter course of action becomes an example for everybody. As per the Act, the employee is liable to claim punitive damages from the employer. The legal remedy available to the employees against the discrimination of the employer will not only get compensatory damages but also the punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed for those circumstances where the guilty is severely punished. Unlike the compensatory damages where the designation as well as the remuneration of the plaintiff is brought back to the original position i.e. before the crime was committed, punitive damages do not offer such window. They are simple rules to punish the offender. Usually under compensatory damages the employees who have discriminated levy reimbursement of legal fees or payment of full remuneration, getting back the desired designation, etc. but this is not so with the punitive damages. The main aim of the punitive damages is to penalize the guilty for his misbehavior. These are especially levied in cases of sexual harassment. For claiming the punitive damages, the victim need not prove in the court of law unlawful behavior.

Discuss Marwan’s allegation that he is being discriminated against based on his disability and what response Studio Five may have to that allegation. What would each of them have to prove in court.
It will be unjust to say that Mr. Marwan is discriminated against his physical disability. The senior position that Mr. Marwan assumes in the company has not come just like this. It must have taken a long period of time to establish such position. This indicates that physical disability did not play a big role in progressing him towards the senior position in the company. For proving the case in the court of law, it is necessary to prove that the instance happens rather than taking plea under the physical disability clause. The employer Studio Five terminated the services of the employee, Marwan. This was a right course of action. As per the case law it is clear that Mr. Marwan is a man of unethical behavior. He has been constantly involved in such kind of activities. When the employees brought the case in front of the employer, Studio five it was aptly clear that the company was already aware of such instances happening before. When Marwan finally crossed his limits beyond the boundary it became clear that the company felt right to terminate his services. Had the employer not terminated the services, the employee with whom such act was done, would have lost faith in the ideology of the company. So the action of the company is truly justified. The given situation is very dicey as the cases of sexual harassment are difficult to prove in the court of law unless there is a third party who had witnesses the incidence. However the act clearly says that any act of discrimination or misconduct has to be proved in the court of law notwithstanding any doubts against it. Mr. Marwan can take a plea that his termination was done immediately without conducting any investigation. So because he was terminated immediately following a complaint, without giving him a reasonable time to justify himself, led him to believe that he was removed from the services because of his physical disability. Also there is a flip side to the story. The Act provides that the complainant should ensure that the orders of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission prior to filing the case. He is in a position where he cannot prove his point and claim after a rational suspicion will surely can negative points for him. The female employee will have to prove that act of sexual harassment has been done on her. This will be hard to prove if there were no witnesses at the site of event. However keeping in mind the past behavior of the offender, Mr. Marwan there is little room of doubt that such an incidence did not occur. The female employee has a strong case as the reputation of the offender Mr. Marwan is not good with the other employees as well.

If the female employees sues Studio Five Theme Park, what defenses can Studio Five use? Are they liable for Marwan's conduct even if they were unaware of and did not approve of Marwan's actions? Explain your answers and the terms you use.
If the female employee sues the company, Studio Five Theme Park, then the company can always put forward a defense that it was unaware of the situation. They can also prove in the court of law that Mr. Marwan is a man of high standards and has been with the company for a long period of time. Keeping in mind his physical disability it becomes difficult to trust the allegations. They can obviously go against the female employee and favor Mr. Marwan as he has been in service since a long period of time. Mr. Marwan is the employee of the studio. So it is their personal liability take due course of action against an employee who indulges in misbehavior. The company becomes easily liable for the actions of the employee even if they are unaware of it. Every company becomes liable for the actions of its employees. When the employee is hired, whatever actions he does at the place of work becomes the responsibility of the company in which he is working. So ideally it is the liability of the company to protect the female employee against the ghastly actions of the other employee, Mr. Marwan. It is truly justified that the company did not approve of the misconduct of the fellow employee because it was unreasonable to do so. It would have been unethical if the company would have favored Mr. Marwan.
If Marwan was a member of a union that had a collective bargaining agreement with Studio Five, would that change any of your previous answers?
Yes the answer would have changed in such a case when the union has the power to protect the employees because Marwan was a man of high knowledge and dominance of level in the company. He was in such a strong position that if nay female employee also made allegations against him then it would have been very difficult to prove it and terminate him. Collective bargaining is a process in which there are formal negotiations between the employers and the selected representatives which were selected among the workers. When there was collective bargaining the Union and the management made various kinds of discussions to determine wages, benefits and other working conditions (Silva , 1996). Agreements have reached the bargaining table which is written legally in the binding contract or other collective bargaining agreement. Every member of the company has the right to have a collective bargaining treatment. The goal is to provide a process in which the workers have the equal power with the management in order so as to influence the working conditions. The right to bargain together was found in the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) passed by Congress in 1935. This act says that the individual workers have the power to obtain what they want but together with the Union they have the right and the power to obtain. When the efforts are united together than mutual gains are seen. A union deserves the best to improve the conditions where they work as union power is a member power. If the members are actively organizing than the agendas are there for improvements and participate in bargaining process.

What types of company policies, procedures, and actions should businesses employ to avoid harassment of their employees?
An employer has the responsibility to maintain the work place that is free of any kind of sexual harrassment. This is a very big legal obligation and very important also. If there is any kind of sexual harrasment in the work place than there will be poor employee morale, low productivity and the company will have a bad name.

...According to the Organizational Behavior third edition book the A- Team was consisted of five people, who didn’t know each other. They consist of Rebecca a 27 year old Marketing Manager, Aran a 52 year old Founder and CEO for a large Italian Fashion Company, Katie a 32year old Financial Analyst for a Wall street firm, Cameron a 23 year old Internet Entrepreneur who has his own small company, and last Pranarisha a 31 year old Manager for a non government organization that provides supports to poverty stricker area of Thailand. The A- team would have been ok if they haven’t had a member like Aran with the big head. Aran thought he could just place the other four because he had the most experience. I think Rebecca was right to let Aran know before it got started. The three was wrong for meeting without Aran and Pranarisha deciding whose going to do what part without them been present or giving the two a call while everyone was present. I think Aran age played a big part in this group because he was an older business man with adult kids and he probably look at the group as kids. I think Pranarisha shouldn’t have walked out without expressing her oppioion to the group before going to tell the professor.

...Target Behavior Identify Target Behavior: The behavior I have chosen to modify is my sleeping behavior. As a college student sleep is something that I don’t get enough of. I chose to modify this behavior because sleep is an important part of life. I want to be tired when I go to bed and awake when I get up in the morning. I wanted to modify this behavior because I think having good sleeping patterns is a good trait to have in life. So much more can be done when we are awake and refreshed after a full nights sleep. Baseline Data: I observed my bedtimes for a week. They vary from night to night. One night I went to bed at midnight and the next night it was 10:45. For the entire week the times varied. The earliest I went to bed was 10:30 and the latest was 12:45. I do get up at the same time every morning because I have class at 8am every day. The fact that I go to bed at different times each night causes my body to respond differently to sleepiness during the day. Usually I would take a nap the day after going to bed late at night. Or I would sleep through my alarm and miss my 8 o’ clock class. Sleeping through class is definitely a bad result of not enough sleep. Taking naps once in a while is OK but I took a nap 4 out of 5 days this week while recording baseline data. I can get other things done during that time if I wasn’t so tired. Stimulus Conditions: The main stimulus condition that is present is my roommate. We usually stay up late at night......

...Behavior Change Summary My behavior change project was to get more sleep at night. The goal of my behavior change plan was to get at least seven or eight hours of sleep and to determine the amount of sleep that was best for my body. I wanted to feel energized when I woke up in the morning, and to continue that feeling throughout the day. My plan was to have set times that I would need to be in bed by. I began with the amount of sleep I was currently getting each night, which was only about four or five hours. I then increased the amount of sleep I was getting by a half hour, and continued to get that amount of sleep for a week, until I increased the amount by another half hour. I repeated this process each week until I received eight hours of sleep per night. I was not to take any naps during the day if I did not receive the planned amount of sleep that night. The reason for this type of plan was because I knew I would not be able to just increase the amount of sleep to eight hours right off the bat. I needed to gradually get my body used to that kind of sleep each night. I feel that in a sense I did accomplish my goal. Although I am not at exactly eight hours of sleep per night, I have found the number of hours of sleep each night that my body needs to feel rejuvenated. I have found that eight hours of sleep each night is too much for my body. I wake up feeling way too tired. However, when I was at weeks three, four, and five, I woke up feeling awake and energized and it......

We have to have a complete understanding of how the organizational behavior works and to help in the better management of employees/people in any organization. Some of the strategies and policies that many organizations adopt will also depend on the organizational behavior. (Kelly, Joe. Organizational behavior) One of the main components of an organizational behavior is the people. Of course, when managed in the right way the organization will perform extremely well in the market. Each one person has a goal to fulfill and they want to achieve that. There should always be proper communication amongst everyone in the company. Managers should enhance communication of their employees. The management team should focus on making sure that there is an existing trust between all employees. Teamwork plays a big part as well and will help to improve employee efficiency. The organization should always keep track of all competitors in the market, labor forces and also reaction of the people to the changes that are always happening in the global market.

...Introduction: A successful change in behavior requires a careful planning and eagerness to challenge the unexpected obstacles. I would like to practice a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly for an hour 5 days a week. A baseline for current behavior is a mean of 0.37 hours per weak. I hypothesize 0.71 hours more exercise each week would help me feel better and may help me loose some weight. Behavior Assessment My target behavior is to exercise 5 days a week (Monday through Friday) for an hour. To achieve this goal, I established a baseline for my exercise behavior. I recorded the dates and times I exercised per day for the last seven days. I started recording data from June 11th, 2011 at 00:00 and stopped recording on June 17th, 2011 at 23:59. This seven day period was before the intervention week. Based on this information, I set a goal for the intervention week one. Intervention week one started Sunday June 18, 2011 based on a 24 hour period from 00:00 to 23:59. My goal for the intervention week one is to exercise more. I recorded the entry time at the first possible moment before I started exercise, and I recorded the exit time as soon as I stopped. I chose to graph the data using a bar graph. Time is on the horizontal axis labeled by the day of the week. The quantity of exercise (in hours per day) was labeled on the vertical axis. Figure 1 shows the recorded values from Saturday June 11, 2011 to Friday June 24, 2011. For the week before intervention, the......

...The purpose of the study was to determine possible differences in leadership behaviors, using the Revised Leadership for Sport Scale (RLSS), between male and female coaches and among different coaching levels. The researchers submitted two hypotheses. The first hypothesis was that male and female coaches would respond differently to the RLSS in overall leadership behaviors. The second hypothesis was that differences on the RLSS would occur among coaching levels: junior high, high school, and college. The sample was nonrandom, including 162 coaches that were chosen on a volunteer basis. Within the sample, 118 (0.73) of the coaches were male, while 44 (0.27) were female. With regard to coaching level, 25 (0.15) were junior high coaches, 99 (0.61) high school, and 38 (0.24) at the college level. While this is a good sample size, the problem lies with the distribution of the sample. The sample number for junior high coaches, in particular, is rather low. A larger sample with regard to all categories would have aided in the data analysis, particularly when looking for possible interactions between gender and coaching level. The instrument utilized was the Revised Leadership for Sport Scale (RLSS) developed by Zhang, Jensen, and Mann in 1996. This scale is used to measure six leadership behaviors: training and instruction, democratic, autocratic, social support, positive feedback, ......

He does not have an employment contract. He loves his job because of his seniority with the company and all the attention he receives from the guests in the park. Unknown to anyone, his prosthetic leg has no noticeable impact on Marwan's success in this position.
