Examining Disparate Treatment

Write and submit a 3-4 page analysis of a selected legal case involving disparate treatment in selection and hiring.


Many U.S. laws, ordinances, and guidelines directly impact the hiring and selection process. Legal compliance is important to protect the individual and the organization. It is crucial for the HRM professional to understand issues surrounding discrimination and how to best avoid pitfalls. This includes awareness not only of disparate treatment, but also of disparate (or adverse) impact and how to analyze the issue. In this assessment, you will select and analyze a legal case involving disparate treatment in selection and hiring.


Workplace discrimination—disparate treatment—is intentional employment discrimination. This assessment provides you with the opportunity to analyze a case involving disparate treatment and demonstrate your understanding of the factors involved.


The time it takes to complete an assessment can vary greatly. But it often takes longer than we think to explore the scope of a task, research it, write a draft, and then come back and revise it. Consider the following as rough guideposts for setting aside the time you need to do your work. You will want to adjust these as you learn more about your own pace and working style.

  • Research and reading: 4 hours.

  • Distinguish the theory of disparate treatment from the theory of disparate (or adverse) impact.
