Employment Law Unit 3: Your first step is to become acquainted with Ms. Shewin and the fact pattern. Ima Shewin is a year-old African-American woman with advanced degrees in English and journalism from the University of Chicago.
She has been employed by The Blabber, a newspaper in Atlanta, Georgia, for 10 years. She started as an entrylevel researcher. Two years later, she was promoted to a junior-level reporter position, and two years after that, to a senior-level reporter position.
She has now been a senior-level reporter for the last six years. During the first eight years of her employment, Shewin reported to George Doright.
Two years ago, The Blabber reorganized, and Doright was moved to another division in the company. Following the reorganization, two editors have retired. Although Shewin applied for these positions, they were not offered to her.
In fact, she was only invited to interview for one of the positions, although she believes she met the qualifications for both. Last month, she applied for a junior-editor position she has been after for several years now.
Based upon the qualifications that were identified in the job's classified ad, she felt she Ima shewin memo a shoo-in. She applied and was interviewed. The interview with Mr. King did not go as well as she had hoped.
The interview took place over lunch in a restaurant. King started out the conversation by engaging in seemingly harmless social banter, but Shewin was uncomfortable with his personal questions about her relationship with her boyfriend.
A few weeks after the interview, the company announced that it was hiring Gene Whiz, someone from outside the company. Whiz is 26 years old and recently earned a master's degree in journalism from the University of Chicago.
He has worked as a reporter for a small local newspaper. Shewin believes a number of factors may have been held against her. For example, only three women are in the upper levels of management, and all were promoted prior to the reorganization.
King was not involved in the promotion decisions for any of the three women.
King has a reputation for making sexist comments, which several women in the company find offensive, as do a number of men.
For example, he described one pregnant reporter as "barefoot and pregnant. She feels that rejecting him may have something to do with her not getting the job.
Another possible factor is that there are only five African-American senior managers in the company. Shewin has heard through the rumor mill that Whiz is part AfricanAmerican. Also, prior to Mr. Doright's transfer, Shewin filed a complaint against some of her male colleagues. Apparently the men whose cubicles were surrounding Shewin's area had a habit of discussing their weekend dates in graphic detail on Monday mornings.
Although they did not make these comments directly to Shewin, the conversations PA The Employment Relationship - Shewin Memorandum were quite loud and she overheard them regularly. After several months of hoping they would stop, Shewin brought this matter to Mr. Doright, who sternly told the employees to stop such behavior.
However, since Arthur King became the senior manager, her coworkers have reverted to their old behavior, and King has taken no action against them, despite Shewin's repeated complaints to him. In fact, Shewin has observed King laughing at the conversations as he walked by.
He did not, however, participate in the conversations. Finally, Shewin is more than 40 years old and has concerns that she may be getting passed over because of her age.This memo was written without taking into consideration the audience.
