DUE DATE: 20th

MARKS: 30 
TOPIC: Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action
To help the students practically understand difference between Equal
Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action; and the use of Equal
Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action.
Racial/ethnic minorities, women and persons with disabilities had been a
victim of unequal access to the benefits that an organization offered. There was
a need to develop some laws in order to provide everyone with equal
opportunity to enjoy these benefits based solely on qualification, thus Equal
Employment Opportunity Laws were developed. But discrimination that has
taken roots over the years could only be  treated by implementing the laws in
their true letter and spirit and by devising policies towards corrective action,
thus Affirmative Action (AA) was developed. Although it does not guarantee
equality but if equality actually exists, it must be shown by equal representation
of minorities in the workforce.

while giving a job vacancy advertisement that they abide by EEO laws, or are
taking Affirmative Action. Different strategies for taking Affirmative Action
can be applied, including Good Faith Effort Strategy and Quota Strategy.

This strategy focuses on changing those practices which have contributed to
excluding or underutilizing the minority groups or females. Corrective actions
may include placing advertisements where they can reach target groups, supporting services in favor of women such as day care and flexible working
hours, and establishing a training program in order to enable minority group
members to compete for entry-level jobs.
Quota Strategy:
This strategy attempts to eliminate obstacles in the way of minorities. Results
are achieved through hiring and promotion restrictions. With quota strategy,
“desirable” hiring goals are achieved by specifying quotas for specific minority

In case of job quota or selection, some vacancies are being fixed for female/disables person to give them respectable life in the society, if management selected any male whilst vacancy quota has been fixed for female, you may take legal action in term of "Affirmative action" can be taken against that that
