Hello, and thanks for the request.
Again, your post was cut short. Please repost questions 7-10.
My apologies ;( thank you!
7.Eric, a supervisor at X Corporation, sexually harasses a subordinate employee by constantly asking her for dates, when she repeatedly and firmly has said "no." The supervisor also makes jokes of a sexual nature around this employee. She becomes so stressed out one day that she had to "clock out" early and go home to compose herself, thereby losing four hours of work. X Corporation learns of the misconduct, and promptly fires the supervisor for violating its sexual harassment policies, and then the company also apologizes to the employee; but she sues the company for sexual harassment nonetheless. Assuming sufficient evidence, the likely result of such a lawsuit would be: a. The employer would not be liable since it has policies to combat sexual harassment which it enforced by firing the supervisor. b. The employer would be liable but only if the employee could demonstrate that the employer knew or should have known that its supervisor was sexually harassing employees. c. The employer would be absolutely liable for the sexual harassment regardless of knowledge or intent. d. The employer would not be liable since workplace romance is common in the office today, and the employee was probably too sensitive about it. 8-National Coal Association (NCA) is a group of independent coal mining companies. Demand for coal falls. The price drops. Coal Refiners Association, a group of independent coal refining companies, agrees to buy NCA's coal and they all agree to sell it according to a schedule that will increase the price. This agreement is a. a per se violation of the Sherman Act. b. exempt from the antitrust laws. c. subject to continuing review by the appropriate federal agency. d. subject to the rule of reason. 9-Jill and Ken are involved in an automobile accident. Lyle is a passenger in Ken's car. Jill wants to ask Lyle, as a witness, some questions in person concerning the accident. Lyle's answers to the questions characteristically are given in a. a deposition. b. a response to interrogatories. c. a response to a judge's request at a pretrial conference. d. none of the above. 10.Juana works for Zorro Company. She is an employee at-will. Zorro neither believes in nor adheres to "Take Your Child to Work Day," as Zorro feels there will be too many disruptions with all those "kids running around." Zorro tells the employees of this policy. Nonetheless, Juana brings her daughter to work. There are no problems, and Juana does her regular job; but when Zorro discovers the child was at work, he fires Juana. Juana wants to sue for wrongful discharge. What will be the likely result of her lawsuit? a. She will prevail since she clearly was treated unethically and there were no problems and Juana is a single mother. b. She will prevail since she is protected by the federal Family Medical Leave Act. c. She will lose since she was an employee at-will. d. She will prevail since she was discriminated against because of her and her daughter's gender and because she was a parent.
