In reviewing the Bill of Rights, discuss which amendment has the biggest influence on businesses. Give an example to support your answer. The biggest influence on businesses in my opinion is the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964- The Employment Discrimination Section Section 703. Unlawful Employment Practices. (a) It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer- to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges or employment, because of such individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. In my opinion if you qualify for the job based the requirement of the job and you are a good candidate you should be given a chance. If any employer hires based on what they feel personally about the candidate or how they look they would be breaking the law. I feel everyone should be given an equal opportunity.
From a manager’s point of view, tell what might happen if a manager does not know or understand the contents of Chapter 4. Explain the possible ramifications. From a manager’s point of view, if they don’t understand or don’t know the contents of Chapter 4 this could be very damaging to the business. The U.S. Constitution gives the federal and state governments the power to regulate many business activities, but it also provides that certain rights cannot be taken away from individuals and organizations. A manager not willing to follow the law causes the business to loses money, have legal issues, and would act unconstitutional.
