Description:

The paper explains how "Crone v. United Parcel Service (UPS)" concerned whether it was gender discrimination for UPS to refuse to promote Crone to a supervisory position based on concerns that she was overly emotional and could not handle confrontations. The paper looks at how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sex-based discrimination and sexual harassment and points out that had the court decided the case in favor of Crone, the court would have been institutionalizing the sex-based stereotype that women are emotionally weaker than men. The paper concludes that because Crone merely reflected the current state of the law, DWI does not need to take additional measures to incorporate Crone into its EEO policy book and training.

From the Paper:

"Because DWI has enough employees to make the terms of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other anti-discrimination legislation apply to it, DWI's human resources department must remain aware of proscriptions against discrimination. The issue in Crone v. United Parcel Service (UPS) dealt with whether it was gender discrimination for UPS to refuse to promote Crone, one of its employees, to a supervisory position based on UPS's concerns that Crone was overly emotional and could not handle confrontations, due to her propensity to cry. Before looking at the decision the court reached in Crone, it is important to look at how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines sex-based discrimination and sexual harassment."
