From the Paper:

"Every individual has the nature to pursue his/her interests. But when it comes to working together, these interests may often collide with each other's. Therefore, there has to be a balancing act which should ensure the protection of interests of everyone. With a multitude of laws, regulations, statutes and other considerations in the area of employment law, the federal government, through Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (1964), has created a basic framework for employers to ensure that employees are treated fairly on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age, thus reducing their liabilities. One of the outcomes of our forefather's leap into the American experiment is the ability of individual states to enact laws pertaining to their unique situations."
