Instructions
The purpose of this assignment is to critique advice that a consultant has given regarding Affirmative Action in the workplace.

Please read the following scenario and respond to the questions below:

Scenario
A consultant advises the following for your company: 1) Since you have a number of jobs at which there are more men than women and you desire greater diversity, affirmative action would be a good idea; 2) Since you have less than 50 employees, there is no need to put your affirmative action plan into writing; 3) “Band” test scores so that all female candidates are in one band and all male candidates in another. Then alternate in hiring the top candidates from each band; 4) Be sure to consider affirmative action goals in all of your employment decisions, and 5) Be prepared to continue your affirmative action efforts indefinitely.

Provide an overall critique the consultant’s advice in accordance with what you learned this week. Then for each numbered piece of advice please respond to the following:

Was this good legal advice. If not, what is the problem with the advice and would it lead to any legal challenges?
What should the consultant be advising legally?
Parameters
Using APA formatting, write an essay of around 500 words (excluding the title and reference page).

All papers will be graded for content, clarity, grammar/spelling, and appropriate use of APA formatting guidelines. A minimum of two references must be utilized.
