Week 2 Discussion – The Legal Environment

Please respond to the following questions and give your reason for each position you share:

The women are suing because they are being fired for being too heavy. Is that illegal under state and federal law?
David’s claim is that the woman was fired because the image of Wing Shack, which is central to his business, allows him to discipline and fire waitresses for not maintaining the image he wants to uphold. Is that claim accurate?
Mindy further claims that since giving birth to her son, she has had problems maintaining her weight. In other words, having children changes a woman’s physique, making it more difficult to return to one’s pre-baby weight. Could she have a legal case on the basis of the Americans with Disabilities Act?
