CARDWARE is growing by leaps and bounds. It has now opened 10 new stores nationwide under the name "The Sporty One." It has been agreed by the Board of Directors at CARDWARE Inc. that each store shall have a general manager and assistant manager who both were to act as sales persons and one additional sales person. The slogan the store advertises its sports ware with is "You don't have to be an athlete to look and feel like one." The current sports ware that "The Sporty One" carries shows a clothing distribution of 60% for females and 40% of its line is for males. However, it would eventually like for it to be a 50/50 distribution. The Cardigans research has demonstrated that the trend has been more female than male shoppers. Further, following the marketing theory of many high end clothing stores, CARDWARE prefers slender, young employees to work for it, so that the clothing line can keep with the image of being sporty.

Petunia Rotunda, a middle aged, slightly plump woman saw an ad online for a salesperson for The Sporty One and applied for the position. The ad read as follows:

WANTED: Salesperson experienced in retail sales or marketing preferred, energetic, youthful, athletic, and able to "sport" the clothing lines of The Sporty One with style. The Sporty One is a division of CARDWARE Inc. and proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Petunia has had 5 years of retail experience working in a garden shop that did have some flannel shirts and aprons as well as gardening gloves for sale. Noah Dahl, a college graduate in marketing also saw the ad and applied for the salesperson position at The Sporty One. Noah, a slender racquetball player has not had any retail experience but has had customer service experience for an online gaming company.

After interviewing both applicants, CARDWARE's General Manager, Chloe, one of the cousins of the Cardigan clan has decided to hire Noah. Petunia was outraged claiming that she should have been hired and that she has been discriminated against based on her age. CARDWARE contends that Noah was more qualified as per the advertisement as well as company image and future plans for the company; age had nothing to do with it.

Noah began work the following week. Still angry, Petunia visited The Sporty One. She began to harass Noah to the point where other customers started to leave the store. Having had enough insults, Noah grabbed Petunia by the arm and shoved her towards the door. She stumbled and ran into one of the clothing racks and thereafter knocked over 92-year-old Hetty Whitestone who was passing by the mall store. Hetty suffered a concussion and died.

• Use legal authority to support your position as well.

• What defenses might CARDWARE assert?

• If Hetty Whitestone's estate claims that CARDWARE should be responsible for Hetty's death, will it?

• What defenses might CARDWARE utilize?

Directions for Submitting Your Assignment:

Before you submit your Assignment, you should save your work on your computer in a location and with a name that you will remember. Make sure your Assignment is in the appropriate format (Word), then, when you are ready, you may submit on the Dropbox page.

Paper Submissions:

APA manuscript style dictates how your paper should appear on the page. For more information on APA style, visit http://www.apastyle.org/faqs.html

There are two types of APA manuscripts: Copy manuscripts (those submitted for publication) and final manuscripts (those not submitted for publication). Copy manuscripts are much more formal and may contain multiple sections. Specifically, they will have an abstract (a 1-paragraph summary of the paper). The papers you produce for most Kaplan University classes will be final manuscripts. Unlike copy manuscripts, final manuscripts do not, unless specifically required by an instructor, require an abstract.

They do include:
• A title page
• The paper itself (the discussion)
• A references page

A title page contains three items: A running head (a short version of the title), the paper's title, and the author's name. Traditionally, the author's affiliation (the university he or she attends or works for) appears below the author's name; however, many college instructors prefer students to put the course and section number in this place (because we all know which institution we are attending). The running title appears in the top right corner of every page, including the title page, right before the page number. The title, the author's name, and the author's affiliation (or course and section number) appear in the center of the title page.

Additional Helpful Assignment Reminders:

Be sure to avoid the use of first person. Instead convey your research utilizing third person.

• Keep all font color consistent throughout. If you copy and paste a link and it is in blue, hover your mouse over the link, right click, and select "REMOVE HYPERLINK" to keep the font color black like the rest of your submission.

• Use size 12 Times New Roman font.

• Utilize in-text citations. If a reference is listed in your reference page, it must be included within the body of your submission as well.

• Prepare an APA formatted reference page.

• Proofread your submission for any grammatical or sentence structure errors. Also, please refer to the rubric for this Assignment to make sure you have included that which you will be graded over before placing the same into the Dropbox.

• Submit your Assignment in a timely manner.

• Do not hesitate to ask for assistance should you need it.
