Discrimination in the work place
What is discrimination? Does it really exsist? I am implied to say yes. Discrimination is part of everyday life in America. There are many ways that an employer can discriminate against an employee. Patton-Fuller Community Hospital has been serving the community since 1975. https://ecampus.phoenix.edu/secure/aapd/CIST/VOP/Healthcare/PFCH/pfchHome.htm) Since the time the hospital opened the doors laws have not only changed, but they are being enforced.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects individuals against employment discrimination on the basis of sex as well as race, color, national origin, and religion. Title VII applies to employers with 15 or more employees, including state and local governments. It also applies to employment agencies and to labor organizations, as well as to the federal government. (http://www.eeoc.gov/types/sex.html)

Since Patton-Fuller Hospital has more than 15 employees it must follow the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Based on this act the hospital needs to respect employees with different r beliefs, such as Muslim. The Muslim religion has a holy month of ramadan (rämädän´, răm´´[pic]dän´) , in Islam, the ninth month of the Muslim year, du ring which all Muslims must fast during the daylight hours. Indulgence of any sort is forbidden during the fast. There are only a few who are exempt, e.g., soldiers, the sick, and the young. Because of the purely lunar calendar, Ramadan falls in different seasons. The final day of Ramadan, Id al-Fitr, is celebrated by a day of feasting. The first revelation of the Qur'an is commemorated in this month. (http://education.yahoo.com/reference/encyclopedia/entry/Ramadan)
