    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission vs Chicago Miniature Lamp Works.


    I need help answering questions pertaining to this case.

    1) Would an unbalanced workforce due to word-of-mouth recruiting alone ever constitute disparate treatment?

    2) Consider the court's response to the above question. Would your decision be different if it could be shown that, in a certain small, all-white firm, recruiting was done only using word of mouth and this effort resulted in only white applicants?

    3) How would you balance the advantages of word-of-mouth recruiting against the possibility of discrimination impact?
