Zimpfer Vs Palm Beach County


Read the case “Zimpfer Vs Palm Beach County”. Also read the chapter on Equal Employment Opportunity with specific emphasis on Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the lecture supplements on Equal Employment Opportunity. Answer the following questions:

  1. Does the evidence indicate that Zimpfer has a prima facie case against the county considering the requirements for showing a prima facie evidence? Does the evidence conclusively prove that Zimpfer was a victim of age discrimination? Why or why not?
  2. Since Zimpfer relied on the I/O psychologist’s report very much, what are the deficiencies you observed in the report? In other words, if you were a lawyer for the county, how would you attack the report in terms of both content and credibility!
  3. If you were Zimpfer, what other additional evidence would you gather and/or produce to show that the county in fact discriminated against you on the basis of age?
  4. If you were the HR Manager for the county, what other additional evidence would you collect and/or introduce during the trial to show that the county did not discriminate against Zimpfer?
  5. Overall, what is your conclusion about the case? Did the country discriminate or not against Zimpfer? What short-term solution do you suggest to the county? What are some of the long-term strategies the county should adapt to prevent such claims in the future?

General Advice:

 In analyzing any case, please do not re-narrate the case for me. I have read the case. I am looking forward to what you would do and how you would do. You should integrate the materials discussed in the text, your own understanding of the material, and your application of the material to the specific case in question. The answer to the “Why” is more important than merely stating the “What”. Originality, creative thinking, and problem solving are the ones I attempt to grade.
