Cardigan History

LS311-5: Examine agency and employment relationships

GEL 1.02: Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard English.

The Cardigan family has made a name for themselves in the
sweater industry whereby they have designed sweaters for a variety of
uses and for a wide target audience ranging from toddlers to business
professionals. Cassandra, whom everyone calls Cassie, is the CEO of
CARDWARE Inc., Camoni is the spokesperson for the sweater line, and
Candie models the lines in the professional sphere. They often use their
mother, Camille, as a business consultant for input about various new
ideas and marketing because she was the manager and agent of her son’s
glove company. Cora and Caley, Camille’s two youngest daughters from her
second failed marriage to Bo Jenkins, are co-office managers of their
headquarters located in Silkadonia.

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

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.

Using the above facts given, please label with headings and discuss the following in this order:


  • Did CARDWARE have genuine BFOQs (Bona Fide Occupational Job Qualifications) in its ad?
  • Do not forget to review the company’s slogan as given in the above facts.
  • Be sure to discuss Petunia’s point of view as well as CARDWARE’s position and defenses.
  • Use legal authority to support your position as well.


  • If Petunia brings a lawsuit based on negligence against CARDWARE and
    The Sporty One, will CARDWARE be responsible for Noah’s behavior? If
    so, under what theory?
  • 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?

Paper Submissions:

APA manuscript style dictates how your paper should appear
on the page. For more information on APA style, visit the following

American Psychological Association. (n.d.). Frequently Asked Questions About APA Style®. Retrieved June 10, 2016, from 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
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.
