Summarize the key elements in the case. What legal statute(s) apply to the case? (See the list at the beginning of Exercise 17 for the 6 major federal laws.) What issue(s) must the court decide in the case? If you were the judge, how would you rule? Did the employer discriminate unlawfully? Why or why not? Lia Lee, a Laotian-American, worked for Federal and State Bank for over three years as teller. She had always received outstanding performance reviews from her supervisors. Consequently, when a position became available at the customer service desk that handled customer inquiries and problems, Lia applied for the position. She did not get the promotion. The bank argued that she was not promoted because she did not have sufficient English skills to calm irate customers. Lia Lee filed a lawsuit alleging that Federal and State Bank had overlooked her for a promotion because of her accent.
