Delivery Quik Inc. delivers packages to small retail stores from a central distribution point in a major metropolitan area. Drivers both load and unload their packages, some of which weigh close to 100 pounds. Although equipment helps the drivers in their tasks, there is still considerable lifting necessary. Delivery Quik has a policy that drivers must stand at least 6 feet tall and weigh no less than 180 pounds. All drivers must retire at age 45 and have at least a high school education. Does the height, weight, age, and education policy discriminate illegally?
How would you change the policy?
If your customers prefer male drivers, does their preference mean that the company can hire only males as drivers?
