At her job, Briana was frequently subjected to racial slurs, misbehavior, and threats from her co-workers.

Unable to tolerate the hostile environment, Briana quit her job. Which of the following holds true in this scenario? A) Briana has a cause of action for racial harassment under 42 U.S.C. section 1983.
B) Briana does not have a cause of action for racial harassment, as she resigned at her own will.
C) Briana has a cause of action for racial harassment under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as there is evidence that she was harassed.
D) Briana does not have a cause of action for racial harassment, as the actions of her co-workers were not pervasive or severe.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

C) Briana has a cause of action for racial harassment under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as there is evidence that she was harassed.

Explanation:

It is noteworthy that under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 it directly prohibits discrimination in public places. Thus, we could rightly say that Briana's frequent subjection to racial slurs, misbehavior, and threats from her co-workers constitutes "discrimination in public places".

Hence, she has enough evidence to take legal action against Tropical Coast Airlines.

a. Straight-line method for 2020 $enter a dollar amount.
b. Activity method (units of output) for 2020 $enter a dollar amount.
c. Activity method (working hours) for 2020 $enter a dollar amount.
d. Sum-of-the-years'-digits method for 2022 $enter a dollar amount (e) Double-declining-balance method for 2021

Answers

Answer:

a.  Straight line method.

Depreciation per annum = ($ 256,800 - $12,000 ) / 8 = $ 30,600.

Depreciation for 2020 = $ 30,600 * ( 3 /12 ) = $ 7,650.

b. Units of output

Depreciation per unit = ( $ 256,800 - $ 12,000 ) / 48,000 = $ 5.1

Depreciation for 2020 = 1,000 * $ 5.1 = $ 5,100.

c. Working hours.

Depreciation per hours = ( $ 256,800 - $ 12,000 ) / 20,400 = $ 12

Depreciation for 2020 = 600 * $ 12 = $ 7,200.

D. Sum of digits method

Sum of years = 8 ( 8 +1 ) / 2 = 36.

Year - 1 used ( 3 / 12 = 0.25)

Year-2 used ( 12 / 12 = 1 )

Remaining ( 8 - 1 - 0.25 = 6.75)

Depreciation for 2022 = ($ 256,800 - $ 12,000 ) * ( 6.75 / 36 )

Depreciation for 2022 = $ 45,900.

e. Double declining balance

Depreciation rate = 200 / 8 = 25 %.

Depreciation for 2020 = $256,800 * 25 % * (3 /12)

Depreciation for 2020 = $16,050.  

Depreciation for 2021 = ( $256,800 - $ 16,050) * 25%

Depreciation for 2021 = $60,188.

Assuming the cost of direct materials used is $1,500,000, compute the total manufacturing costs using the information below.

Answers

Answer:

$2,960,000

Explanation:

Raw Material Used in production:

= Raw Material Inventory Beginning + Purchases of Raw Material - Raw Material Inventory Ending

= $30,000 + $1,500,000 - $60,000

= $1,470,000

Total Manufacturing Cost:

= Raw Material Used in production + Direct Labor + Manufacturing Overhead applied to Work in process

= $1,470,000 + $690,000 + (225,000 + 75,000 + 500,000)

= $1,470,000 + $690,000 + $800,000

= $2,960,000

How much cash was provided by operating activities during the year

Answers

Answer:

$1,454,000

Explanation:

Calculation to determine How much cash was provided by operating activities during the year

Using this formula

Operating activities=Net income+Depreciation+ Increased in Accounts receivable -Increased in inventories + Decreased in Prepaid expenses - Decreased in accounts payable

Let plug in the formula

Operating activities=$1251000 + $236000 -$66000 - $44000 +$6000 - $61000

Operating activities=$1,454,000

Therefore the amount of cash was provided by operating activities during the year is $1,454,000

Therefore the net value of a long straddle position will be the amount of $1.15

Fred Stone is an employee of Henrock Company. During the first part of the year, Stone earned $4,340 while working in State Q. For the remainder of the year, the company transferred him to State S where he earned $27,000. Henrock Company's tax rate in State Q is 4.6%, and in State S, 4.0% on the first $7,000. If reciprocal arrangements exist between the two states, determine the SUTA tax that the company paid on Stone's earnings in State S.

The reciprocal arrangement exempts the tax payer from his former country of work. H e will be taxed in the new country of work at the applicable rate

SUTA ceiling earning = $7000

SUTA rate = 4.0%

SUTA = $280
