Although some evidence existed that there were higher levels of acceptance of misconduct in rural or regional correctional centres, away from the central locus of control of the DCS head Office in Brisbane city, the mixed gender of inmates in these centres as opposed to the city-based centres may have also influenced the results. The court observed that.

If a position is not currently available, the Department must fill the next available position with Edwards. The warden herself testified that Edwards’s sex was not correctionns obstacle to his fulfilling these duties.

Only then may the warden fill the position by selective certification. The evidence reflects that the issue of Edwards’s position correctione the promotion register did not surface until after Edwards initiated legal proceedings challenging the Department’s 51f.

The remaining issue for the court is appropriate relief for Edwards. However, only one of the two shift commander positions was immediately filled because only one correcyions woman applied. The Department had a clearly established policy of appointing only women as shift commanders at Tutwiler, and Edwards was specifically told that because of the policy he could not be promoted to such position.

The court must therefore determine whether male employees like Edwards are unable to perform the duties essential to the normal operation of the job.

Texas Department of Community Affairs v. When using this register, the Department is not limited to the top candidates and may choose any person from the register.

Under other circumstances, the court would have to consider whether or how the Department may or must meet these interests. At the time the Department denied Edwards the promotion, the sole reason stated and relied on by the Department was discriminatory. The evidence is that Edwards efficiently and satisfactorily performed the duties of shift commander at Tutwiler while serving on an acting basis. This involves patroling the prison to monitor the officers and occasionally relieving them temporarily while they take breaks.


Where, as here, there is direct evidence that an employer has intentionally denied an employee a position because of the employee’s sex, an employer may still prevail by establishing either of the following affirmative defenses: Copyright Disclaimer This thesis is protected by copyright. The findings of the three studies contribute significantly to the field of penology and criminology, not only because they present a typology of non-custodial corrextions behaviours for the first time, but also because they identify a number of important processes and factors involved in the interaction between non-custodial staff and inmates.

What stands out most about the Department’s contention here that femaleness is a bfoq for the position of shift commander at Tutwiler is that Edwards held this position for nearly a year without any apparent difficulty. Here, the evidence is that there are a limited number of shift commander positions at Tutwiler. That summer, the Department filled one of the shift commander positions through the process of selective certification from the “promotion” register, which ranks currently employed persons according to their ability and qualifications.

For these reasons as well, the Cirrections has not shown that Regulation calls for selective certification to fill the position of shift commander. The challenge therefore is for the findings of this research to be implemented into practical changes that reduce the likelihood of entrapment of non-custodial staff, that decrease the abuse of power that staff have over correctioons, that recognises the adaptation that inmates must make to survive in a de-humanising environment, and that increases the ethical management of prisons.

Subsequently, the second research question asked was: First, as already stated, the mere enactment and existence of a discriminatory regulation does not create a bfoq defense.

All Tutwiler employees agreed that in an emergency it would be appropriate for a male officer to search or subdue a female inmate.

According to the regulation, the position must meet certain criteria, including involving: Furthermore, in light of Edwards’s exemplary record and immediate experience as acting shift commander, this court is firmly convinced that, without the Department’s discriminatory policy, he would have been selected to fill one of the positions.

Therefore, a framework of explanation was developed from Ekblom and Tilley’s Conjunction of Criminal Opportunity model, incorporating components of Tittle’s balance of control theory and Tsang’s notion of moral rationalisation. How did these relationships, whether abusive or not, develop?

A plaintiff may establish a claim of impermissible intentional disparate treatment under Title VII by either circumstantial or direct evidence. The court will require that the Department pay Edwards backpay determined according to established legal principles. See note 2, supra; Hayes, F. In Januaryan inexperienced young psychologist was jailed in Queensland for perjuring herself1 about the sexual relationships she was having with male inmates in a Queensland prison.

Since this claim may be brought against the Department officials only in their official capacities, Clanton v. Equally, inmates, in their attempt to gain some control over their environment may allow staff to abuse their positions for fear of retribution or for favours.

Georgia Highway Express, Inc. What key factors in a correctional environment initiate misconduct, and, once facilitated, permit its continuance? Supreme Court considered whether maleness was a bfoq for correctional officer positions in Alabama’s prisons for male inmates. He too did not have to perform searches of female inmates.

Can the factors, once identified, be applied to a model corections explanation that correctiond that crime occurs with the conjunction of a number of situational opportunities and a well-resourced offender? Initial boundary crossings appear to be done more often than not in good faith, but represent the ‘soft capture’ of professional staff attempting to juggle the dual role of compassionate corrwctions with the demands of the secure good order of the prison.

The court observed that This might be a Burdine type case if, for example, the Hospital had dismissed Hayes claiming she was “inefficient,” but Hayes had asserted that the real reason for her dismissal was her pregnancy.
