    You Must Apply Online: Is This a Violation of Civil Rights?

    Do you feel that places who only take job applications Online is a Violation of Civil Rights?

    I feel this is a violation of equal employment opportunity due to the fact that not everyone has a computer at home to be able to apply.

    You can use a computer at the library, but even if that weren't possible, I'd say no still.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Most libraries limit the time you can spend on their computers and most of these online application process take longer than 30 mins and sometimes can be up to an hour or more.

    I feel all of these places should have a computer set up for you to fill out one on site. Some places do like Wal-Mart and K-Mart.

    The world is moving forward technologically, time to get on or get left.

    No, not unless you could somehow prove that the business only took online applications because they specifically wanted to discourage minorities and/or older people from applying. Traditionally, the courts have said that it's OK to discriminate if it's somehow related to the job itself (e.g. if you're casting Malcolm X in a movie, you don't have to give Asian females equal opportunity to get the role). I would think that the courts would view the application process in a similar way. If the business could show some sort of legitimate reason for only accepting online applications (e.g. it's more convenient), I don't think the civil rights claims would fly. And I think it would be pretty easy for them to demonstrate a legitimate reason.

    At first I was thinking no big deal but after going over it in my head I have to agree. If this is the ONLY way to apply and the job doesn't require you to have a computer to work form home yes this is not right or equal opportunity and could definitely be argued as such.

    Anyone can go to the unemployment office to fill out an application for free. They will even help you. Not to mention library's and cyber cafés.

    No this is not a violation of civil rights.

    You can choose whether or not to have access to the internet.

    You can't choose things like race, gender, and age.
