How legislation and codes of practice relating to equality diversity and discrimination apply to work role?
Some people consider these requirements to enforce "positive discrimination" and think they do more harm than good. Others consider them as way of helping the disadvantaged an…d disprivileged get a head start. The issue is highly controversial.
When crossing over occurs, (the homologous pairs swap parts of each other), it results in the four haploid daughter cells being unique, because crossing over doesn't happen at… the same place every time, and the swapped areas are different from each other. Also, independent assortment occurs because the chromosomes can line up in different orders in metaphase I, so each time it will be different, increasing genetic diversity.
Since no US employment law requires appearance diversity (race, sex) in any employer's workforce, it would be illegal to give appearance any weight in hiring or assignment.

Joseph Smith, who founded the Mormons, claimed to be a prophet who received revelations from God. Naturally, leaders of other faiths, who did not speak with God, felt threaten…ed by his claims, especially when significant portions of their congregations left to join the Mormons. Mormon doctrine was appealing to many because it seemed logical, and it came with additional scriptures that shed light on otherwise confusing Biblical scriptures. The idea of new scriptures was received as a threat by religions that taught God's words were found exclusively in the Bible. Persecution against Mormons intensified as new revelations lead to their practicing polygamy, which was abhorrent to many. In response to the persecution, the Mormons formed a militia, which many feared they would use for purposes other than self-defense. Joseph Smith was killed while in prison under dubious charges. The Mormons eventually fled the United States in search of religious freedom.

There are several religions that have what might be called acult-like aura or appearance because they teach things that arequite different from the 'mainstream' religions. The…re is no valuejudgement in this statement. The Jehovah's Witnesses is one of afew such religions including the Mormon church, the UnificationChurch, and others. There is also no presumption that 'mainstream'is right; mainstream 'Christendom' in the general sense of westernculture is to a great degree a large, murky, non-unified andsometimes corrupt entity. To the credit of the Jehovah's Witnesses, much of the followingwill be seen by them as distinctive and authentic, and the veryreasons that they are scorned by some. Holding true to unpopularbeliefs can be a courageous thing. Jehovah's Witnesses have, on a few occasions, made predictions ofthe end of the world, and the predictions did not turn out asexpected. The Witnesses then found interpretations of theirpredictions that fit with what was observed. Be clear that thisanswer has nothing to do with the truth or untruth of the teachingsof the Jehovah's Witnesses. The question is asking about sourcesof prejudice . These predictions did not enhance the reputationof the group among members of other faiths. There is also the matter of the nature of the person of JesusChrist. Jehovah's Witnesses do not teach or believe that Christ isby nature God. He is in fact the very same person as Michael theArchangel. Jesus is one of many 'sons' of God who are sons of Godin the same sense that he (Jesus) is a son. They also teach thatthe Jesus who died on the cross is dead, forever dead. The logic isthat a continuing life for Jesus Christ would be the same asundoing or taking back Christ's sacrifice. Jehovah created Jesusanew and it is this re-erected Jesus who appeared at theresurrection. Again, the truth or falsity of these teachings is notin dispute here; these are some of the things that mainstreamgroups find difficult to accept as even marginally true. Jehovah's Witnesses also seem to hold in contempt some of thethings that are ordinary parts of western culture, like theenjoyment of holidays including Christmas, and the use of bloodtransfusions in medical emergencies. They also believe that all of the people who will ever attainheaven have already done so; the 144,000 have already lived anddied. These individuals live with Jehovah in the nonphysical,spiritual realms. All other faithful will enjoy the physical earthforever. More correctly, it will not be the faithful who will continue to live as individual consciousnesses from thisearthly life to the next, but will be 're-erections', orre-creations of the individuals who lived on earth and who died,once and for ever. There have been publications by the Watch Tower Bible andTract Society that have claimed outright that they containteachings that are so accurate and complete that they could in factbe used in place of the bible, with no loss of truth or value atall. Again, whether or not these publications are still available,or whether or not the concept is true, is not at issue. These aresome of the things that have brought about doubt, suspicion andeven scorn on the part of others. Answer by Daniel Metz, one of Jehovah's Witnesses The answer above is quite accurate. We are not liked bymany for the reasons given above. We are disliked because we don'tbelieve or act the way the majority of people do in certain areaswhere we believe that Bible indicates that we should follow anothercourse. People like those who share their beliefs and customs, andare not comfortable with those who have different one, andespecially with those who change their beliefs and customs fromthose of the majority. As Jesus said: (John 15:18, 19) . . .If the world hates YOU, YOU know that it hashated me before it hated YOU. 19 If YOU were part of the world, theworld would be fond of what is its own. Now because YOU are no partof the world, but I have chosen YOU out of the world, on thisaccount the world hates YOU." I would however like to correct a few inaccuracies in the previousanswer. Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus was put to death in theflesh and was resurrected as a spirit. Jesus sacrificed his humanbody and God resurrected him with a spirit body. Someone may viewthis a a re-creation, but we never use this term. How Jehovah putthe same personality in the spirit body as the one that was in thehuman body, we do not know, nor do we speculate about this, but wedo not believe in an immortal soul that continues the personalityof a person after the death of his human body. We believe that itis not the atoms of our physical body that determine ourpersonality, since these are completely changed about every 7years. It is the personality in our heart and mind that makes usindividuals, and we believe that when God puts this personality ina new physical or new spirit body, the same person has come back tolife. We also do not believe that all the 144 000 have already lived anddied. Among us are about 11 800 who feel they have the heavenlycalling to be part of the 144 000. The rest of us have the hope ofliving forever on a paradise earth, either through a resurrection,if we die before the new world comes, or by surviving Armageddon,as part of the "great crowd", who we believe will survive withoutdying into the new world. As for how we view the publications of the Watch Tower Society ofPennsylvania, we Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that they areinspired. Critics of our faith try to claim the opposite by quotingvery old passages from our publications or quoting directors of theSociety in certain very old court cases, thinking that this willundermine our confidence in what we believe. However it doesn't,because our publications from the beginning of our modern-dayhistory have said that they are not infallible or inspired, and wedon't believe that any of Jehovah's Witnesses is infallible orinspired, whether he is a director of the Society or not. What we believe is that the explanations of the Scriptures given inthe Society's publications are more logical and motivating thanthose of other churches. We are impressed by what we have read inthe publications of the Watch Tower Society. We have developedfaith that Jehovah God and Jesus are using only Jehovah's Witnessesto spread the true message of salvation and of God's Kingdom, andhave, with the help of God's holy spirit, created a worldwidebrotherhood that is united in belief, united in message, united inlove for each other, and not divided by nationalism or racism. Ourallegiance is to God's kingdom, and not to any human government,and we are awaiting with eagerness the time when God's will will bedone as in heaven, also upon earth. We also believe that the corrections of details of our beliefs thathave occurred over the years represent the "food at the propertime" promised by Jesus in Matthew 24:45, and given to us through a"faithful and discreet slave" class, the group of men who preparethe literature that touches our hearts so much. We believe that itis God who guides his people to understand the meaning of difficultparts of Scripture, especially prophecies of the future. The fact that our publications have predicted the end of thissystem of things to come by certain dates, which did not come true,does not weaken our faith that God is using us. On the contrary, itshows that we are eager to see the new world come, while otherchurches get deeply involved in politics, trying to make this worldconform to their beliefs, and building as comfortable a life aspossible in this world, when Jesus clearly taught that his disciplewould be "no part of this world" (John 15:19). The fact that Jehovah allowed us to make predictions of years forthe end that did not come true has helped to refine us. Those whodid not truly love God but were only interested in a reward fromhim left us. Those who stayed with us are, I believe, the kind ofpersons that God is preparing to live in a world ruled by oneheavenly government in the hands of Jesus Christ. Regards, Daniel Metz (What is written below is not from me) ****** As a former JW with 23+ years service incl regular pioneer, elderetc.., I cannot say that JWs, in this day and age, are regulartargets or victims of prejudice and discrimination. The violenceand intolerance shown against the WT Org of the 30's, 40's &possibly the 50's in Canada & the US are long gone. In fact, Iwould venture to say that JW's today are mostly viewed as amainstream religion even though they remain somewhat insular andisolationists in terms of associating with non-JWs. If anything, I would suggest that most people are annoyed by theirincessant door-to-door work, preaching their WT-based theology,including the overstating of 'end times' due to arrive "soon". And,unlike the days of Judge Rutherford (WT's 2nd president), today'sJW message has toned down considerably. No JW is being 'tar &feathered' these days or 'run out of town" going door to door. Another source of derision is their belief that only active JWswill survive the oft-preached 'end of the world', or Armageddon,meaning that all non-JW's will be destroyed by God at that time,including women and children. That this belief is arbitrary andbased on selective interpretation of Scriptures does not resonateamong the 'true believers'. Closely tied to this is their belief that only they possess the"truth" and that, out of all the religions and belief systems inthe entire world, only their WT Org is "spirit-directed',exclusively. All other religious groups are judged to be part ofthe harlot, Babylon the Great. (Rev 14) Again this is an arbitrary,subjective and self-serving interpretation of Scripture, typical toWT theology. Outside of the factors noted above, JW's enjoy peace, especially inthe Americas, Europe etc... wherever they live and are viewed, ingeneral, as good neighbors, good workers, honest in their dealingswith others. I think that most people have come to terms with JWsnot saluting the flag, not serving in the military, not voting, notcelebrating Christmas, Easter and so forth. In the eyes of mostpeople, these oddities are of no concern.
