LAW 531 Agency and Employment Law (New Syllabus)


Product Description

Purpose of Assignment
Employment costs are arguably a business's biggest expense. Consider how employment law regulates concepts such as discrimination, injuries on the job, employee vs. independent contractor, wrongful discharge, and unionization, to name a few. As you research for this assignment, consider the decisions made in this area are more than business decisions - they can impact lives. How do we reconcile between negatively impacting employees while favorably impacting the bottom line?
