Unit 2 powerpoint presentation: four (4) federal laws that protect



Our first assignment is to research Four (4) Federal laws that mandate equality, safety, and health in the workplace. Select the Federal laws from the list itemized below. The assignment is due in Unit Two. The information below is a ‘heads up’ to give you sufficient time to research this assignment.

The PowerPoint presentation consists of a cover sheet, introduction, a minimum of four pages for each law, conclusion, and a list of References in APA format. Follow the directions below very carefully.

For each law, you need to include sheets for the following four questions:

1. History/Background.: Why was the Law passed? What was going on in the workplace that required the law to be enacted to protect employees?

2. Components of the law: Research the law and summarize in your words (with in-text citations of the academic sources used) the major elements of the law. Do not cut and paste.

3. Observations on the law. Research the law’s effectiveness? Do you feel it is working or not working and why?

4. Lawsuit: Research a lawsuit that concerned the law you are reviewing. Include the date of the lawsuit, the plaintiffs, defendants, reason the plaintiff/s went to court, and the outcome of the case. It is important that in reading this summary a person understands why the lawsuit was initiated and who won the case.

Please make SURE the presentation IS concise and to the point with bullets. But remember that substantiate data is still needed, especially in regards to the background, contents of the law and the court cases.

The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination and keeps an extensive archive of court cases affecting all aspects of violations from age discrimination, pregnancy, lack of handicap accessibility, sexual harassment, discrimination based on gender, race, religion, etc. Find laws that you feel are of interest to you. Court cases on these issues are going on daily.

The EEOC can be your primary research tool along with the Library, business journals, magazines, and accredited newspapers.

Please use Microsoft PowerPoint and highlight the major points with bullets. This can be a very creative assignment, so you need to use your imagination on the information included. Please note you are not being graded on your PowerPoint expertise but the flow and contents of the data. A minimum of four pages per law is required.

Your presentation will be evaluated based on your level of insight, your demonstrated understanding of course concepts and the quality of your summaries. APA format REQUIRED. Any information paraphrased needs an in-text citation with a reference for the source.
