Write a 2-3 page summary of your research into laws that have impacted today’s workplace. Introduction Employment law, or labor law, governs the interactions and duties
between employees and employers. The purpose of these laws is to ensure
that workers are safe and treated fairly. The laws also serve to protect
employers’ interests as well. Employment laws are primarily based on
both federal and state constitutions and legislation.Understanding employment law is extremely important for HR
practitioners, all members of management, and employees as well.
Employees should understand their rights in the workplace to ensure they
are treated fairly; employers need to understand and abide by
employment law guidelines to ensure that they promote a safe and fair
workplace and to avoid employment-related legal action that can be very
costly to the organization.HR practitioners need to ensure the company operates within legal
guidelines by monitoring programs and practices, and this assessment
will help to strengthen your understanding of these topics.A law cannot ensure that a behavior will change. Laws and behaviors
are not fixed, and in order to study them it is necessary to put them in
perspective. This assessment considers law in relation to workplace
behaviors and shifts in demographics. Specifically, it looks at the
foundation of U.S. law and the related legislation enacted to address
the rights of U.S. citizens as they engage in workplace contracts and
activities.Events and inventions demanded workers develop different skill sets.
As those forces of change arose, public pressure, under the banner of
equal opportunity, influenced the workplace and the courts. In an
agrarian society, one works on the land. In an industrialized society,
one works in a union with an enterprise. In a service society, one works
in relationship with other people.As you look to the global workplace, you see participants in the
labor contract at different stages of managing relationships. The U.S.
laws of the eighteenth century were written in response to the laws of
England’s domination. U.S. laws of the twenty-first century are written
in direct response to the electorate of today—diverse in race, religion,
age, gender, disability, marital status, and sexual orientation.As you study the statistics, keep the legislative timeline in mind.
Observe the direct relationship between the legislative process and the
human factor. Test your intuitions in your own workplace and community.
Do not hesitate to challenge the numbers. Look at the trends in the
United States and place them in the context of a global labor pool and a
global marketplace. Preparation To prepare for this assessment, use the Capella library and the
Internet to research employment law, both from a historical perspective
and in the present day. Focus your research on laws that have impacted
today’s workplace.Then, write a 2–3 page summary of your research into employment law. Complete the following:vSummarize two of the laws that you feel have the greatest impact
