FEDERAL LAWS THAT PROTECT WORKERS (PowerPoint presentation due this week)

Identify and describe Four (4) Equal Employment Opportunity Laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, Sexual Harassment, etc. or laws that have been passed to protect workers such as OSHA.

The presentation needs to consist of a cover sheet, introduction, a minimum of 4 pages for each law, conclusion and a list of References.

For each law:

  • Provide background and history on why the Law was passed and who it protects.
  • The date the law was passed and the law's major components (use a source and cite the source - show that you understand the tenets of the law ‚Äď you may need to quote part of the law). Please make sure that the major parts of the law are included.
  • Your own observations on the law and whether it works or not? Do you know of anyone who may have been helped by the law?
  • For each law find a court case that has been brought against a company, individual, business (name the company and date of the case) and how the court decided the case. Describe the court case along with the court's decision and if it affected the law.

Since this is a PowerPoint presentation please make SURE the presentation IS concise and to the point with bullets. But remember that substantiate data is still needed, especially in regards the background and contents of the law.

The EEOC is responsible for enforcing federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination. EEOC 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. Court cases on these issues are going on daily.

The EEOC and your textbook can be your primary research tool along with the Library, business journals and business magazines, and accredited newspapers. All have covered the history of the laws as well as lawsuits brought by employees.

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 on the flow and contents of the data. The presentation should be at least four pages per law. Your presentation will be evaluated based on your level of insight, your demonstrated understanding of course concepts and the quality of your summaries.

Please remember to use the APA format and provide in-text citations for all references.
