Ethical Issues in Employment Law Name Course Instructor Date Ethical Issues in Employment Law The employment or labor law in the United States covers a variety of issues that aim at ensuring orderly working place. Worker’s rights serves as a notable concern covered in employment law. Under the worker’s rights section there is a law that requires employees receive training in a language that they understand. Covered under the Occupation Safety and Health Administration the law requires that employees are accorded training in a language that they understand provides an organization with a sense of stability. Where an organization fails to provide effective training employees become unsure of the organization’s expectations and the confusion may lead to inefficient performance. Misunderstandings thus result from the fact that employees remain unaware about the requirements (Michaels 2010). As a result of confusion frustration is evidenced leading to conflict between employees and the management. References Michaels D. (2010 April 28). OSHA Training Standards Policy Statement.

In a well-written paper, relate your professional or personal experience in the business world as an employee or employer and an ethical issue you confronted that falls within the realm of employment law. For example, you could write about your experience working long hours as a minor in violation of federal wage and hour laws. If you have not personally or professionally confronted an issue, consider an issue that could arise within the realm of employment law and describe it. Be sure that your focus is twofold: first, on an area of employment law and second, on a potential ethical issue within that area of law. Address the following in your paper: Identify and clearly define the relevant law, either defining a legal doctrine, provisions of a law, or elements of a specific cause of action. Apply facts from your situation to the applicable law, doctrine or cause of action studied. Clearly summarize lessons learned from the week as they apply to your fact pattern and make links to the readings and/or module. Include new thoughts or ideas based on the module information. This is your reflection/insight which logically would flow from each information point presented. Identify any related ethical issues. Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length with 2 in text citations.
