federal employment and worker protection laws

There are numerous state and federal employment and worker protection laws that govern the employment relationship and are essential for all organizations to understand and follow. This project will give you the opportunity to study the law, research recent cases to understand the application of the law, write a paper, and make a professional Power Point presentation on the basics of the law and the key things employers need to know and do to be legally compliant. The following list includes the statutes that you can use for the term paper:

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

– Race Discrimination

-Gender Discrimination

-National Origin Discrimination
