LA6570 LP1 Seminar Assessment
(Part 1)
1. What substantive right do you think is most important to employees? Why?
Answer: Discrimination
Still today, employees are being discriminated against in the workplace, such
actions include; gender, race, disabilities, and age has been an issue for myself. I
am in my 50’s and have been applying for several jobs. There have been
employers where I know they used my age against me. However, proving age
discrimination is difficult to do. I had not even thought about “age”
discrimination in the workplace until recently because I have not been employed
during my time in school. Now that I am about to graduate and have entered into
my 50’s, it has been quite apparent that age discrimination in fact, does exist!
2. List two Congressional acts (laws) that provided protection for employees.
Answer:
I. Fair Labor Standards Act is where employers must pay employees a
minimum wage rate set by the government. Some states will set their own
minimum wage rate, but it must be higher than the rate set by the
government.
II. Occupational Safety and Health Act ensures that employers minimize
dangers in the workplace for employees.
3. What is ‘at will’ employment?
Answer:
Employers can terminate their employees for any reason and at any time, unless it
is violation of a federal or state law, such as a federal law of race discrimination.
The employer does not need “just cause”, nor do they have to give the employee
any warning of termination.

4. What is contract employment?
Answer:
Contract employment is where a company may hire an individual for a specified
period of time and for a predetermined rate of money. The company would not be
responsible for such things as; taxes, social security, worker’s compensation, and
various other benefits that employees of the company would receive.
The employer must issue the contracted employee a 1099 tax form by a deadline
in accordance of the Internal Revenue Service.
5. Does your state subscribe to any of the Public Policy Exceptions? If so, what
is your state and which exceptions?
Answer:
The State of Florida does not subscribe to any Public Policy Exceptions. Florida
is an “at will” state and can terminate, discipline, denote, or promote an employee
for any reason or for no reason and at any time. However, they can not terminate
an employee if it is a violation of a state or federal employment law.
(Part 2)
1. What two items are required when you email me and request an extension?
How many days are 'reasonable' for an extension?
Answer:
There must be a legitimate reason for extension stated in the email and a
reasonable due date listed in the email for when the assignment will be submitted.
Three days beyond the due date is considered a reasonable extension.
2. What is the best practice, when submitting an assignment to the dropbox, to
avoid a high TII score (i.e. what documents do you submit and how do you
submit them)?
Answer:
Paraphrase citations, abbreviate, or shorten them, but make sure they are still
APA in-text citations.
Insert an individual experience or opinion instead of using someone else’s written
work. Your individual experience or opinion would generally not be supported
by any other reference.
