Choose a currently controversial employment law issue. “Controversial” in this s

Choose a currently controversial employment law issue. “Controversial” in this sense means a law or policy that lacks consensus in the employment world regarding overall propriety, application, cost, liability, etc. Many examples are discussed in the lesson material for this course, but below are a few simple ones. You are not limited to this list, and may choose another issue that satisfies the “controversial” standard if you prefer:
How should employers address the requirement to subsidize employee health insurance, as the Affordable Care Act requires?
Should employers be permitted to refuse coverage for contraception in health insurance provisions for religious reasons?
Should sexual orientation and/or gender identity be explicitly added to the list of federally protected classes?
Should addictions, obesity, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) be classified as disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act? (you would choose one condition)
Should affirmative action be mandatory standard practice in hiring to avoid discrimination, inadvertent or otherwise?
Should employers’ good faith reasons for criminal and credit checks trump any issues of disparate impact discrimination?
Should employers be permitted to require access to and control over employees’ social media accounts as a prerequisite of employment?
Should ‘right to work’ laws be expanded or eliminated?
Absent a subpoena, should employers be required to show that they are not engaged in gender-based pay discrimination?
Should the United States follow the lead of other industrialized nations and amend the Family and Medical Leave Act to provide for paid leave?
After you’ve chosen an issue…
1. Research four (4) peer-reviewed academic legal articles discussing the different sides of your issue, and review them in a paper. You may briefly summarize each of the articles, but be sure to focus on your assessment of any particularly strong or weak arguments on either side of the issue. Each article review should be ~250 words. Remember, the articles should be peer-reviewed academic articles; our APUS library will be your best resource for this. If you’re not sure what peer-reviewed articles are, or how to find them, our library can assist with this.
2. Research four (4) actual legal cases dealing with the issue you selected. Once you identify four cases, report on: 1) Who were the parties to the lawsuit? How were they related? 2) What was the nature of the issue in the suit? How is it related to your issue? 3) How was the issue decided, and why? 4) What precedent (if any) did the case set for future litigation? and 5) Did the case leave any questions unanswered with respect to the issue at hand? Each case report should be ~250 words. Case summaries and opinions can be found in our library, and elsewhere online at no cost. Although you may choose any cases you like which are relevant to your issue, it would be prudent to choose cases that are as recent as possible, and of a fairly consequential nature. For this reason, you should choose cases litigated in the federal court system, unless there is a compelling reason for an alternative.

Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
Navigate to the threaded discussion and respond to the following prompt:
According to Proverbs 20:11 (NIV), “even small children are known by their actions.” But just because they are known by their actions does it necessarily follow that they should be punished in similar ways as an adult? Under what circumstances should the juvenile court waive a child less than 16 years old and charged with murder into adult court? Is it solely based on age? What other factors should be considered? In your mind, which is the most important factor and why?
Defend your answer and be substantive in your response. It is expected that this initial posting be a minimum of one paragraph long.
A paragraph consists of a group of at least five sentences and is approximately a half a page long. In order for a paragraph to be effective, it must begin with a topic sentence, have sentences that support the main idea of that paragraph, and maintain a consistent flow.

Introduction
Ethics is the ability to determine right from wrong and to modify behavior
based on this determination. Ethics may pertain strictly to morality and how
truth is determined, or it may extend to choosing a course of action based on
morality, challenging a person’s belief system, or analyzing how morality
applies to the outcome of different situations. Ethical behavior may occur in
relation to one individual or within the context of society as a whole. The
study of ethics evolved based on the theories of Greek philosophers, such as
Socrates and Aristotle, who considered the roles of self-knowledge, virtue,
happiness, and moderation, for example, in relation to societal behavior. In
this topic, you will learn about the principles of ethics, and how ethics
relates to religion, values, and laws within society. At the end of the topic,
you will see how ethics transcend a wide variety of situations and influence
patterns of behavior within society. Apply this understanding of ethical value
systems to your chosen society.
Note: Please review the topic’s section of
the Lesson Guide prior to proceeding.

Objective: Appraise the commerce, citizen rules and responsibilities, and allies

Objective:
Appraise the commerce, citizen rules and responsibilities, and
allies/enemies in your chosen society.
Introduction
The concept of global citizenship describes the ability of an individual within
society to consider themselves a member of a global network of people, and not
just within a society. The theory of global citizenship stems from the Greek
philosopher Socrates, who stated that an individual is a citizen of the world,
not just of society. The Declaration of Human Rights, established by the UN
General Assembly in 1948, took this theory one step further, stating that all
individuals have dignity and rights, as well as the ability to reason.
According to this declaration, the ultimate goal of individuals in society is
to foster a spirit of oneness and kinship with others in the society. The
Declaration of Independence outlined global citizenship as all men being
created equal and having the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness. In this topic, you will explore the theory of global citizenship,
and form your own definition of what it means to be a global citizen. You will
also learn about the role of commerce, citizen rules and responsibilities, and
allies and enemies within a society, and what these issues mean within in the
framework of becoming a global citizen. In addition, you will be invited to
consider the difference between being a global citizen versus being a
globally-oriented citizen. At the end of the topic, you may find yourself considering
your own role in society differently, and reconstructing your view of all
individuals within a society. Apply this understanding of global citizenship to
your chosen society.
