Week 3 Assignment

Application: Reflection—Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Laws

Employee training is a major function of human resources, and it is
vital that leaders train staff adequately, efficiently, and in
accordance with the local, state, and/or federal laws governing the
workplace. Adhering to employment laws and ethical codes protects an
organization from lawsuits and the negative implications of increased
insurance premiums, settlement judgments, and legal fees. Far worse,
however, is a loss in public trust, increased scrutiny by elected
officials, and loss of funding

For this Assignment, review this week’s Resources. Review Chapter 3 of Human Resources Management for Public and Nonprofit Organizations.
Focus on the necessity of following legal and ethical codes related to
human resources management. Review the article by Rush. Identify a
government or non-profit organization from the news or with which you
are familiar and reflect about the possible violations of federal equal
employment opportunity laws.

The Assignment:

Complete a reflection paper on the readings for this week on the
issue of Federal equal employment opportunity laws. This reflection is
more than descriptive summaries of the readings or how one is feeling
about a set of readings.

Describe in detail and as objectively as possible the readings for the week and consider the following:

  • What is the nature of the significance of this issue to you as a
    government or non-profit administrator and why? That is, why is it
    important to know and understand Federal equal employment opportunity
    laws? Consider your feelings, your values, and your knowledge and
    experience, and further explicate the concepts in the readings and what
    they mean to you. How do you feel about it?

If you are a non U.S. student, explain how equal opportunity laws are different in your home country.

Be sure to support your Assignment with specific references to
the resources and other current literature in the Walden Library. Use
at least three scholarly sources from the library that were published
within the past five years to support your paper.

Your Assignment must demonstrate both breadth and depth of knowledge
and critical thinking appropriate to graduate-level scholarship. It
must follow APA Publication Manual guidelines and be free of
typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors. The Assignment should
be 3–4 pages in length (double-spaced), not including the title page,
abstract, and references.
