1. In the Hillsdale Savings Bank, a Menorah and a Christmas tree are displayed. Maria McDougal, a teller, brings a small nativity scene for display. The bank manager refuses to display it for fear of offending non-Christians. After Maria writes to the bank headquarters, she is terminated. How would you advise her to proceed?

The aim of law is to uphold common good. Common good is that attribute or feature of communities which are desirable and so have to be nurtured and kept intact. This can be done only by people in authority and hence the law is to upkeep the common good exercising certain statutes may boil down the law to certain tough standards and so becomes authoritative in the sense that everyone has to follow it irrespective of whether someone has harmed society or not. It cannot use discretionary powers hence; it is looked at with a certain perspective as being applicable to all concerned and especially to those whose aim is to harm people of common good. Statutes have been enacted to prohibit certain unhealthy practices creeping into society and setting wrong precedents in normal human relationship. The law steps in and punishes those who try to create wrong ideas of community good and so it is looked upon as the only tool that can bring to book wrong action.
Maria brought the display and was refused to display it, when she wrote to the headquarter and she was terminated. Now she should proceed like this, either she should write to somebody responsible for handling the human issues or she can go to some civil or district court.

...According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, employers are prohibited from inquiring about whether an employee has a disability or not (Disability Discrimination). Therefore, would review the employee’s personnel records to identify whether or not she openly disclosed having a disability. As Jennifer’s direct supervisor, it is imperative that due diligence is conducted to ensure that said employee does not have any form of disability that hinder her abilities to perform the job requirements. Additionally, it is important to ensure steps taken to correct inefficiencies are in accordance with Federal and State employment laws and regulations. Moreover, it is important to review employment laws prior to developing a corrective action plan. This will ensure that the process and procedures taken will be within the confines of the law. If the employee disclosed having a disability, then measures will be taken to ensure more time is given for said employee to develop the knowledge, skills, and attributes required to perform assigned duties. The stance on this scenario rules out the possibility of said employee having a disability and will address the steps required to correct inefficiencies with said employee’s performance. According to the scenario, several issues must be addressed in order to improve the employee’s inefficiencies. First step required would be to develop a performance evaluation checklist for all employees, in the event one does not exist.......

...discrimination. Redundancy Redundancy is a form of dismissal and is fair in most cases. If the reason you are selected for redundancy is unfair then you will have been unfairly dismissed. Summary dismissal You can be dismissed for ‘gross misconduct’ without your employer going through the normal disciplinary procedures. This can happen if, for example, you’re violent towards a colleague, customer or property. Your employer should always investigate the circumstances before making a dismissal, even in possible gross misconduct cases. A ‘statutory restriction’ You can be dismissed if continuing to employ you would break the law - eg if you’re a driver in a lorry firm and you lose your driving licence. It’s impossible to carry on employing you If it’s impossible to carry on employing you, it’s likely to be fair. For example, if a factory burns down and it’s no longer possible to employ anyone. A ‘substantial reason’ You may be dismissed fairly if, for example: • you unreasonably refuse to accept a company reorganisation that changes your employment terms • you’re sent to prison What to do if you're dismissed If you’re threatened with dismissal (or are dismissed) you can get help from a third party to solve the issue by mediation, conciliation and arbitration. You can also speak to your union representative if you’re a member of a trade union. Employment tribunals If you’ve been unable to solve a problem between you and your employer, you can normally go to......

...inform a motorist at the end of a traffic stop that they are free to go before seeking permission to search the motorist’s car (Wikipedia 2011). In the case, respondent Robert D. Robinette was stopped for speeding by Deputy Roger Newsome of the Montgomery County Sheriff Office, since he had no prior violation; the officer gave him a verbal warning and returned his driver’s license(Cornell University Law School 1996). Shortly After, the deputy asked Robinette, before he gets going whether he was carrying any illegal contraband, weapons, drug’s, or such things in his car. That’s when Robinette answered that he did not have any of those things in his car. Then the deputy asked him if he would let him search the car for such things and Robinette gave consent to a search of the car. At the same time Robinette, felt like he had to let the officer search the car because he did not know that he could have simply said no and been free to go. Robinette, along with many other citizens feel that they do not have a choice in denying a request by a police officer. They are not familiar with the laws and rights that they have, especially during a routine traffic stop. There was no probable cause that gave the officer reason to search the vehicle. In the search, Deputy Newsome found a small amount of marijuana and a tablet of ecstasy, that turned out to be methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) (Google Scholar 2011).Robinette was arrested and charged with knowing possession of a controlled......

Role of Law

...The Role of Law in Business and Society Vernon Padberg III LAW/421 December 23, 2014 Safiya Byars   Impact of Law on Businesses and Society In today’s world, the healthcare law is having an impact on virtually every person in the United States. In the beginning of 2014 those who are uninsured must purchase coverage either on their own, through an employer's plan, or through a health insurance exchange. However, if the individual chooses not to get coverage then that person will end up having to pay a tax penalty, but those that are insured will continue to enjoy key mandates of the law such as free preventive care and coverage of adult dependents up to age 26, but at the expense of higher out-of -pocket costs. Since the Federal preemption in the healthcare industry has grown considerably in the last 10 years, most notably the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare signed by President Barack Obama in 2010, there has been a sweeping change in the healthcare industry. This act preempts many of the state’s laws that have been used to regulate healthcare in the past (Tsai 2011). Furthermore, the relationship between insurance companies and patients is starting to change significantly since the law requires insurance companies to cover all applicants within new minimum standards thus offering the same rates regardless of pre-existing conditions or sex. Also additional reforms are aimed to reduce costs and improve healthcare......

Labour Law and Law Governing Markets

...European Social Law Essay “In Western European societies, the dissociation between labour law and the law governing markets, which resulted in the emancipation of the former [from the latter], has been of significant relevance” (Antoine Lyon Caen, translation from “Droit Communautaire du marché v.s. Europe sociale”) Discuss whether and to what extent the ECJ's judgements in Viking, Laval, and Rüffert make it difficult to uphold the division between labour law on the one hand and the law of the (internal) market on the other hand, which - according to Lyon Caen - has been characteristic of labour law in Western Europe so far. Dissociation between labour law and law governing markets Labour law emanicapted from law governing markets Is it difficult to uphold labour law? and law of internal market? Balance the two? Introduction Balance the application of the EU's free movement rules (in particular the right to work and provide services in another member state) with the maintenance of different national social systems How will these freedoms affect trade union rights such as the right to collective action and collective bargaining? For a long time there has been a tendancy to look upon the EC as a guarantor of labour and social rights (particularly by the UK) Globalisation poses threats to national protection of labour law. Creates pressure for race to the bottom. So, supranational action is needed to defeat this pressure (justification for...

...Starling’s Law of the Capillaries Starling’s law of the capillaries states that the movement of fluid between the capillaries and interstitial fluid is due to the net effect of all four of the pressures described. An equation can be used to calculate the NFP and determine the direction of the fluid movement. NFP = (BHP + IFCOP) – (BCOP + IFHP) (Equation 6) BHP and IFCOP promote the movement of fluid out of the capillaries or filtration. BCOP and IFHP promote the movement of fluid into the capillaries or reabsorption. If the pressures that promote filtration are greater than the pressures that promote reabsorption, the NFP will have a positive value. If the pressures that promote reabsorption are greater, the NFP will have a negative value. Under normal physiological conditions, the values of IFHP, BCOP, and IFCOP do not significantly vary from the arterial end of the capillaries to the venous end. Therefore, in most tissues, the rate of filtration and reabsorption is due to BHP. To demonstrate, assume the following pressures at the arterial end of a capillary network: BHP = 35 mmHg IFHP = 0 mmHg BCOP = 26 mmHg IFCOP = 1 mmHg NFP = (35 mmHg + 1 mmHg) – (26 mmHg + 0 mmHg) NFP = +10 mmHg Because the value of NFP is positive, filtration occurs at the arterial end of the capillary. Moving along the capillary, the BHP becomes lower as blood moves along the pressure gradient of the vascular system, but the other three pressures will not fluctuate. At about the......

...the first two laws of the Nuremberg Laws were enacted. The laws were a clear violation of the Jewish people's civil rights. Many of the laws imposed on the freedom of the Jewish people. These laws were enacted by a cold and cruel dictator by the name of Adolf Hitler. The Nuremberg laws were a very strict and immoral set of laws that discriminated against the Jewish people. Above all, the laws were offensive and demeaning. Adolf Hitler was born April 20, 1889 and would eventually become a terrible dictator. He wanted to go into art school, but was rejected. The person who rejected him was Jewish, and some believe that was where his hatred toward the Jewish people came from. Hitler rose to power by being elected, he did not take control by force, he was elected by the German people. Once he had control of the government, he passed the enabling act, which enabled him to make and pass any law on his own; he did not need the approval of the rest of the government.(Palma) This is what permitted the passing of the Nuremberg Laws. After passing the laws, he focused his hatred on the Jewish people and would go on to kill millions of Jews. You were considered to be Jewish if you had three grandparents who were Jewish. If you only had two, you were considered mischling of the first degree. If you had only one, you were mischling of the second degree. There were however, other ways of classifying you as Jewish. If you were a part of a Jewish church when the Nuremberg Laws were......

Self Employ Among Undergraduate Students

...work for themselves instead of working for others and 25% of the respondents would say “Yes” to work for others. Based on the findings, we assumed that self employed can brings different advantages to young entrepreneur students. First of all, self-employed can enjoy the privilege of flexible working hours compare to working part-time which most college students do. Next, they do not need to report everything to somebody such as the manager, the boss, or the company to work for. They suffer less stress while working for themselves compared to working for others as being an employee is usually suffer a lot of pressure given by manager or boss. For, instance, working for others will usually frustrate for the sales target. Furthermore, self-employ could get better reputation and more experience for themselves where this would be a better qualification when they decided to work for others. Besides that, they can earn much better than getting monthly basic salary; how much profit they earn then it would their salary. Therefore, they could earn more profit compared to working for others, and they can work more independently when it comes to decision making. Whereas, there are 25% of respondents said that they are willing to work for others since they are can learn more know from senior workers, and building up business contacts. 3.5 Advantages of Self-employed vs. Employed Self-employed | Employed | * Flexible working hour * No need to report to company * Less......

Is International Law Really Law?

...International Law really Law’? (Arend 1999) Discuss with regard to the frequency of breaches of international law, the enforcement of international law and the difficulties in ascertaining international law. Introduction International law is ‘the body of law composed of principles and rules of conduct which states feel bound to observe and do commonly observe in their relations with each other’. However, it is constantly being questioned whether international law really can be considered law at all. The uncertainty as to its validity can be explained by the arguably frequent breaches that occur as well as the difficulties in ascertaining its content and ensuring its effective enforcement. As such, the validity of international law as a real legal order will be evaluated by examining the following. (a) The sources of international law (b) The enforcement of international law (c) The frequency of breaches within international law (a) The sources of international law The substantive content of international law can be ascertained by reference to a number of different sources. Article 38(1) of the Statute of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) recognises that the Court when deciding on disputes of international law can apply the following: a. International conventions establishing rules expressly recognized by the contesting states; b. International custom as evidence of a general practice accepted as law; c. The general principles of......
