Select one of the following employment laws. (Please make sure you don’t duplicate one of the laws you are doing for your PowerPoint presentation) to discuss – first summarize it (history and major components) and second explain why you personally feel it is important. I don’t want to see general comments. This is a very important week in understanding the employment laws. Please communicate throughout the week with your classmates on their selections. Make this a robust Discussion Board – more than three postings to your classmates – the more the better.
