Liability

Discussion 1  Should the law allow an employer to fire an employee without a good reason? Conduct research to provide examples to support your position and use your own personal employment experiences when possible. Have you observed situations where an employee was fired? Did the employer give a reason? Do you believe the employer’s actions were legal?  Discussion 2  Karen is shopping at Big Mart. She has with her an umbrella which is the same brand Big Mart carries. When a Big Mart employee, Steve, sees her leave with the umbrella without going through the checkout lane, he asks her to come back into the store. Steve says that he thinks Karen is shoplifting the umbrella. Karen tells him that she has had the umbrella for years and shows him marks of wear and tear. Steve apologizes and tells Karen she is free to go. Can Karen successfully sue for false imprisonment or defamation? From what you have learned about the relationship between a principal and an agent, analyze whether Steve or Big Mart could be liable because of Steve’s actions.  Assignment Develop an introduction with a thesis statement for the Final Paper.

[SOLVED] Civil Rights Issue

This is the original postDB2Can you explain why this is a civil rights issue? Why do you suppose Ms. Prescott did not assert a wrongful death claim?Answer:Civil rights are supposed to protect people’s well-being from discrimation against things such as race or sex. This situation is a civil rights issue because discrimination on the basis of sex and gender was present. RCHSD was made aware of Kyler’s gender dysphoria, gender identity, and his need to be referred to exclusively with male gender pronouns. Despite assuring Ms. Prescott that they would respect Kyler’s wishes and treat him like a boy, hospital staff chose to ignore his wishes by using feminine pronouns and going as far as to make comments calling him a pretty girl.            Wrongful death claims are usually made when the death of someone you love is caused by direct negligence, misconduct, or error by another individual that has a legal obligation. For example, if a doctor fails to diagnose cancer and a patient dies because of that, it is considered wrongful death because that doctor had a duty and was negligent. In my opinion, the behavior of the employees contributed to Kyler’s death but was not the direct cause of it. Kyler was depressed and taking part in self-harm before he was ever taken to the hospital. Also, it happened over a month after Kyler was discharged.What were the responsibilities of the CAPS unit personnel in implementing the psychiatric “hold,” and why were they not carried out?Answer:The responsibilities of the CAPS unit personnel were to watch Kyler, protect him from harming himself any further, and to provide assistance with his negative feelings and urges to harm himself.Those responsibilities were not carried out. Staff of the hospital misgendered Kyler, making his dysphoria and feelings worse. They also have a responsibility to monitor the patient and make sure that they are in a much better state of mind before discharging them. The staff still had concerns about Kyler’s depression and suicidal staff, but discharged him anyway because of the conduct of the staff. These responsibilities were not carried out because the staff was unprofessional and not as caring and devoted as they should have been.What is the difference between “sex” and “gender”?Answer:            Someone’s sex is their biological makeup. It is their DNA, chromosomes, hormones, reproductive organs, chemical makeup etc. that make them technically male or female. Gender, however, is more how and individual perceives themself. Gender is defined by the culture and focuses on the roles and responsibilities, internal awareness and emotional attributes. Gender is more of a “real” picture or idea of who people are.Can you explain the terms transgender, transsexual, gender nonconforming, and cisgender?  How do they differ, if at all, from sexual orientation?Answer: For the record, different people have different definitions all over the world, but these are the definitions that I believe to be the most straightforward:Transgender: Having a gender identity that is different from the gender assigned at birth.When someone feels that their birth gender does not reflect their internal self, they are referred to as transgender.Transsexual: Usually used to express that someone’s gender experience involves hormone treatments or surgery to help better align their physical self with who they feel to be inside.Gender Nonconforming: Usually refers to those that look, dress, or even behave differently from what society expects. These individuals do not conform to the gender roles and norms that people expect.Cisgender: Refers to those whose gender identity matches the one given at birth, meaning males feel like males and females feels like females.Sexual orientation describes the gender(s) that one is attracted to. It has nothing to do with the gender that one identifies themselves as. Examples of sexual orientation are heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, etc.How can HR policies and practices be used to deal with these kinds of situations.AnswerMost places already have policies and laws in place for discrimination. The issue is enforcing those policies and laws. Management should make sure that all staff is properly trained and educated, that all policies are actually enforced, and have consequences when they are not followed.Note: I need two different reply to this post in one page

[ORDER SOLUTION] Life Insurance Company

Please discuss the following case study: Globe Life Insurance Company has undertaken a new sales program that targets neighborhoods in Los Angeles where drive-by shootings were a nightly occurrence. Two such shootings occurred in which children were killed as they sat in their living rooms. Globe salespeople were instructed to “hit” the houses surrounding those where children were victims. They were also told to contact the parents of those children to sell policies for their other children. Tom Raskin, an experienced Globe salesman, read of a drive-by shooting at Nancy Leonard’s home, in which Leonard’s 5-year-old son was killed. The Los Angeles Times reported that Leonard was a single parent with four other children. Raskin traveled to Leonard’s home and described the benefits of a Globe policy for her other children. He offered her the $10,000 term life policy for each of the children for a total cost of $21 per month. Leonard was in the process of making funeral arrangements for her son, and Raskin noted, “See how much it costs for a funeral.” Leonard had been given several tranquilizers the night before by a physician at the hospital’s emergency room. The physician had also given her 15 more tranquilizers to help her through the following week. She had taken one additional tranquilizer an hour before Raskin arrived, using a Coors Lite beer to take the pill.Leonard signed the contract for the policy. After her son’s funeral, she received the first month’s bill for it and exclaimed, “I didn’t buy any life insurance! Where did this come from?” Discuss whether Leonard had legal standing to sue Globe. Did she have to pay for the life insurance? Also, discuss the ethical issues involved in the Globe’s sales program. Discuss the legal issues involved in Raskin’s decision to target Leonard the day after her son’s death.
