Chapter 3 discusses several major EEO laws and regulations. However, every year, human resource professionals struggle to keep up with the latest employment regulations and trending workplace issues. Local, state and federal laws change frequently and impact todays workforce.
For this article review assignment, you are asked to review an online article about the changing legal environment of human resource management. Do not simply use a website or blog as your source of information. The article must be a feature article published within the last year by a reputable source such as Harvard Business Review or industry publications such as HR Exchange Network, HR Magazine, HR Morning, etc. A list of resources has been provided under Course Resources.
The article should be a minimum of 1,000 words in order for you to be able to fulfill the requirements listed below. If the article is too short, it will be difficult to summarize and provide comments that meet the paper length requirements set forth below.
This is not an opinion paper, nor is it an opportunity to regurgitate the article. The purpose of this assignment is to allow you to understand the connection between the chapter material (textbook and website materials) and the “real world.” Simply quoting from the article, with no application of concept, will not allow for the optimal outcome. Be careful not to
plagiarize; this will result in a grade of zero.
After selecting your article, please follow these instructions to complete the article review assignment. The review should be divided into the following sections using these headings:
Section I: Article Summary – In this section write a clear, organized summary of the article. This should be a concise, thoughtful discussion of the key points of the article. This summary should be written in your own words; do not simply provide quotes from the article.
Section II: Application of Textbook Concepts – Explain concepts from the article in relation to terms or concepts from the textbook. Do not just write a textbook term and define it in relation to the article. Develop the information as the article relates to the material presented in the textbook or website.
Section III: Article Analysis Explain how the specific legislation has changed or evolved since publication of the textbook, or if it is anticipated to change in the near future. How will the change (or anticipated change) impact the workforce? What new insights were you able to glean about the legislation as a result of reading the article?
Section IV: Required Reference Make sure to cite the article in APA format at the end of the paper and attach a URL link so that you instructor can review the article.
Your article review should be a minimum of 3 full pages (double-spaced, using a 12-point font and 1-inch margins, approximately 750 words, excluding title page, abstract and references). Your assignment must conform to APA style. Correct language mechanics (i.e., sentence structure, grammar, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, word usage and citation) are worth up to 10% of your grade on this assignment.
Please note that your report will be submitted through Turnitin, a plagiarism prevention service.
