Laws that Drive Policies, Procedures, and Practices

Assignment 1: Discussion—Laws that Drive Policies, Procedures, and Practices

HR laws—federal, state, and local—drive HR policies, procedures, and practices. This assignment will focus on HR laws. The legal environment greatly influences HR practice.

Using the Argosy University online library resources and applicable government Web sites, conduct research in HR laws that drive HR policies, procedures, and practices.

Then, respond to the following:

  • What are some HR laws that organizations can use to develop and implement policies, procedures, and practices?
  • Name and describe at least three laws that would drive policies, procedures, and practices.

Support your positions with references from required readings or from other academic sources.

Write your initial response in a minimum of 300 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Beginning Saturday, March 29, 2014, post your responses to the appropriate Discussion Area. Continue to get to know your fellow classmates and contribute to our discussion of HR laws.

Through Wednesday, April 2, 2014, comment on at least two of your peers’ responses.

Do the following when responding to your peers:

  • Read all posts from your peers.

  • Provide substantive comments by contributing new, relevant information or quotes from course readings, Web sites, or other sources; building on the remarks or questions of others; or sharing practical examples of key concepts from your experiences, professional or personal.
