UNIVERSITY / INSTITUTE: Strayer University
CLASS / COURSE: LEG 500
Assignment – 2
You need to answer following questions on the basis of attached transcript of video and course study material:
1. Explain if it matters that a parent literally had nothing to do with a biological child in order for the child to take advantage of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to care for that parent.
2. Explain whether the size of the business can have any effect on whether Tony is eligible for family leave under the FMLA.
3. Explain whether Herman can or cannot imply that if Tony takes a leave of absence under the FMLA, he may not have a job when he returns.
4. Describe who is covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993.
5. Explain the extent to which an employer can make his or her own determination as to the eligibility of an employee under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
The format of the report is to be as follows:
o Typed, double spaced, Times New Roman font (size 12), one inch margins on all sides, APA format.
o Type the question followed by your answer to the question.
o In addition to the five (5) pages required, a title page is to be included. The title page is to contain the title of the assignment, your name, the instructor’s name, the course title, and the date.
NOTE: You will be graded on the quality of your answers, the logic/organization of the report, your language skills, and your writing skills.
1. Please type the question and put your response immediately after.This helps keep your paper organized and makes it easier to grade.
2. Pay attention to the page number requirements. You should have approximately one typed page for each question.
3. Write in APA format-you need RUNNING HEAD, page numbers, correct font size (12), References, etc...Again, please see the sample APA paper that I posted under "Student Center" for an APA refresher, if needed. Points will be deducted for improper or lack of APA format.
4. Answer the question as directly as possible. Don't go off on random ideas. DO NOT WRITE INTRODUCTIONS, ABSTRACTS, CONCLUSIONS, ETC, as these items are not required and will not be considered as part of your "page count"...Just answer the five questions as directly as possible.
5. Make sure you watch the videoin Week 3 and incorporate the facts from the video into your Assignment. Talk about what happened in the video and how it relates to the questions. Failure to mention the facts/scenario in the video will negatively affect your grade.
6. Sources-you don't need to go overboard and cite 50 sources for Assignment 1, but try to incorporate at least a few sources (textbook, website, journal, etc...). Wikipedia should NEVER be used as a source in an academic paper (see article under "Student Center"). Remember that you need to cite your sources in-text and in a Reference page. Examples of both can be found on the sample APA paper.
Have a great week and as always, please email me with any questions.
