LAW 531 Week 1 Individual Assignment the Role and Function of Law in Global Business
 


Purpose of Assignment

Law impacts how business operations perform. With globalization, the

law's impact and corresponding business risks have grown. The student

will learn to consider how and when a business risk should be pursued

under traditional litigation (lawsuit, answer, and discovery) and where

alternative dispute resolution methods are appropriate in both domestic

and international disputes.

Assignment Steps

Resources: Legal Environment of Business: Online Commerce,

Business Ethics, and Global Issues: Ch. 1, Ch. 2 (pp. 23-32), Ch. 3,

Ch. 4 and Ch. 26; sites such as: Public Library of Law, Law Library of

Congress, and Justia Virtual Chase law database

Select a business or industry with which you are familiar and, in a

minimum of 700 words, excluding title and reference pages, develop an

analysis including the following:

  • Identify at least two ways the U.S. legal system affects that business

or industry.

  • Examine the risks that business or industry encounters when dealing

with traditional litigation, (suit, answer, discovery, trial) and what

measures business managers can take to reduce exposure to those

risks.

  • Choose a global/international business dispute from your business or

industry, then compare and contrast one form of alternative dispute

resolution (ADR) with traditional litigation with regard to that dispute,

and recommend which method is preferred and why.

WEEK 2 


LAW 531   Week 2 Learning Team Charter


 
Overview

In this course, your team will work together to complete a few

assignments. This chartering assignment is designed to help you apply

your project management skills to understand the scope of your project,

then break the project into goals, tasks, responsibilities, resources, and

milestones. The assignment also asks you to discuss and answer some

questions that will lay the foundation for developing your project.

Beyond the Standard Charter

You will notice that this chartering process goes beyond your standard

University of Phoenix Charter by helping your team create a project

plan for team success by providing you with opportunities to define your

deliverables, recognize the connections between the deliverables and

other classroom activities, determine your timelines and milestones,

identify each team member's expected contribution, and answer

questions that lay the foundation for building your projects.

Putting "I" in "Team"

Important to note is the section for defining learning team expectations

related to participation, collaboration, communication, team

contributions, assignment deadlines, and other considerations. Please

take the time to discuss and document how your team will address

each area and any challenges that may arise. It is important to

understand that we are "Putting 'I' in 'Team'". In short, we will recognize

and reward individuals according to their contributions to team output,

not according to their team membership. This means that individual

grades may be different from the team grade depending on each

individual's contribution to each team deliverable.

Completing this Assignment

Do the following to complete this assignment:

  • Review the Charter and Project plan.
  • Review the weekly Learning Team deliverables.
  • Complete the provided Learning Team Charter and Project Plan,

including the following: team member contact information, project by

week, learning team expectations, team discussion questions.

LAW 531  Week 2 Individual Assignment Business Forms and Governance

 

Purpose of Assignment

The legal form an entity or individual takes is a decision that must be

considered from a risk and liability perspective, not simply one of ease

of formation or cost. Form can impact the entities ability to grow and, in

some circumstances, its ability to survive. As you consider this reality

and approach this assignment, consider not only the form the business

takes but also the way it will be governed. Remember the law requires

business leaders conduct their business ethically and within the

boundaries of the law.

WEEK 3


 
LAW 531   Week 3 Learning Team Business Tort and Criminal Liability Presentation


 
Purpose of Assignment

Why do businesses enter into agency relationships and hire

independent contractors instead of employees. Is it simply cost? Is it a

question of liability, or is it a combination of the two? As you approach

this week's assignment, consider these questions and think about how

they impact risk and what factors in that business create the most risk

for the employees and executives. Is it always the same?

LAW 531  Week 3 Individual Assignment Business Tort Liability


 
Purpose of Assignment

You may be familiar with personal torts such as negligence; however,

WEEK 4


 
LAW 531  Week 4 Individual Team Property Rights, Cybercrime, and Cyberpiracy€™s Impact on Domestic and Foreign Business

 

 
Purpose of Assignment

Business managers are confronted on a daily basis with decisions

regarding the use of real, personal, and intellectual property, and the

rights and duties existing with relation to these property rights while at

operations to this equation, and the manager is left with much to

consider when evaluating the legal risks associated with the use of

these properties as they engage in their business activities. It is the

purpose of this assignment to promote the evaluation of all risks when

using company and personal property, particularly intellectual property,

both domestically and internationally.

LAW 531  Week 5  Individual Assignment Agency and Employment Law

 

Purpose of Assignment

Employment costs are arguably a business's biggest expense.

Consider how employment law regulates concepts such as

discrimination, injuries on the job, employee vs. independent contractor,

wrongful discharge, and unionization, to name a few. As you research

for this assignment, consider the decisions made in this area are much

more than business decisions but, in fact, impact lives. How do we

reconcile between hurting employees and impacting the bottom-line?

This is much tougher than it appears.

Assignment Steps

Resources: Legal Environment of Business: Online Commerce,

Business Ethics, and Global Issues: Ch. 18, 19, 20, and 21.

Scenario: As employment costs continue to escalate, it is incumbent

upon organizations to continually monitor its internal operations to

ensure best practices are being followed. To that end, your CEO has

asked you to prepare a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities,

Threats) analysis.

Prepare a SWOT analysis in one of the following formats:

  • A 7- to 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation,
  • A comparison table in a maximum of 1,050 words, or
  • A maximum 1,050-word written analysis in Microsoft® Word.

Examine the following:

  • Consider the impact a principal and agent creates on the business

and its employees.

  • Compare how express, implied, and apparent authority created by

the principal and agent impacts equal opportunities for employees.

  • Identify the laws protecting workers against discriminatory practices.
  • Evaluate how the legal protections present in the workplace differ for

employee and independent contractors.

Cite a minimum of two references for the four content areas taken from

a business or legal resource. At least one reference must be from the

University Library.

WEEK 6


 
LAW 531  Week 6 Individual Team Regulatory Compliance and Governance

 

Purpose of Assignment

Corporate fraud has cost businesses and its shareholders millions of

dollars and has been the source of legislation and regulations

attempting to provide oversight and guidance to corporate boards,

executives, and practitioners. Think about how these laws have

changed the practices of corporate executives and, in light of the Enron

scandal et al., has it been enough?

Assignment Steps

Resources: Legal Environment of Business: Online Commerce,

Business Ethics, and Global Issues: Ch. 16 (pp. 364 -368), 22, and 23.

Scenario: The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) has been in effect since 2002

and has cost businesses millions of dollars in personnel and

administrative costs. Your company is in the process of "going public,"

has underwritten its Initial Public Offering (IPO), and filed its registration

statement with the Securities Exchange Commission. Your current

executive team has asked you to create a plan ensuring SOX

compliance is followed once you become a publicly traded company.

Review the pertinent sections of The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) Act.

For purposes of this proposal to the board, only concern yourself with

the compliance provisions of SOX (Sections 302, 401, 404, 409, and

802).

Create a maximum 1,050-word proposal to the board outling the

compliance project necessary to implement SOX.

Instructions:

Click the link to the Final Examination.

Complete the Final Examination. You are allowed one attempt to

complete the examination, which is timed and must be completed in 3

hours. Results are automatically graded and sent to your instructor.

Note: The automated final exam was designed in Google Chrome and

is best viewed in the latest version of the browser. If you do not use the

latest version of Google Chrome to view and complete the automated

final exam, you may not be able to view the entire exam content. If you

do not have the most current version of Google Chrome, download the

browser before you enter the exam.

Final Exam Study Guide

If you're taking the Final Exam, you probably have some questions,

such as:

  • What is the structure of the Final Exam?
  • What kinds of questions will I see? Can I see some examples?
  • Why is the Final Exam designed this way?
  • How should I study for the Final Exam?

This document will answer these questions and help get you ready for

the exam. Best wishes!

What's the structure of the Final Exam?

The exam questions are based on course objectives and concepts from

throughout the course.

There are 30 multiple-choice questions for each exam. The exam is

timed and must be completed in 3 hours. Students are given one

attempt to complete each exam. Results are auto-graded and sent to

the instructor.

Note: The final exam is best viewed via the Google Chrome web

browser. Please download the latest version of Google Chrome if you

do not have access.

What kinds of questions will I see? Can I see some examples?

The Final Exam will have a mix of the following types of questions:

  • Applications: Knowing definitions is important, but you also need to

be able to apply those definitions in practice. On your exam, you'll need

to apply definitions from individual courses, and you'll also see

questions combining concepts from different courses. These different

kinds of application questions can ask you to:

  • Connect a concept to an example of that concept. These questions

might ask you to recognize an externality in a transaction, identify a

marketing strategy given a description of activities, or spot an example

of a management technique in action.

  • Evaluate a situation and draw conclusions. These questions ask

you to analyze a situation and make an appropriate recommendation.

For example, you might be asked what would make communications

more effective, what is required for a contract to be enforced, or to

identify what would likely happen according to a particular theory.

  • Perform calculations and apply techniques: You could be asked to

perform operations related to finance or accounting, determine what

would happen to an equilibrium point if something in the world changes,

or predict changes in exchange rates.

  • Critical Thinking Questions: On your Final Exam, you'll see questions

testing your critical thinking skills, which means that you'll have to draw

sound, logical conclusions while applying the techniques you've

learned. You might be asked to identify an assumption, analyze an

argument to determine what would make it stronger or weaker, or spot

a flaw in an argument. These questions are often quite difficult, so get

started by checking out the examples below.

Sample Questions:

Note: These are general examples that may not necessarily reflect the

content of your specific course, but rather will give you an idea of how

the questions on your exam will be structured.

  1. Rahul is a manager in the Marketing Department of Acadia Bear

Hospitality, a mid-size chain of hotels primarily appealing to vacationers

who are interested in nature. Rahul's goals for next year include the

following: increasing revenue from guided tours by 20%, increasing the

number of customers who visit Acadia Bear's Web site by 25%, and

turning Acadia Bear customers into ambassadors for the Acadia Bear

brand.

Individual Oct 09, 2018 11:59 PM 15

Which of the following changes would most improve the list of yearly

goals specified above?

  1. doubling the proposed percentage increases in revenue from guided

tours and Web site visitors

  1. clarifying what is meant by an "ambassador for the Acadia Bear

brand"

  1. including proposals for changing Acadia Bear's core mission
  2. specifying the decisions that Rahul should make each week in order

to meet these goals

Answer: (B)

Explanation: For goals to motivate employees, they must be clear.

While many organizations want to turn their customers into "brand

ambassadors," this goal should be more specific in order for Rahul to

understand what success with respect to that goal would look like. (B)

Is therefore correct, as it would provide Rahul with the clear

understanding he would require. (A) Could be a good idea, but might

not be realistic. Goals are not always improved by making them more

demanding, so it is not clear that (A) would be an improvement. Asking

Rahul to change the organization's core mission would be outside the

scope of his responsibilities and so would not be a clear improvement

to this list of goals. The list of weekly actions in (D) would probably

make things worse by micromanaging Rahul. Yearly goals should not

be that specific.

  1. What real-world decisions would people be more likely to make if

they are risk averse when considering potential losses?

  1. paying more for an extended warranty than the expected value of

the cost of the repairs covered by the warranty

  1. considering the entertainment value of the gambling experience

itself when deciding whether to wager in a casino

  1. performing home repairs oneself instead of hiring a professional
  2. preferring to participate in a lottery with a small chance of winning a

large prize instead of receiving a small gift certificate

Answer: (A)

Explanation: If people fear losses in a way that strict calculations would

not predict, then they would be willing to pay more to insure against

those risks than the expected value of taking that risk would suggest. In

(A), people pay high amounts to insure themselves against a risk that,

on average, would be less costly than the warra
