Business Law Case Study
PLEASE AVOID PLAGIARISM!!! MY PROFESSOR IS VERY STRICT ON COPYRIGHTS. MGMT 4331 Team Assignment – Employment Case Brief Your team is to select a US Supreme Court employment law decision from 2000 to present and prepare a brief of that case using the Blatt Student Brief Format described in the article. Note that you must also add a section at the end of your brief describing the significance of the case, including at least four law review or academic sources. Make sure you delegate a team member to submit the brief and then slides after the class presentation to your professor. Additional Details: Employment law in the United States is shaped by the US Congress, but also by the US Supreme Court that interprets the various laws passed by Congress. This has had a major impact on the interpretation of the law by management. Pick a case regarding an important employment issue decided by the US Supreme Court between 2000 and today. Make sure you fully understand the case before you start writing. Really recent cases are unlikely to have much good academic material available to guide your analysis, so you may want to focus on cases that are at least two years old. Your paper should follow the brief format provided to you in the Blatt article in Course Documents. Use the first brief format discussed in detail starting on page 21. Law review articles and scholarly legal publications usually contain extensive articles discussing the impact of various Supreme Court cases. Note, this is to be your team members own work. You may not cut and paste from a published brief on your case. If you cut and paste from an article or use extensive quotes from the case, instead of providing your own analysis, you will reduce your credit for the paper, perhaps substantially. When you cite from your selected case, you must use proper citation format. Check with the UST Writing Center if you are concerned about your writing. See APA 6thEdition for correct citation format. If you use other material without providing proper citations, this is plagiarism and you will receive a zero for the assignment. The case brief should be four to five pages of double-spaced text in length, not counting cover page or references. Good writing is essential to business professionals, so the brief should look good and be in proper format, even though it will be submitted by email to your instructor. While you will follow the briefing format, in your analysis section at the end, this is where you will be expected to show your further research on your selected case and its impact on society and the legal system. Be sure to use your outside sources. This section should have at least four legal or academic sources. If you are unsure, check in advance with the UST Library or Writing Center. The case briefs must be in the professors email box by the time indicated on the day designated in the syllabus. There is a substantial penalty for late submission. TEAM RESEARCH RUBRIC: [100 point scale] Note: Since team papers are by definition written by a team, it takes some planning and coordination to produce a good team paper. At the same time, a team of quality students working together should be able to produce high quality written reports, in addition to good class presentations. Selection of Topic: (up to 5% of Final Grade) Some extra credit for more unique, less publicized, subjects for each assignment topic. On the other hand, if the topic does not fit the assignment, the grade will be substantially lowered. Analysis of the Background: (25% of Final Grade) A thoroughly researched analysis of the subjects background for each assignment is expected. Formal Analysis of the Papers Subject: (40% of Final Grade) This is the meat of your teams paper and this should get to the point of the paper in clean business language and present the position and observations of your team on the selected subject. Brevity is appreciated and it is especially important to avoid fluff or extraneous material. Sources and APA 6 Compliance: (20% of Final Grade) APA 6 compliance, especially for in-text cites and the references list at the end, is required. It is optional to follow APA 6 for formatting the paper, but poorly formatted papers will lose points. At least two solid sources on average per assigned page, not including the course textbook or other textbooks, is expected. At least half of the sources must be primary sources or peer-reviewed academic publications. There will be a major reduction in score if students fail to do this or use junk sources. If your team members are not sure what sources are quality sources, discuss this with the UST Library staff or the Tutoring Center. Technical Features: (10% of Final Grade) The paper must meet the length requirements for each assignment. No penalty for running a little long, but students can be docked for poor business writing, which is often wordy. Focus on short sentences and decisive management style writing. Running a little long is not penalized, but running long due to flowery, wandering language will cost major points. Grammar, spelling, & punctuation each team should have one or more members who take responsibility for quality control of the final paper. NOTE PENALTY IS 10% OFF PER DAY LATE.
