Employment and labor laws vary from country to country. Foreign labor laws generally provide much more protection for workers than labor laws in the United States. While the Fair Labor Standards Act in the U.S. establishes a minimum wage and overtime pay for hourly workers, it doesn’t limit the number of hours a company can require an employee to work. In Mexico, however, the Constitution establishes a maximum of eight hours for shift workers, a maximum of seven hours for the night shift, and a maximum of nine hours of overtime per week. For every six days of work, Mexico’s workers must have one day off.
Identify one law from the United States and one international law. Compare and contrast each law in a 3-5-page paper. Discuss the following topics in order using the prescribed section headers in bold.
- Section 1: Introduction. Introduce the topic and provide a
1â€“2-sentence thesis, or position, on the topic.
- Section 2: United States Law. In this section, provide a comprehensive review/background of the U.S. law you selected.
- Section 3: International Law. In this section, provide a comprehensive review/background of the international law you selected.
- Section 4: Similarities and Differences Between the Laws. In this section, you will identify the similarities and differences between the laws selected. Also, explain if the laws selected work within the other country. For example, does the U.S. law work in Japan? Why or why not?
- Section 5: Conclusion. Make your position clear to your readers and remind them of why it is important.
- Write a 3-5-page paper, or about 1100 words, not including the title and reference pages, which are required.
- Your paper must be properly cited and formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.).
- Include a formal reference page. This is an individual paper; however, you should reflect on our discussion forums and incorporate ideas from there, as appropriate.
- You must support your analysis with at least three scholarly references and can include resources from this course.
- The CSU-Global Library (Links to an external site.) is a good place to find these sources. You cannot use Wikipedia or any CSU-Global assignment. For this assignment, a credible source is defined as:
- A scholarly or peer-reviewed journal article.
- A government-based website or publication.
- A trade or industry journal article, publication, or website, including those from trade organizations such as SHRM.org and TD.org.
