Child Bullying and Workplace Violence
Child bullying is one of the greatest challenges the younger generation faces today, in my opinion, while work place violence is problems faced by adults. To me it would seem the mitigating factor of bullying is associated with the divorce rate that is in America, while it seems for workplace violence there is no one real cause. We will cover a wide variety of topics today, but a special emphasis will be placed on bullying as it is something that deeply saddens me and is likely to deeply sadden you after I share my thoughts and essentially ethics regarding this matter. Three of the reasons children may be preyed upon are poor social skills, they may have no or few friends, and being non-confrontational, (McIntire, Franks, n.d.). “Tracing the ferment of workplace violence back to its root causes involves looking into the role of individual behavior, the interaction of a set of risk factors and the situations presenting the greatest risk, (Causes of Workplace Violence, n.d.).
Children with Poor Social Skills
When kids have poor social they are generally isolated and choose to keep to themselves, thus allowing bullies to pick on them. Seeing as how they are pointed out among most of the children in schools, it is no wonder they are chosen by bullies. I can remember countless times growing up in school that the children who were always left to themselves were targets of bullying. It is a saddened and harsh reality that need to be changed in the school system, not only within our country but all around the world as well. “It may sound counterintuitive, but bullies need help, too. Teens and even younger children who victimize others tend to have poor social skills and emotional regulation, which can contribute to their…...

...was denied in favor of the defendants. Plaintiff’s Theory: The plaintiff claimed that the now former employees were in violation of their contract and has caused his business hardship, therefore they should be terminated and not allowed to work in competition with his company. Defendant’s Theory: They were not in violation of the contract and that all of the information that they allegedly were providing could be obtained by public sources such as the internet. Further, that they had not provided any confidential information with Red Bull, nor were they exposed to information that represents trade secrets. Issue: Did the defendants violate their employee contract with Russell and Nasc Services Inc.? Holding: No, the defendants did not violate the covenants alleged in the employee contract. Rationale: The plaintiffs reasoning for the immediate drop in costumers was all information that was public and could be found on the internet and the defendants were not exposed to information that represents trade secrets. Furthermore, the results if the defendants found guilty would create an unfair and oppressive scenario. Result: The plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunction was denied in favor of the defendants. What do you think? Was this case decided correctly? Why or why not? Yes, I do think the case was decided correctly. The defendants should have the right to stay in the career field of their choice and knowledge. The information that they were......

Business Law I: Class Action Law Suits

...Class Action Law Suits Allen R. Yates One of the most fascinating aspects of business law is the class action lawsuit. I find this intriguing because class action law suits are often litigated on the same principles as other types of civil action suits, however, the outcome of the class action lawsuit often may have a deep impact on our society, as well as our legal system as a whole. In a normal civil lawsuit, where the plaintiff is the victor, said plaintiff is typically well compensated for their respective damages. Thus it can be viewed that is how justice is served in these cases. In the class action lawsuit where the plaintiffs win, often the individual is not proportionately compensated for their damages as compared to the victor in the average civil suit. In fact there have been class action law suits that have been held in favor of the plaintiffs, damages have been rewarded by the courts, but the individual did not receive a cent of monetary compensation. Yet, in these cases, justice has still been adequately served on the basis of morality. . In this paper, we are going to take a look at class action lawsuits. This paper will cover the history of class action lawsuits, what exactly a class action law suit is, how a class action suit is filed, and we’ll take a look at some of the more famous and impacting class action lawsuits in our nation’s history. The history of most of the United States legal system is deeply rooted in the heart...

...1. In State X, persons must be at least eighteen years old before they can purchase alcoholic beverages. The state also has passed a law requiring that persons who prepare and serve liquor in the form of drinks in commercial establishments be licensed. The only requirement for obtaining a yearly license is that the person be at least eighteen years old. Moffitt, aged thirty-five, is hired as a bartender for Lone Star Restaurant. Bekins, a staunch alumunus of a nearby university, brings twenty of his friends to the restaurant to celebrate a football victory. Bekins has ordered four rounds of drinks, and the bar bill exceeds $200. Bekins learns that Moffitt has failed to renew his bartender's license, and Bekins refuses to pay, claiming the contract is unenforceable. Is Bekins correct? There are five elements to a contract that make them valid or enforceable. This includes legality. The contract, according to the text, must be formed for a legal purpose. Essentially, a contract that includes clauses that is prohibited by federal or state law is illegal and is therefore unenforceable. Technically it is illegal for Moffitt to sell drinks and thus the contract between him and Bekins party is unenforceable. However, if the case is brought in court the contract could be deemed enforceable. The only requirement necessary to update the license to serve drinks is that the person acquiring the license be eighteen years old; Moffitt is above the legal age (35). Although Moffitt has......

Bus311: Business Law I (Bai1247A)

...Potential Remedies BUS311: Business Law I (BAI1247A) Tony Sgarlatti January 5, 2013 There are six elements to an enforceable contract. First of all, they must offer and acceptance, mutual agreement, consideration, competent parties, legality of purpose, and proper form. Contracts may be classified in many different ways, and it mainly depends on how they were formed and crafted. A contract may be either written and/or oral. It can be formal or simple as well (Liuzzo & Bonnice 2010). Bearing in mind the situation will decide how these six elements come into play with the particular contract. Consumers are to expect that when they hire someone to fulfill these contracts, this person will complete the task as fast as they can, and be detailed oriented. Any changes or mess-ups could cause money to be lost and thrown down the drain. The money fuels the contractor, and the buyer/ client is fueled by accuracy and flawlessness of the contract. The client puts a lot of trust in the contractor and expects them to be self-driven and complete what is necessary. Doing complete and accurate work in a timely manner is expected on all levels, especially as more money is put on the table. There are many reasons why a contract would be implemented and created. Revisions are common among parties to create a more custom contract. (Luizzo & Bonnice 2010). Substantial performance occurs when a party to the contract, in good faith, executes all the promised terms...

Law/531 Business Law

...Week 3 Individual Assignment Luis A. Campudoni LAW/531 Business Law Prof. Marlene Wilhite February 19, 2010 Legal Issues in Contract Fulfillment Agreements are a hot and critical topic in business agreements today. How do entities engaging in business contracts conclude in a consensus of the clauses, terms, and expectations of the project seem to fail at times due to expected and / or unexpected factors. This seems to be the case of the business contract between Span Systems and Citizen-Schwarz AG (C-S) where performance and deadline problems have emerged and is presenting a risk to the project status. Due to these factors C-S is now considering closing the contract with Span Systems terminating the project as it is. This request presents certain legal aspects that need to be considered before proceeding to minimize losses from both parties. In order to determine the proper path to follow I have provided a summarized analysis on the identification of problems, actions to avoid risks, legal principles in favor, and the recommendation of a final solution below. Situation: a) C-S is requesting Span Systems to conclude operations immediately due to poor quality on delivered project results so far and because Span Systems has not been able to stay on agreed schedule. b) Span Systems states that the approval and review process from C-S for the project was to extent because of an internal change in the project management structure from C-S’s part. As a result of......

...Institutional Affiliation: Date: In the current century, it is evident that numerous changes have been observed in the law firm business. The traditional law firm practice model has as a result been passed by time and firms or any person attempting this model have always found themselves struggling in this dynamic market. The traditional law practice has also been marked by constant consternation as the law firm does not produce good results. The incorporation of the new law firm practice model is evidenced by the rising number of law firms over the years. This means that to start a firm in the 21st century, then you definitely have to use the business models applicable in the current century and not the ones that were used in the 19th century. With these, it follows that successful lawyers are those who have changed their modus operandi and embraced the latest legal practices, something that my friends and I would use to establish a successful law firm. The turning point in the establishment of the modern law practices came about as a result of the high court decision by the U.S Supreme Court (Bates & O'steen V. State Bar of Arizona, 1977) in (Munneke, 2012, p. 4). It is worthwhile noting that the success in the Law firm requires a proper identification of a legal niche to practice in. According to Munneke (2012), the competition that the law practice faces from other professionals necessitates the careful niche selection to make a firm successful......

...Role and Function of Law Ron Metz January 13, 2013 LAW/421 Tom Poulton Role and Function of Law The definition of law is “a body of rules of action or conduct prescribed by controlling authority, and having a legal binding force (Melvin, 2011, pg. 4).” Laws create duties, obligations and rights that reflect the accepted views of any given society. The most obvious purpose of laws is to provide order that defines crimes and levies punishment for violation of the crimes. It also helps to resolves disputes by providing a basis for deciding the legal interest and rights to every party involved in the dispute. Modern law in the United States regulate businesses and individuals in a combination of constitutional law, statutory law, common law and administrative law on a federal, state, or local level. (Melvin, 2011) The function and role of law in business can help with the planning process and gaining access to opportunities. Laws help the business gain access to opportunities that may help avoid law suits and gain the competitive advantage through advertisement and strategies. Laws are also put in place to help protect business secrets. (Melvin, 2011) The function and role of law for individuals is to protect the property of individuals and to keep order among individuals. These laws are in the form of civil laws, criminal laws, substantive laws and procedural laws. Civil law is law to protect individuals and businesses against any loss in the result from another’s......

...certain issue, the UCC governs; when the UCC is silent, the common law governs. Sales contracts are not governed exclusively by Article 2 of the UCC but are also governed by general contract law whenever it is relevant and has not been modified by the UCC. A sales contract is a contract for the sale of goods under which the ownership of goods is transferred from a seller to a buyer for a price. Article 2 deals with sale of goods; it does not deal with real property such as real estate, services, or intangible property such as stocks and bonds. If a dispute involves real estate or services, the common law applies. In some situations, the rules under the UCC can vary quite a bit, depending on whether the buyer or the seller is a merchant. A sale is the passing of title to property from the seller to the buyer for a price. To be characterized as a good, the item of property must be tangible, and it must be moveable. Tangible property has physical existence; it can be touched or seen. Intangible property is such as corporate stocks and bonds, patents and copyrights, and ordinary contract rights, has only conceptual existence and thus does not come under Article 2. A moveable item can be carried from place to place. Tangible property is property that has physical existence and can be distinguished by the senses of touch and sight. A car is a tangible property; a patent right is intangible property. (Miller, Jentz. Business Law Today: Comprehensive. 9. VitalSource Bookshelf. South......
