Answer and discuss the following:
Pursuant to the chapter reading, what wage and work hour protections exist for employees today?  Identify and explain at least three and summarize the statutory laws affecting employee rights over the past 50 years.  Explain the evolution of the law in your own words.
To ensure employee safety in the workplace, Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The Act is administrated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that investigates safety and health violations in the workplace and, through the justice department, imposes fines and/or injunctions on companies that violate the Act. Research a safety and health violation in your home state and provide the example, summarizing the facts and the outcome.  See the link here:Enforcement Cases with Initial Penalties of $40,000 or Above | Occupational Safety and Health Administration (osha.gov)

Explain the actions that employers must take to verify legal employment in the United States.

Overview
In this assignment you evaluate and assess workplace protection legislation, identify the law pursuant to the employment-at-will (EAW) doctrine and legal exceptions and apply this understanding to a business scenario, and explain legal requirements for hiring new employees and your own home state laws as to workers’ compensation and immigration.
Instructions
Respond to the following in 4–6-pages:
Cite two federal laws that you believe are the most important for protecting employees from workplace discrimination. Provide a compelling argument for the effectiveness of the legislation in protecting employees and two case law examples to support your assessment.
Explain the actions that employers must take to verify legal employment in the United States.
Some states do not allow undocumented workers, or those not legally allowed to work in the United States, to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Provide the law in your home state and a compelling and supported (with research) argument advocating for or against your state’s practice of allowing or denying workers’ compensation benefits to undocumented or illegal workers.
Provide a comprehensive summary of the employment-at-will (EAW) doctrine that includes all possible legal exceptions designed to fight wrongful termination.
Cite and support (with research) an appropriate EAW exception that the employee in each of the following scenarios could reasonably argue to save their job.

Scenario 1: JoAnn, a manager, started a blog on the company website for employee grievances and problems. She noticed that a worker was protesting that allegedly no Asian American employees had gotten a raise in two years at the company. Christine, the employee, also criticized how much CEO Elon had made last year and how he was “out of touch” with the realities of his employees. JoAnn reminded Christine that she was an employee-at-will. The next day, Christine talked to her fellow co-workers about forming a union. JoAnn fired Christine and Christine is suing for wrongful termination.
Scenario 2: Steven, a department supervisor, fired his secretary, Ann. Ann, devout Christian, had been putting Right-to-Life flyers in the employee breakroom. Steven talked to Ann twice and reiterated her actions were not appropriate. Ann continued to leave the pamphlets and was also taking time away from work to pray at her desk during the busiest times of the morning. Ann is suing for wrongful termination.

What is a Purchase Order?

Sally calls about an urgent issue with her catering company contract with the federal government. Her usual supplier was hospitalized and could not ship her weekly order to service her military accounts. General Messhall told Sally to contact a different supplier to fill the order. Sally faxed her standard pre-printed order form to the new supplier for $17,642.54 worth of goods. The order form contained the foodstuff, quantity, payment terms, the amount listed on the front, and the usual boilerplate terms on the back. Within two days, Sally received the order from the substitute supplier. The supplier also sent his pre-printed invoice form with the supply delivered on the front and different boilerplate terms than Sally’s invoice on the back that also contained a payment term penalty. Jack’s business form included a price of $20,642.54, a three-thousand-dollar price increase over Sally’s invoice. When Sally received the goods the next day, she immediately put them in cold storage. That same day Sally received a call from someone who identified himself as “Jack, the Substitute Supplier.” Jack stated, “Hey! This is Jack, the Substitute Supplier. I want to inform you that your payment for the shipment is overdue, and because you’re late, the rate is an additional $3,000 per day plus the base price.” Sally said Jack told her to review his invoice which stated that a penalty of $3,000 per 12 hours default nonpayment surcharge attaches for late payments.
Sally retorts, “Yeah, well, I don’t accept.” She instantly retrieved his invoice, read the terms on the back of the invoice, and realized that the supplier’s form had payment terms demanding payment for delivery of goods within 12 hours of delivery. That calculated out to be $6,000 over her regular invoice price and another $3,000 due in 12 hours. Sally noted that her form had a different term for payment that gave her 30 days net payment. Jack, the substitute supplier, told Sally before hanging up that if he doesn’t receive his cash, plus any penalties due, Jack would immediately file a lawsuit for breach of the terms of his delivery order.
Sally retrieves her form and compares the two order forms side by side. She notes a substantial difference in the boilerplate terms but notes other conditions are similar but noticeably different enough to make the effect substantially unfavorable to her. Jack’s form matched the goods requested, listed the correct quantity, and the delivery terms were the same as her form required. Jack’s standard terms (often called “boilerplate”) were utterly unreasonable and one-sided, not matching hers at all. He had the right to substitute non-conforming goods and did not warrant the quality of the products. Jack’s PO stated that if a dispute arose between the PO’s terms, the merchants must pursue resolution through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), mandated arbitration. Jack’s PO also stated that if the dispute involved interpreting a price term, Jack could sue in Federal Court in his state based on Diversity of Citizenship. Since the issue involved pricing, Jack could file a suit immediately.
Between merchants, it is customary to use purchase and acceptance order forms for commercial transactions involving the sale of goods without a negotiated signed contract. PO’s are standard printed forms that contain boilerplate terms and a few essential terms directed at commercial goods. They are fast and easy to use and designed to cover essential information and requirements of merchants. Contracts take time, and the process does not always result in an agreement, nor are contracts completed on time once the lawyers are involved. With merchants, time is of the essence; they need it now! While written by a lawyer, purchase orders do not have transactional legal oversight, especially when crossing PO’s, one from merchant buyer and one from merchant seller. As a result, the merchants don’t end up with signed contracts. The question is, at what point is a contract formed, if at all, and what are the terms? PO disputes continuously end up in litigation. These cases are very fact-specific, resulting in the specific transaction in question. The ultimate issue with competing PO forms with different essential terms is what’s enforceable considering the content of both forms.

Sally believes she is in the right because it was her order and invoice. She states she never agreed to the terms of his invoice nor accepted the goods. It appears Jack has agreed to her terms because he sent the supplies. His demands are troubling because he added unacceptable pricing terms.
Based on Sally’s information, prepare an IRAC formatted response outlining the issues and answering the questions below within the IRAC analysis form (DOCX
analysis form (DOCX).
What are the elements needed to form a contract?

Is an agreement to meet in the park at noon enforceable? Why? Why not?
What is a Purchase Order?
How would you characterize the terms of a Purchase Order?

Is there a difference between a purchase order (invoice) and a contract? If so, compare the two instruments and outline the difference between the two. Please outline the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Are purchase orders controlled under contract law or the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), or both?
How many transactions are there under the UCC case study facts, one or two? Explain?
How or when is an enforceable agreement formed in contract negotiations? At what point, with a purchase order (invoices), is an enforceable agreement established under the UCC? Is there a binding agreement in the Sally/Jack case? Why or why not?
What facts are in Sally’s favor of canceling the order? List them supported by the facts and the applicable statutory sections.
What facts are in Jack’s favor in enforcing payment? What sections of the UCC support Jack’s arguments?
In contract law, you must have a “meeting of the minds” as part of an enforceable agreement. Another element requires that the acceptance must match the offer. What is this contract rule called?
Common law contracts require that acceptance must not add or change any terms of the offer. What is it called when an acceptance of an offer changes terms of the offer?
In the Sally/Jack case, is there a “meeting of the minds” under the UCC when the merchants use invoices that differ in terms? Explain why or why not. What UCC sections support your answer? List the code sections and summarize applicable parts.
Have Sally and Jack formed a contract under the facts? If so, what terms are enforceable, and what UCC sections support your answers? How should this dispute be resolved?
Which facts and code sections would support the position that Sally did not accept the goods? List the facts and summarize the applicable code sections.
