DUE TO COVID-19 RELATED INTERLIBRARY LOAN DELAYS, PLEASE ORDER YOUR ITEMS AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE
If Stonehill does not own the book, book chapter, or article you need, you can order it through our Interlibrary Loan Department. However, due to COVID-19 safety measures (the closure of campuses across the country and the need to quarantine borrowed books), it is possible we will be unable to obtain some requested print material.
We suggest that you, if possible, request chapters from books. Book chapters can be processed electronically and sent to you as PDFs. Requested journal articles are also sent electronically, and their delivery should not be significantly delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
BUS 335 Team Project
The project consists of a written paper and an oral debate. Teams will be assigned either the affirmative or the negative side of a controversial issue in human resource management. You will research the issue and draft a paper structured to convince the reader of the merits of your position. The paper must use scholarly, authoritative sources as well as current periodicals such as The Wall Street Journal or Business Week. The paper should also incorporate information from respected organizations’ websites or published materials regarding how these businesses are handling the issue. Websites from consulting companies, Wikipedia, and other popular web sources are not acceptable. Additionally, the two teams assigned opposing sides of an issue will participate in a debate where you will work to convince your classmates of the superiority of your position.
The written portion of the project is due on or before the beginning of class on April 4, 2019. Debates sessions follow, according to the course schedule.
1. US immigration law should be changed to allow more immigration by technical specialists from emerging or developing countries (H1B visas)
2. The Family and Medical Leave Act should be amended to allow longer paid maternity and paternity leave for American workers.
3. Federal minimum wage law should be changed to require employers to pay a living wage to all employees.
Pay close attention when presenting the information from your sources so as not to plagiarize. Use direct quotations or paraphrase properly paying particular attention to the definition of terms in the text—do not copy them directly without quotation marks or significant rephrasing. Ask a Writing Tutor if you are unsure about how to properly cite material in your paper and how to prepare a reference page.
