Workplace Issues

a) Read chapter 15, chapter question # 1: OSHA Fact pattern on page 584. Answer the question in the fact pattern and discuss your reasoning, supporting your position with additional research or articles. b) Read chapter 15, chapter question # 6: Worker’s comp fact pattern on page 585. Answer the question in the fact pattern and discuss your reasoning, supporting your position with additional research or articles, if you wish.

Chapter 15 question #1. Employees were making repairs on a company’s huge forging press using a gear-pulling device. The device had four large steel studs weighing nearly forty pounds each. A stud broke off during the repair operation, flew 121 feet, and struck an employee in the head. There had been two prior incidents in which studs had broken off and nearly injured workers, including supervisors, in the vicinity. The lead repairperson for the day shift had repeatedly requested enhanced safety precautions during repair operations, but the company rejected these measures because they would have been too expensive or time consuming. However, on another occasion, the company did take the lead repairperson’s suggestion that it post warning signs and cordon off the area. OSHA cited the company under the general duty clause. The company appealed the citation. What should the court decide? Why? Chapter 15 question #6. Three emergency medical services employees were returning to their office in an ambulance after having had lunch. An EMT in the rear of the vehicle turned on the power to a manual cardiac defibrillator, adjusted its energy to a high setting, and picked up the defibrillator paddles. He jokingly told a female employee riding in the passenger seat of the ambulance that “I’m going to get you.” She screamed and told him to get the paddles away from her. The EMT appeared to be complying, but then turned back toward her and struck her with the paddles while simultaneously activating them. The female employee lost consciousness, had cardiac arrest, and eventually died from electrocution by the charged defibrillator. The deceased employee’s estate sued for negligent hiring and retention of the EMT. Is workers’ compensation the exclusive remedy for the employee’s death, or can the employer be sued in tort? Why? . I will need references.

Crimes in three categories: against property, against persons, and against public order.

Project Details

In your Final Project, you will look at crimes in three categories: against property, against persons, and against public order. In a 9–15 slide presentation, respond to the following questions for each of the crime that you select: The crime selected will be Prostitution

1.Define the elements of the crime, including the actus reus and mens rea for each crime. Make sure to cite a state criminal statute for each crime.

2.Identify whether the crime can be classified as a crime against property, crime against person, or a crime against public order and why the crime is so classified.

3.Describe a factual scenario, either fictional or true in fact, in which the crime is committed. Should there be different penalties for crimes against property, people, and public order? Why? Do you believe that crimes in one category are more serious? Support your argument with examples as to why these crimes are similar or different.

4.Referring to your factual scenario, how would a person’s ideas about multiculturalism and diversity impact the penalties for the crime? For example, depending on the crime a defendant’s sentence might be decided by either a judge or a jury. Based on the particular juror or judge’s socio-economic, cultural or religious backgrounds, do you think that these individuals have certain opinions as to how stringent a defendant’s sentence should be?

5.Provide your opinion as to whether judges should be given wide discretion in determining the appropriate sentence for a defendant.

You may use the Model Penal Code definitions as outlined in your text, or select specific statutes from the Federal or a state criminal code. However, make sure you clearly identify the elements as outlined in that statute. It is suggested that you separate your responses for each scenario with headings in your presentation.

Remember to answer each of the questions above for each of the scenarios you select and, when referring to your text or other sources, clearly cite your sources both on the slides in your presentation and on the reference slide. POWERPOINT NEED TO BE BLACK & WHITE ORGANIC STYLE
