Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  – born out of the Civil Rights Act of 1961, requires equal  pay for equal work, prohibits job discrimination in all practices on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national  origin, disabled workers, workers over 40 unless a BFOQ. Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)  – Established in 1971 to secure safety of workers by providing  minimum specifications for exits, environmental control, noise, radiation, hazardous materials, sanitation, fire  protection, and electrical installations, etc. Definition of a leader as opposed to a manager  – Leaders can get others to do what they need done by power  while managers only have titles.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
