FORMS OF BUSINESS ORGANIZATION 13 BUSINESS LAW SITUATION A Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 The new manager has rightedly denied the employee A’s request for paid 11weeks leave. In order to fulfill the FMLA of 1993 the company must have over 50 employees and in this case the organization has over 75 employees. It is important that certain factors are considered in order to determine how the law applies in this situation. It is important to find out that whether an employee A has worked for more than 1250 hours during the 12 months of being employed. It is mentioned as per the situation that the employee is associated with the company for almost 2 years which fulfills the criteria of FMLA. As per the situation the employee is certainly entitled to the unpaid leave of upto 12 weeks according to the FMLA law. He is allowed to return to his job at the previous pay rate, but the new manager is unwilling to pay him his 11 weeks of with held salary. There is certainly no violation in this situation as the law allows him to avail upto 12 weeks of unpaid leave in order to care for his new child. The main issue arises about the paid and unpaid leave. Even though the old manager committed to 11 weeks of paid leave, but under the law, there is no obligation on the side of the company to definitely pay him 11 weeks of pay as he availed unpaid leave and since the company is allowing him to regain his previous job along with previous pay rate all the requirements are met from the side of the company in this situation.

FORMS OF BUSINESS ORGANIZATION 14 SITUATION B Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) OF 1967 states that it is unlawful for any organization to refuse to dismiss, employ or show any kind of prejudice against any individual who is over the age of 40 years. The company under discussion has more than 75 employees, which means that the company is legally bound to comply with the law of Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) OF 1967 and since the employee is the at the age of 68 years old, the law has to be followed accordingly. In order to understand whether a violation of law has occurred or not in this case, it is important that complete job audit should be conducted by the Human Resource department. This can be conducted or requested with the concern that the law does allow to refuse any employee a certain task or promotion based on his age just because some threat of work can exist to the employee or to the public by his activities. For example, there is a relative who wanted to join airforce, but he was not allowed to join because of the age factor. When he looked into the matter, it was clear that ADEA does not apply here because the concern of public safety arises and there was no way to compromise the safety and security of the public.

    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.
