    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I actually learned a lot in this course, my instructor was very involved and knowledgeable about all the topics. It gives you a good understanding of things employers should and should not do. The course project is also very useful and forces you to think outside of the box and in legal terms.

    Course highlights:

    The course itself is very useful! It's one of them that I will take with me in my career for sure. I am a staffing manager at a staffing agency and was actually able to use some of what I was learning to help me in my job.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you start your course project early, I would say by week 2, spend a little bit of time on each week.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It was a good course but the teacher definitely reads and grades pretty tough. He is very tough on the discussions so make sure you stay on top of the discussions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about so many laws I never knew were in place. It is really good to know you have so many laws behind you in case you aren't being treated right at the workplace.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed be prepared to give the time needed. It actually is a very informative class and I learned about a lot of laws that I actually never knew about. Read what is required and you will be perfectly fine in the course.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I am currently enrolled in the course and it has been my favorite so far. The name of the course is Employment Law. As an employee, this course educates you on your civil rights and as an employer, it educates you on the rights of the employee and your rights as the employer. It touches all legal aspects of employee law with providing examples to assist you in understanding the laws better.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was TItle VII of The Civil Rights Act. The course elaborates on the many discrimination acts which exist against employees due to their gender, religion, national origin, color, culture, disability and age. What I found most interesting was that someone who is discriminated against as a result of their association with a certain culture, religion, or members of a national origin, is protected by Title VII of The Civil Rights Act. For example, if a soldier is deployed to Iraq and his kid attends University in Iraq then comes back to the US to seek employment and is denied the job because he attended college in Iraq, this kid is being discriminated against. The kid can report this case to the equal employment opportunity commission for review.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are considering this course, please go ahead and take it. It prepares you for the real world work place if you're not already in it. As a manager, it educated me of my rights as an employer, what I can legally do and not do. It also educated me on the rights of my employees, what they can and cannot do.
