STEP 1: Start your search for bills in the US Congress at GovTrack Website (opens in new window). This non-partisan website provides a wealth of information on current bills before the U.S. Congress. These are federal laws.

Look for bills that are related to your chosen topic.

Potential Legal Issues in the Workplace:·Employer surveillance of employees·Employee working conditions·Sexual harassment in the workplace·Bullying and retaliation in the workplace·Animal welfare in the food industry·Discrimination in the workplace·Health and Healthcare related laws·Minimum wage laws·Labor laws·Corporate Social responsibility·Business Sustainability·Environmental laws·Artificial intelligence·Whistleblowing·Social Media issues/ laws·Data breaches / data collection/protection practices

STEP 2: Gather preliminary facts related to your topic. Include information that will help us understand the problem your bill is attempting to resolve.  

The information should come from both news sources and journal articles. You should have at least one news article and one scholarly journal article for this assignment, but that would be the minimum. Maximum points will be awarded to those with more than one of each.

To find scholarly journal articles, use Google and type in your topic and then “scholarly articles” and that should work.

STEP 3: Using the information you gathered in Steps 1 and 2, answer the following questions in a two-to-four-page paper (double-spaced).

1. Other than a grade, what is your goal in completing this project?

2. Summarize the bill in 1-2 paragraphs.

3. Who are the sponsors and co-sponsors of the bill?

4. What is the status of the bill?

5.  What is the problem that this bill is attempting to resolve?

6. Describe how those in favor of the bill explain how the bill, if passed, would resolve the problem in your topic.

7. Describe how those opposed to the bill explain how the bill, if passed, would not resolve the problem in your issue.

8. What are the unintended consequences that could occur if this bill is not passed?

9. What are the unintended consequences that could occur if this bill is passed?

Questions 8-11 can be written all together in one answer. LABEL THE ANSWER 8-11.

STEP 4: Finally, identify the affected stakeholders. Stakeholders are all the persons (or communities, or the Earth) affected by the issue. See this article for more information about stakeholders and then answer the following questions (Write about this in the third page of your paper):
