Unit 13 Exam

Chapter 31 1. Workers' compensation pays benefits to workers who get hurt on the job or during a shift. This benefit covers the medical care provided by the insurance provider for the company. Employees who accidentally get hurt in the line of duty will be eligible for benefits. Before providing these benefits, the worker's compensation board will ensure that the worker did not carelessly or negligently cause the injury. 2. If someone suffers an accident while working shifts and loses an eye or arm, they may be eligible for financial and medical benefits as outlined in the company's policies. So this exclusively relies upon the area in which he is working. because the benefits offered by the private and public sectors differ. 3. In the Marshalltown, Iowa, Wal-Mart Store's inventory department, Julie Henle was employed. She was a manual laborer who drove forklifts, unloaded delivery trucks, and climbed ladders to stock shelves. A stack of 60-pound plastic totes fell 15 feet, striking Henle on the head and left shoulder and causing her to fall to the ground. She was treated for contusions, abrasions, and cuts on her left temple and eye in an emergency room. Henle experienced persistent dizziness and headaches as a result of the injury. She was diagnosed with mood disorders following the injury, which caused her to have difficulty concentrating. Henle saw five doctors, one of whom was a neurologist. A doctor conducting an independent medical evaluation found that Henle had a 40% impairment of the person as a whole one year after the injury. Henle was 55 years old at the time. The doctor advised future medical treatments and continued care from a specialist in chronic pain. Both the award of benefits from workers' compensation and the finding of permanent total disability were upheld by the court of appeals. 4. It is a regulation passed by the public authority to guarantee laborers' wellbeing and security by laying out wellbeing and wellbeing guidelines. The Congress government was the first to present this act. a standard that is related to the World Health Organization and requires businesses to provide a workplace free of perceived risks that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious actual mischief. The rules that govern employees' health and safety are set by OSHA. This act covers all workers aside from independently employed and government staff. Workers receive regular training to ensure a better understanding of the safety standards. OSHA gives workers training on the tasks, machinery, and tools they use. This encourages employers to create a safe and healthy work environment. OSHA has a standard way to keep track of injuries and illnesses for everyone covered by this law. 5. PETA conflicts with speciesism, a human-supremacist viewpoint, and focuses on the four locales in which the greatest amounts of animals mope the most emphatically throughout the most significant length of time outlines: in media outlets, the food business, the apparel business, and labs. We also work on a lot of other problems, like killing rodents, birds, and other animals that are often called "pests" cruelly and cruelty to domestic
animals. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a lawsuit against SeaWorld last year on behalf of five orcas. PETA asserted that Sea World had violated the Thirteenth Amendment's prohibitions against slavery and involuntary servitude by capturing the plaintiffs, keeping them in horrifyingly unnatural conditions, and making them perform tricks on them. However, due to the fact that the Thirteenth Amendment only applies to humans, the court concluded that the killer whales lacked the legal authority to sue. If it was my dog and my dog would be getting treated like how Seaworld has been treating the whales, I would be angry. 6. SeaWorld of Florida, operates an amusement park in Orlando, Florida, that is intended to engage and teach paying clients by showing and concentrating on marine creatures. Dawn Brancheau, a SeaWorld trainer with 15 years of experience, was interacting with Tilikum, an orca, in a pool during a performance in front of an audience when the killer whale grabbed her and refused to let go. She drowned after suffering severe injuries. A customer had recorded the performance on video. Although Brancheau was the only SeaWorld employee to be killed by an animal, Tilikum was responsible for three deaths over a 30-year period. Trainers' interactions with killer whales are not subject to any specific duty standards. SeaWorld received citations from Secretary of Labor Tom Perez for violating the Occupational Safety and Health Act's general duty clause by exposing animal trainers to the known risk of injury or drowning while working with killer whales during performances and training. The secretary ruled that SeaWorld had broken the general duty standard, imposed a $12,000 fine, and ruled that trainers should not be allowed to touch killer whales unless they are protected by decking or physical barriers. SeaWorld requested a review. SeaWorld's request for a review was denied by the U.S. court of appeals. 7. The growth rate of unemployment in the United States is positively impacted by immigration, but the effect is statistically insignificant. What's more, the outcomes uncover a positive however measurably unimportant effect of migration on the compensation development rate in the US. I believe the US permit should open borders because we can reduce or eliminate the ICE, Border Patrol, and immigration police forces by opening our borders. The primary reason we should adopt open borders is that it will increase workers' power over their employers, but only if native-born Americans support immigrants. Unless they meet very specific criteria, it is against U.S. immigration law for anyone in the world to travel or immigrate to the United States. This is not equal protection of the laws because others are getting tested and getting vaccinated to stay safe but immigrants are not. Meaning they are keeping them safe and healthy. Which is unfair. 8. There are numerous legal, economic, and ethical considerations involved in the complicated issue of undocumented immigration and access to government services. It ultimately depends on legislators and policymakers to conclude how best to move toward this issue while adjusting the necessities of the two residents and undocumented workers. 9. Minimum wage in Florida- $11, Mississippi- $7.25, Arizona- $13.85, and Utah- $7.25.
10. In New York State, providing unemployment insurance requires employers to pay taxes. Workers who lose their jobs due to no fault of their own receive temporary financial assistance through unemployment insurance, 20000 per year, or 50 percent of 40000, ought to be paid. 11. You must have worked for at least two calendar quarters to be eligible for unemployment benefits. 12. A visa that allows foreign nationals to study in the United States at colleges, universities, and English language programs. This F-1 visa might affect Mercy College students when they graduate because they are eligible to apply for optional practical training. 13. A visa that permits U.S. managers to utilize outside nationals in the US who have uncommon capabilities for specific kinds of work. This visa allows nonimmigrants to find jobs outside of the US, not meaning there isn't qualified education in the US but it gives you an opportunity to leave the US to find a better job. 14. Permits people to move to the US in the event that they meet other laid out models and put a specific measure of cash in a business there. Chapter 32 1. Trade unions use collective bargaining to negotiate employment terms and conditions with employers on behalf of their members. 2. In a collective bargaining agreement, an employer and a union can agree that the union will not strike for a specific period of time. The business gives financial advantages to the association and, in return, the association concurs that no strike will be required at the set time. A strike that goes against a negotiated no-strike clause is against the law, and an employer can fire union members who strike against a no-strike clause. 3. Employees are barred from entering the workplace when an employer has a reasonable expectation of a strike. The voluntary, non-violent withdrawal from a product, person, organization, or nation in protest is known as a boycott. A secondary boycott is a labor union strike against a company for doing business with another company that is involved in a labor dispute. Picketing Activity is used to get more people behind industrial action. It is where laborers engaged with modern activity go to a working environment to increment support for their objective 4. Although the Teamsters are best known for their advocacy for warehouse workers and freight drivers, they have organized workers in virtually every industry, both professional and non-professional, public and private. Teamsters are prepared to help workers who want to bargain together organize. The Union works to enforce a contract after it is negotiated and signed by holding management accountable and using contract grievance procedures if management chooses not to. Teamsters receive significantly higher wages and benefits than non-union workers in comparable positions. Fair pay, fair promotions, health insurance, job security, paid time off, and retirement income are guaranteed by teamster contracts.
