Then, it will analyze the causes and effects of unemployment. In addition, it will provide a summary of differing very points of the unemployment crisis facing Americans today.

When we talk of age discrimination in a work place, this is generally where someone has missed out on the opportunity to get a job on the grounds of their age, whether they are thought of as too old or too young. The Age Discrimination Act 2006 requires that all employment practices are based on skills and competences, rather than the age of the person. Not only does this policy have rules regarding getting employed, it has rules that must be followed when the employee is working. So, if an individual feels that they are being treated differently because of their age, they are able to make a complaint against that staff member/colleague and/or sue them. A strength of the Age Discrimination act is that when employers are looking for new staff members, they will employ staff based on how suited they are to the job.
Those that are willing and want to find available work find themselves unable to get job interviews (Cause and Effects of Unemployment Rakoczy, C 2009). Unemployment affects people psychologically and some of the problems they could have is short term and long-term memory loss. Some people begin to develop a lack of self-esteem and confidence when a person becomes unemployed, his or her confidence reduces and many times leads to lack of interest. Stress can also become a major obstacle while someone is unemployed the problem with stress is that it can become proportional to the time of unemployment. Having bad health can begin and you can begin to have physical effects on the body.
There are two views of unemployment known as the classical and Keynesian view. Unemployment rates (which are the percentage of the working population unemployed) vary significantly from country to country with some as low as Belarus’ at 1.0% (2009 est. )(CIA World Factbook) and some as high as Zimbabwe’s at 97% (2009 est. )(CIA World Factbook). The UK’s current level of unemployment is at 2.62 million (BBC News Business, 16th Nov 2011) which has remained high since the global downturn at the end of 2008.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed July 26, 1990 as Public Law and became effective on January 26, 1992. The ADA is landmark federal legislation that opens up services and employment opportunities for Americans with disabilities. The law was written to strike a balance between the reasonable housing of citizens' needs and the size of private and public entities to respond. It is not an affirmative action law but is intended to eliminate illegal discrimination for disabled individuals. The ADA recognizes and protects the civil rights of people with disabilities and is modeled after earlier landmark laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race and gender.
In 2013, a report estimated that child poverty costs the UK at least £29 billion each year. Of this £20.5 billion is a direct cost to government (D.Hirsch 2013). The causes can vary according to their factors. The causes of child poverty can be direct as well as indirect. Lack of resources is a direct cause of child poverty and a lack of parental employment, low paid suitable jobs, educational qualifications, high living costs, family structure, housing, ethnicity, play a very significant role in causes of high-level child poverty (www.cpag.org.uk).
Christine N Nakazwe Legal, Safety, and Regulatory Requirement Paper March, 18 2015 HCS/341 Mrs. Brown This paper will talk about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the effect it had on the human resources Process. In order to understand the effects of the ADA, it is important to understand what the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is all about. "the ADA is a federal anti-discrimination law which prohibits private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment" (Human Resources
JeanGuy can also claim pecuniary damages since he would need future care for his injury, he will lose income for some time before he is able to work and make money again, and the special damage on his arm limits his future income because there are job he was able to do that he would not be able to perform anymore, and this would probably limit his future income too. Chapter 11 2- The foundation of the negligence law is that providing remedy to the plaintiff who has suffered a loss or injury due to the unintentional conduct of the defendant. The first step in four stages in determining if there is a negligence action is making sure if the defendant owe the plaintiff a duty of care. The claim of Paul’s wife regarding the night club failing to provide security outside the club is not a proof of causation. The security guards for night clubs “known as bouncers” usually provide access control for busy nightclubs and screen those who enter (not those who leave) since their duty is to provide security and order for guests.
“Passed as an amendment to the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) prohibits an employer from paying an employee of one gender less money than an employee of the opposite gender, if both employees do work that is substantially the same” (Mondy, 2012, p. 52). For example, JetBlue Airways was able to customize to the needs of their different employee groups providing tailored jobs, pay, and benefit packages to ensure equality and equity in their hiring practices (Gittell and O’Reilly, 2001). Lastly, JetBlue Airways strongly promotes workplace diversity as a part of their business strategies. This would in turn relate to The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which is the law that prohibits discrimination against competent employees with
For the first time, the exclusion and segregation of people with disabilities was viewed as discrimination. Previously, it had been assumed that the problems faced by people with disabilities, such as unemployment and lack of education, were inevitable consequences of the physical or mental limitations imposed by the disability itself (Fleischer; Zames 2011). As with racial minorities and women, Congress recognized that legislation was necessary to eradicate discriminatory policies and practices. The Rehabilitation Act contains five sections that address different aspects of equal opportunity for people with disabilities. First, Section 501 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in themfederal government and requires affirmative action in the hiring of people with disabilities by government agencies (Fleischer; Zames 2011).
