Prices are rising while the family income is not. A scarce in money also causes another big problem for families- foreclosure on their house. If a family goes homeless, it continues to spiral downhill. Unemployment rates have always been increasing, which mean 1) people have stopped looking for a job or 2) people just cannot get a job. Either way, its caused America to be in a recession for over four years.
Task 2 Family and Medical Leave Act Analysis of situation A The Family and Medical Leave Act allows certain employees to take job covered time off for family, and medical emergencies (United States Department of Labor [USDL], n.d). The Family and Medical Leave act is set up for employees to take care of issues at home so they can be proficient at work (USDL, n.d). The act is available to those who work in the government, in a school system, or a company that exceeds 50 employees (USDL, n.d). If an employee is sick or well the act guarantees that health care plans be maintained as if the employee is still working (USDL, n.d). To determine if a violation has occurred it is best to go over the circumstances surrounding the case.
Over the last several years, wait time and corruption inside of the Veterans Affairs Health Care administration have lead to massive delays, with some patients never even being seen. In some of the worse cases, such delays have resulted in death. One such example is in Phoenix, where “40 veterans died while waiting to see a doctor, 1700 were confirmed to be on a secret waiting list, and others?f average wait times were almost 4 months. Yet the hospital administrator was paid a $9,000 bonus for her 'quality outcomes'.”(Vliet 34). The source of the issue is that there are too many veterans needing medical assistance and not enough resources to manage the demand in a timely manner, which causes overcrowding in Veteran medical centers country wide.

Western Governors University LIT1: Task 310.1.5-02, 11, 13 Situation A: The FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993) allows for eligible employees of covered employers to take an unpaid, job-protected leave and allow for continuation of their group health insurance coverage. This job-protected leave is provided so that employees can tend to the needs of immediate family. Covered employers are those employers that have 50 or more employees working for them. In this case, Company X would be a covered employer. Eligible employees are those employees that have worked for the company for 12 months or longer and have also worked at least 1,250 hours during that 12 month period of employment.
In other words, this means that they would need 36% more nurses in the workforce which will add to the nursing shortage. With not enough nurses, there is more stress and a heavier workload placed on the individual nurse which may result in patients not receiving the quality care that they deserve. The patients are being discharged to recover at home but that may lead to other health problems developing. Nursing shortage also isn’t cost effective because of having to pay a lot of money to replace burnt-out
Situation A The Family and Medical Leave Act was created in 1993 to allow qualifying employees to take an unpaid leave of absence for up to 12 weeks from their jobs for certain medical or family reasons. Those reasons are: the birth and care of a newborn child, adoption or foster care, to care for a spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition, if the employee is unable to work due to a serious medical condition. For an employee to be eligible they must have worked more than 1250 hours in the 12 months of employment with the company and the company must employ 50 or more employees within 75 miles. A change to the Act in 2009 also allows military family leave as well. Company X has 75 employees which meets the 50 minimum employee statutes.
8 The Board wants to increase the number of judges, psychiatrists and psychologists it has as members to cope with its increasing workload but it is finding it difficult to find suitable candidates. We found that the Board is not always making the best use of its existing membership. In the 12 months to 30 September 2007, 22 of its existing members contributed fewer than the minimum number of days set out in the Board’s guidance. Members told us that some are not happy with the level of remuneration offered; the location of some hearings; the increasing risk of hearings being cancelled at short notice resulting in nugatory work; and the receipt of incomplete or late information for the dossiers.6 9 We found that the membership of the Board does not reflect the current structure of society in England and Wales. While the composition of the membership is equally balanced between the sexes, the average age of members is currently 507 and despite efforts by the Ministry of Justice to recruit more members from the ethnic minorities only four current members describe themselves as being
The employees that have been with the ABC Company for more than 10 years will receive a severance package and the employees that have 10 years or less will receive unemployment according to state laws. In some states, an employer that offers a certain type of layoff is mandated to pay a small amount of severance or continue employee health benefits for a short period of time. Severance pay is money that an employer might want to provide for an employee who is leaving their company (Heathfield, 2014). Unemployment benefits are Federal-State Unemployment Insurance is provides unemployment benefits to eligible workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own, and meet other eligibility requirements of State law. Ordinarily, the benefit for eligible workers is 50% of their average weekly income, up to a fixed maximum set by the
