Module 1 – SLP
INFLUENCES ON EMPLOYEE RELATIONS
In the SLP project for this course you are asked to place yourself in the role of others. You might play the role of an employee, HR Manager, or another stakeholder in a private-sector organization. By the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of different HRM employee/union/employer relations responsibilities in the private-sector and how to maximize your department’s contributions to the organization.
Look over the following list from the Overview page:
As you recall we began the course by considering many different internal and external factors that might impact relationships at work. For example:
Employer Rights Company Policy & Work Rules
Management Actions Wage and Salary Plans
Employee Privacy Employee Benefits
Supervisory Actions Work Design
Economic Conditions Available Information
Work Assignments Technology
Employee/Co-worker Actions Performance Management
Labor Unions Company Practices
Laws & Regulations HRM Procedures
Write a magazine article draft (of at least 750 words) in which you select one internal or external factor from above and analyze how it can positively or negatively impact work relationships. (Look at HR Magazine in the library to see what a short magazine article might look like.) Be sure to include employer examples (stating employers by name). Also provide specific examples (for example, if you discuss “work assignments,” provide actual examples of work assignments on the job and how they could impact relationships with others).
Include 2 additional library sources (or more) to help strengthen your submission.
Upload your paper by the module due date.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing on your background reading and research.
Information Literacy: Evaluate resources and select only library/web-based resources that provide reliable, substantiated information.
Give authors credit for their work. Cite sources of borrowed information in the body of your text as footnotes or numbered end notes, or use APA style of referencing.
Prepare a paper that is professionally presented (including a cover page, a list of references, headings/subheadings, and a strong introduction and conclusion). Proofread carefully for grammar, spelling, and word-usage errors.

Module 1 – SLP
PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS
Recently, the State of California prohibited grocery stores from providing free disposable bags to their customers. Instead, stores were required to charge a small fee of 10 cents per bag if customers wanted to buy bags from the store. Customers were encouraged to bring and use their own reusable bags. Despite the nominal charge of 10 cents per bag being so little, the large majority of consumers have adapted by bringing their own reusable bags when they go grocery shopping.
In a 2- page paper, explain how the economic concept of elasticity of demand applies to disposable grocery bags and how the concept might have been used in setting the 10-cent bag fee. Besides elasticity of demand, what other economic and noneconomic forces might have been at work in the significant reduction in the use of disposable bags in California?

Assignment-Driven:Does the paper fully address all aspects of the assignment? Is the assignment addressed accurately and precisely using sound logic? Does the paper meet minimum length requirements?
Critical Thinking: Does the paper demonstrate graduate-level analysis, in which information derived from multiple sources, expert opinions, and assumptions has been critically evaluated and synthesized in the formulation of a logical set of conclusions? Does the paper address the topic with sufficient depth of discussion and analysis?
Business Writing: Is the essay logical, well organized and well written? Are the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary appropriate for graduate-level work? Are section headings included? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of responding, or is justification/support instead conveyed through excessive use of direct quotations?
Effective Use of Information: Does the submission demonstrate that the student has read, understood, and can apply the background materials for the module? If required, has the student demonstrated effective research, as evidenced by student’s use of relevant and quality sources? Do additional sources used provide strong support for conclusions drawn, and do they help in shaping the overall paper?
Citing Sources: Does the student demonstrate understanding of APA Style of referencing, by inclusion of proper citations (for paraphrased text and direct quotations) as appropriate? Have all sources (e.g., references used from the Background page, the assignment readings, and outside research) been included, and are these properly cited?
