HRM 586 Week 6 Course Project NEW
Labor Relations Course Project
Guidelines | Course Project Topics | Grading Rubric
There is a written course project due at the end of Week 6. It should be 15–20 pages in length (excluding the cover/reference pages). Your work must be double-spaced with one inch margins and should use one of the five approved style formats (APA or MLA are preferred). You may select one topic from the list below.
You should choose a labor relations topic that is of interest to you. This could be an idea that: (a) comes out of one of the class case studies, (b) something you have wanted to investigate for a long time and have not had time for, (c) a labor relations issue that is pressing at work and needs a solution, or (d) a recommendation that you want to make to your organization's labor relations professionals or to your union.
Your paper should be organized in such a way that you integrate the following elements into your work:
• A clear thesis that consists of at least two main points
• Introduction section with a detailed background/history of the topic
• Literature review that incorporates research that supports your assertions on the topic
• Recommendation section where you will explain what you have learned and how you propose to alter or amend the situation discussed
