Hi Experts, I need help with this project.

1).I need help responding to the following scenario. With at least two references to support the
response. Citing all sources used in APA format.
A woman delivers a healthy baby just prior to starting a new job at a small manufacturing plant. Within a few months after
she starts work at her new job, her infant appears sickly and is hospitalized. The woman discusses her newborn's
condition with her co-workers and finds an unsettling similarity to events that led up to the illness of another female
coworker's child. First, how might you determine if there is a connection between the mother's new job and her child's
illness? Speculate what factors you might have to address and how would you test to prove that there was a connection.
Would the woman have a case if it were taken to court? Why, or why not?

2). In the Course Journal, post about three concepts you learned from the readings in Unit III that will directly relate to your future employment. Include the link to the article from which you have extrapolated your discussion.(PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHEMENT).
