Impact of Longer Working Hours on Employees

I have drawn out and turned in an outline that did not turn out so well. I am trying to create a Research Proposal on the effects of employees that have to suddenly change from a 9-5, 5 days a week, weekends and holidays off to a 24/7 operation with only 15 employees being able to cover the hours. I believe I have mis-read information and honestly just need an example of the information given below to help me complete the task at hand. If you can please answer the questions below in an example way of giving me a better understanding of how I need to address this I would greatly appreciate the help.

1)Include the following headings:
Current Situation, Problem Statement, Research Objective, Research Question(s), and Hypothesis

2)Write a literature review on your selected topic.

3)Generate a sampling design that will yield the best results for your research objective. Include the following information:
1. Research the objective.
2. Description of the population: Process for identifying the target population and selecting the sampling frame
3. Describe the sampling procedures (convenience, quota, simple random), and justify your rationale for choosing
the procedure(s).
4. Determine the sample size using one of the techniques from Chapter 17.
5. Calculate the confidence interval at 90%, 95%, and 99% to get an interval estimate, and explain the results.
6. Identify the different types of biases that are likely to occur and explain what steps you will take to minimize them.
7. Conclusion: Highlight the major points discussed in the previous sections. Be sure to relate the information back
to the purpose and relevance of the research

4)Design a basic experiment to assess a cause and effect relationship based on your research question. Include the
following information:
1. Research the objective.
2. Explain if the design is a true experiment or a quasi-experiment. Justify your selection.
3. Develop a hypothesis based on your research question.
4. Evaluate your hypothesis according to the characteristics provided in the lecture. Be specific.
5. Describe the independent variables, blocking variables, dependent variables, and extraneous variables.
6. Explain how you plan to deal with issues related to internal and external validity. Be specific.
7. Conclusion: Highlight the major points discussed in the previous sections. Be sure to relate the information back
to the purpose and relevance of the research.

Solution Summary

The research proposal is for the study covers all aspects of a research proposal such as the objectives, hypothesis, sampling procedure, sample size and confidence interval. The proposal also includes one for an experimental design. Attached in Word, PDF and Powerpoint.
