Explain whether or not the protection afforded workers under the federal employment acts applies to agents or contract laborers.
e. Describe how the situations would or could have been handled if the worker was a member of a union or a party to a collective bargaining contract.
You should properly cite sources and include the week's assigned reading to support the actions taken by both the employer and the employee in the paper.
