Contract Law Agreements
After reading the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) article, “How to Create a Legally Binding Contract,” and visiting and reading the Student Career Center’s “Advanced Topics for Professional Success” and under the Conflict Management section, you will create a contract. In order to develop this contract, you will adopt the role of employee at XYZ Manufacturing. The purpose of this contract is to resolve a conflict between you and one of your coworkers regarding a parking space. The conflict has become serious and has affected production and morale in the workplace. Your manager has asked you to settle this disagreement by creating a contract, which will be signed by you and your coworker. Compose an agreement that does the following:
Present a summary of your contract in the form of an email communication cover letter to your manager for approval – keeping in mind appropriate and professional email etiquette. (Visit the Career Center and review “Drafting a Cover Letter” for information regarding the development of a cover letter to be sent via email at https://portal.csuglobal.edu/student/page/view/drafting-a-cover-letter.)In your email, explain to your manager how this contract would benefit both you and your co-worker. This will represent the first page of your paper (after your title page).
Present your contract, which should include the factors of time, tasks, goals, potential clauses, assignments, and restrictions.
Use and define legal concepts by incorporating the legal terminology from your textbook where appropriate and relevant.
Use academic or legitimate news sources, such as The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, etc.
Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length, not including the title or references pages. Include at least two academic or legitimate sources to support your findings.
