History of U.S. Labor Legislation

Employers have a long history of using their power to abuse employees. Past employer practices have led to bloody conflicts. Over time, the development of Federal regulations has helped ease the tense employee/employer relationship.

Create a timeline of all the significant labor legislation passed in the 20th century using Word’s Table  (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.feature. Next to the name of each law, place a column with the year it was passed, and then another column, in your own words, provide a description of what the law covered. If the law was amended by another law, make an additional column and explain why and how it amended the previous law.

Remember to comply with APA, 6th edition guidelines as delineated in the Ashford University Writing Center and in the Originality Matters section of the course.  You must use at least two scholarly sources in addition to the course text.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
