There are two sets of instructions here. This order includes a research paper with an annotated bibliography. The length of both has been taken into consideration and included in the page count. Human Resource Policy Project: Research Paper Instructions In a research paper, provide researched rationale for the nature and substance of your 4 selected, distinct policies. This paper is to be reflective of an academic research paper. The research paper must address the reasoning and/or rationale for the inclusion of the selected policy elements in a policy manual. The selected policies must correctly address employment legislation pertinent to the stated size of the company (1525 employees). In elaborating on the rationale, you may want to consider the following questions: Why should these elements be in a policy manual? What laws or principles mandate an organization follow these guidelines? What cases have established precedent for this issue to be addressed clearly in an organizations employee policy manual? Support your rationale with (at minimum) the 10 scholarly sources used in your annotated bibliography in addition to the textbook and the Bible. Remember, government websites and previous/current court cases are useful but will not be included in the scholarly reference requirement. The paper must be at least 1,750 words, in addition to the cover page, the abstract, and the references page. It must be written in current APA format. Papers submitted with less than the minimum word count will not receive full credit in this area of the grading rubric. Following are some examples of HR policy topics. These are only examples. You may identify/select other topics that would be relevant and appropriate for a general employee policy manual/handbook. · Dress Code · Technology Use · Code of Conduct · Confidentiality · Harassment · Benefits (This can be more specific to areas such as paid time off, health care benefits, and so forth.) · Training Opportunities/Expectations Human Resource Policy Project: Annotated Bibliography Instructions The annotated bibliography for your 4 selected human resource topics must consist of at least 10 reputable, professional, scholarly journals and/or informational venues that deal with the content of the course (i.e., not blogs, Wikipedia, newspapers, etc.), be in current APA format, and contain persistent links so others may have instant access. Include a proper title page. The annotations are designed to help your classmates better understand and more easily learn about your topic. The annotation is not a normal required component of APA; rather, it is a specific additional requirement for this assignment. Note the following regarding your annotated bibliography: · An annotated bibliography is a list of the journals and resources you used. · Each citation is followed by a brief paragraph (at least 150 words) that is descriptive and evaluativethe annotation. · The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
