For your Unit 6 Assignment, you will be acting as a lead researcher regarding a hypothetical vicarious liability situation detailed below. For this assignment assume that your immediate supervisor has asked you to prepare a memorandum that highlights support for a particular research-based solution to the situation described. Conduct research on Westlaw (accessible via the Library) based on the following hypothetical.

Hypothetical:

John Stokely is a sales executive for AAA Auto Dealers, a local automobile dealership. He often drives to the manufacturing facility, which is 150 miles from the dealership, to check on new orders. John’s employer reimburses him for gasoline, food, and lodging, and provides John with a dealer car to drive. While driving to the manufacturing plant, John decided to stop by his cousin’s house for dinner. His boss accompanied him on the visit “to get a decent meal for a change.” While on the way there, John collided with and injured a motorcyclist. Is AAA Auto Dealers liable for John’s negligence? Research the legal issues surrounding vicarious liability of employers and respondeat superior. You should also research the coming and going rule along with frolic and detour rules for vicarious liability. Reference both primary sources and secondary sources in your research. Examples of primary sources include cases, statutes, constitutional provisions, and regulations. Examples of secondary sources including law reviews and journals, treatises, Restatements, dictionaries, and the Restatement of Torts.

Part One: Research Log

For Part One of the assignment, answer the questions below about the research you conducted.

  1. What primary sources did you use?
  2. What secondary sources did your use?
  3. What search terms did you use for each search?
  4. What search method did you use (Terms and Connectors, Natural Language, and/or Easy Search)?

Part Two: Analysis

After conducting research, discuss in a memorandum to your immediate supervisor whether AAA Auto Dealers are liable for John’s negligence based on your research. Be sure to take position and support it adequately. The memorandum should be 1–2 pages in length using 12 point Times New Roman font, double-spaced lines, and one-inch margins. Make sure to cite your sources using APA and Bluebook citation format. The document should be in a Microsoft Word 2003 or 2007 file format.

changes in business enviornment

Business Finance

Ongoing challenges in the global business environment are mostly attributed to unethical business practices, failure to embrace technology advancements, and stiff competition among businesses. Imagine that you have been appointed as the Chief Compliance Officer of a Fortune 500 company of your choice and must prepare a presentation for your suppliers regarding your Supplier Code of Conduct to deliver via a web meeting.

This assignment has two parts. For the first part, you are to submit a four to six (4–6) page paper that details what you would say in such a presentation following the same prompts as the video assignment

For the second part of the assignment, you will create a presentation using PowerPoint summarizing the important changes and explanations regarding the code of conduct that you communicated in your video/paper presentation to email to the suppliers after the meeting for future reference. The specific points to cover are listed below.

Part 1: Paper
write a four to six (4–6) page paper in which you:

  1. List specific changes that your company has made to its Code of Conduct in recent years. Provide at least one (1) example of each change.
  2. Explain the identified changes to the suppliers in such a way that they will understand the standards that your company requires in order to maintain their relationship with the company.

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length

Part 2: PowerPoint Presentation

Create a six to eight (6–8) slide PowerPoint presentation in which you:

  1. Summarize your chosen company’s Supplier Responsibility information.
  2. Discuss your company’s stance on each of the following areas:
    • Empowering Workers
    • Labor and Human Rights
    • Health and Safety
    • The Environment
    • Accountability
  3. Identify the key ways that your company’s Progress Report has changed since last year.
  4. Examine the manner in which your company’s Supplier Code of Conduct helps the organization operate as a socially responsible organization.
  5. Provide detailed speaker notes of what you would say if you were delivering the presentation.
  6. Submit a reference page with at least three (3) quality references from the past 2 years that you have used for this presentation / paper. Note: Wikipedia and other websites do not qualify as academic resources.
    1. Tip: A good place to look for references is at the Strayer Library – research.strayer.edu
    2. Here is an introductory video on the library and how to use it: Online Library Resources at Strayer University.mp4

Your PowerPoint presentation must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Format the PowerPoint presentation with headings on each slide and three to four (3–4) relevant graphics (photographs, graphs, clip art, etc.), ensuring that the presentation is visually appealing and readable from 18 feet away. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a title slide containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The title and reference slides are not included in the required slide length.

These databases are only partially searchable through the general search bar. You will have to search them individually to find resources for your paper.

  • Nexis Uni – This contains legal information and would be useful to search for court cases in which your company has been involved.
  • Video Explaining Nexis Uni
  • Mergent Online – This has company info on both public and private companies. Fortune 500 can be public or private. Mergent is known for financial and accounting info, but also has qualitative information too. They offer news feeds, country reports on business environments, industry-wide reporting, company reports, and Annual Reports—the middle 3 are unique to this database. Starting with looking at a company’s annual report would be very useful for this assignment. Industry reports would also be useful to see if your company is involved in any industry-wide initiatives or is notable in its industry in any way (could be good or bad.)
  • Instructional Videos on each of the databases:

American City Business Journals – This is probably the most fun way to read business news by metro area. They have over 35 journals based around US cities. Look up the metro area your company is associated with, go to ACBJ, then choose the applicable city, and search for news articles.

Research Starters are like the academic version of Wikipedia. Search on a topic to get an overview with links to other information within that topic. It will help you get ideas for keywords for your own searches and what you need to know in order to successfully write your paper.

Note – This is an exception example. Research Starter articles do appear in a feature box above the results list when using the general search box on research.strayer.edu.

Don’t stress over writing papers! Watch this video on writing papers and essays. Topics include how to start your research, how to organize your research, how to draft your paper, and how to revise it.

two essay questions

Business Finance

Please answer the following two essay questions and submit in a word or excel:

1. A critic recently claimed that hedge funds cause market volatility to increase when they publicize (and document) that a public corporation exaggerated its earnings. The critic argued that hedge funds should not be allowed to make such public statements, and should not be allowed to take short positions that bet against the firm that is being criticized. Write a short essay that supports or refutes this opinion.

2. Should large securities firms be allowed to be independent and insulated from bank regulation, or should they be required to register as bank holding companies, and therefore be subject to bank regulations? Write a short essay that supports your opinion.
