Analyze the pros and cons of each type of
worker from an employer’s perspective and then describe the ideal
proportion of workers for a business type of your choosing. Provide a
supporting rationale for your description.
Employment laws are based on the premise of the existence of an
employment relationship. Defining whether an employment relationship
exists between an employee and employer can be challenging in today’s
workplace, because there are so many different forms of employment.
Regular, full-time employment used to be the norm. Today, companies hire
part-time, temporary, or contract employees; this has impacted the
legal rights of the employees performing the work. These alternative
work arrangements are often referred to as contingent, or non-standard,
It is important for HR practitioners and members of management to
understand employment relationships and the classification of employees,
because this can have a significant impact on the way an employee is
paid. This also affects the application of employment laws.
This assessment delves into the different types of employment
relationships that exist today. Classifying an employee’s status can be
almost as important as defining the tasks of the job, especially when
courts must interpret the law. In this assessment, you will examine the
primary types of work agreements—from handshake and contract, to
employment-at-will, and temporary employment.
When work needs to be done, hiring the right person is usually
foremost on the mind of the employer. How that person is classified once
hired, typically, is the responsibility of the HR department. Often
that classification may become the single most important factor in
resolving workplace disputes. In this assessment, you will explore
options for engaging the right people with the best agreement.
The most prevalent understanding between an employer and an employee
is set at the point of hire, by an agreement to pay a certain wage for a
given piece of work under certain terms and conditions. The earliest
agreements were based on a symbolic handshake and the bond between the
two parties. That symbolic handshake is the basis of employment
contracts today, but the symbols and terms have changed considerably.
