After reviewing the above information please respond to the following questions:
Compare and contrast the Facebook and Parexel situations/ outcomes. Be sure to discuss what is meant by “protected concerted activity.”
Discuss how this term affects union and union-free workplaces.
How can HRM ensure that they are not violating employees’ protected concerted activity rights?
Bring in at least 4 additional library sources to help strengthen your discussion.
Please upload your paper by the module due date. Paper length: 4–5 pages, not counting cover and reference pages.
Demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing on your background reading and research.
Information Literacy: Evaluate resources and select only library/web-based resources that provide reliable, substantiated information.
Give authors credit for their work. Cite sources of borrowed information in the body of your text as footnotes or numbered end notes, or use APA style of referencing.
Prepare a paper that is professionally presented (including a cover page, a list of references, headings/subheadings, and a strong introduction and conclusion). Proofread carefully for grammar, spelling, and word-usage errors.
