Employment Law case study

WRITE A BRIEF  ABOUT A CASEI HAVE CREATED. THIS IS A HYPOTHETICAL CASE DEALING WITH AN EMPLOYMENT PROBLEM. YOU ARE AN ATTORNEY HIRED TO REPRESENT THE PARTIES.YOU WILL BE EXPLAINED HOW TO USE  IRAC, THAT IS THE FORMAT ATTORNEYS USE TO WRITE LEGAL BRIEFS. 

Mrs. Jones is your client she comes to you with the following set of facts. Mrs. Jones is a 42 year old African American female with a high school degree, who has worked in many retail stores for over 20 years. Her positions have varied from stocking, clerking, purchasing, as well as Asst. store manager and store manager with 5 different companies. Mrs. Jones walks with a limp and uses a cane and weighs 275 lbs.      Mrs. Jones has seen an advertisement for a clerk job at XYZ drug stores. She sends in her resume and has an interview within a few days. One week later she calls to find out if she got the job and is told no.  Company gave it to a less experienced white male with no health or physical problems age 30.
Mrs. Jones sues XYZ Company for not hiring her.
List all issues that relate to the facts given for Mrs. Jones AND for XYZ Company as well. Intertwine these issues with the law and determine what the courts may find.
After 6 months of hard negotiations by you as the attorney and XYZ attorneys, a settlement is reached.  Mrs. Jones is hired as an Asst. manager of one of the many stores the company owns. She is being paid 50 pct. less than the other store managers which she was aware of in the settlement agreement. After working for the company for 3 years at the same store (age 45) she got a promotion to store manager and 3 annual raises. She is still however 50 pct. lower in pay than the other managers.  Mrs. Jones has difficulty sometimes because of her limp and use of a cane. It is very difficult for her to use the bathroom  because of her weight and the size of the toilet. 
Mrs. Jones had complained to her supervisor that the toilet was too small and needed to be changed. She also complained that 2 other employees were making fun of her and teasing her because of her weight ( now 290 lbs. ) They called her FATTY.  Her supervisor said just ignore it not a big deal and toughen up. He also told Mrs. Jones to loose weight and the toilet would not be a problem.  Mrs. Jones went to the HR manager and explained all of the above.  She also told the HR manager that her supervisor came drunk sometimes when he  checked on her store . Finally after this meeting the HR manager talked to Mrs. Jones supervisor and gave him a warning (as to the drinking only ) even though the supervisor and the HR manger  did talk about all the issues that Mrs. Jones mentioned. Mrs. Jones is feeling very emotionally distraught and needs to take a couple of weeks from work. After 2 weeks she comes back to work and 5 days later her supervisor terminates her for poor work performance
Like above , list up all the issues that Mrs. Jones has as well as all the issues XYZ Company has and the other employees involved in the facts have as well.  Again intertwine all of the issues with the law and determine what the courts may find 

Please use you:  1) class notes 2) Google scholar cases and articles    3) California labor laws 4) employment law discrimination 5) Findlaw    6) Equal Opportunity Employment Commission

Java Program Sorting and Complexity Analysis

I am providing the program files that I’ve created already. I used Eclipse to run the code with the java pdk. If you wish to run the programs yourself, I can help you. I’m only looking for STEP 6 to be completed (the paper). The paper’s instructions are surrounded by the double line bars at the bottom. I ran all three iterations of the Bubble sorting method on the file named Program_3_Timed_Bubble_Sort.java, and ran the 3 iterations of the selection sorting method on the file named Program_4_Timed_Selection_Sort.java.

Module 7 showed that one way of comparing different algorithms for accomplishing the same task is complexity analysis. You will recall that in complexity analysis we express the time an algorithm takes to run as a function of the size of the input, and we used the big-Oh notation. For example, if an algorithm has a complexity of O(1), then it always runs in the same amount of time, no matter what the size of the input is; if it O(n), then the time it takes for the algorithm to run is proportional to the size of the input.

However, complexity analysis has a number of limitations. For example, big-Oh analysis concerns the worst case scenario. For example, some sorting algorithms with a complexity of O(n^2) often run considerably faster if the list that it receives as input is (almost) sorted; other sorting algorithms with a complexity of O(n^2) always take the same amount of time, no matter what state the list is in. Also, in big-Oh, we look at the dominant term in our calculation of the complexity of the algorithm. Thus, when we analyze an algorithm and discover that it runs in 75,312 + n time units, we still say that it has a complexity of O(n). It is therefore deemed to be better than an algorithm that runs in .007 + n^2 time units, as this algorithm has a complexity of O(n^2). We also saw the rationale behind this: If n becomes sufficiently large, the other factors become insignificant.

Fortunately, there is another way to determine how long it takes for an algorithm to run, namely timing experiments. In a timing experiment, you actually implement the algorithm in a programming language, such as Java or C++, and simply measure how long it takes for the algorithm to run.

In the term project for this course, you are going to conduct a timing experiment and compare the results with the results you would get from a complexity analysis. We will compare Bubble Sort with Selection Sort.

In its least sophisticated form, bubble sort (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubble_sort) works as follows:

    Assuming that the list contains n elements.
    Compare the first and the second element in the list, and swap them if the last element is smaller than the preceding one; otherwise, do nothing to this pair.
    Now, compare the second and third elements and swap them if the first of them is larger than the second; otherwise, do nothing to this pair.
    Move on the next pair and continue the process until you reach the end of the list.
    A little reflection will show that at the end of this iteration, the last element in the list is now the largest element in the list. The last element has bubbled to the top.
    Now repeat the process but rather than going to the end of the list, stop when you reach n-1.
    Now repeat the process again, but rather than going to the end of the list, stop when you reach n-2.
    Keep repeating this until you reach 1.

The Wikipedia entry has a little simulation that shows how bubble sort works. The code looks something like:

bubbleSort(array A){
  n = length(A);

  for(j = n; j > 0, j–)
      for(i = 1; i < j; i++) {
        if A[i-1] > A[i]
            swap(A,i-1, i);
      }
  }
}

swap obviously swaps the elements and can be defined as:

swap(A, pos1, pos2) {
    temp = A[pos1];
    A[pos1] = A[pos2];
    A[pos2] = temp;
}

Another sort is selection sort (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selection_sort). We saw selection sort in the question in the sub-module on how to determine the complexity of an algorithm. Array A contains n elements, the elements to be sorted.  The algorithm starts at the first position in the array and looks through the array for the smallest element.  Once it reaches the end of the array, it puts that element in the first cell of the array.  It then restarts the whole process from the second position in the array, and continues until the entire array has been sorted.

selection_sort(array A) {
    int i,j
    int iMin;
    for(j = 0; j < n; j++){
      iMin = j;

  for ( i = j+1; i < n; i++) {

      if (a[i] < a[iMin]) {

            iMin = i;

      }

  }

  if ( iMin != j ) {

      swap(a[j], a[iMin]);

  }

    }
}

THE PROJECT

The purpose of the project is to perform a timing experiment. You are required to complete the following activities:

1)    Write a computer program that prompts the user for a number, creates an array for that number of random integers, and then usees the bubble sort to order the array. The program should print out the array prior to the call to the sorting algorithm and afterwards. You can write the program in either Java, C++, C#, or whatever language you are most comfortable in. Do Not use an API from the language library. Write the program to perform the sort.
2)    Repeat 1 but use selection sort this time. Again, write out the program for the selection sort. DO not use the language library.

1 and 2 are primarily intended to make sure that your algorithms work.

Once you are convinced your programs work, do the following

3)    Write a computer program that prompts the user for one number, n for the number of items in the array to sort, and create and sort 1000 different arrays of this size timing the run to get an average time to sort an array of this size. Then do the following:

    Initiate a variable running_time to 0

    Create a for loop that iterates 1000 times.

    In the body of the loop,

    Create an array of n random integers (Make sure you make the range of the random numbers substantially bigger than the array, ie. if the array size is 500 have the random number generator pick numbers between 1 and 5000. For the largest array have the random number generator pick numbers between 1 and 50,000).

    Get the time and set this to start-time (notice the sort is started after each array is built. You want to time the srt process only). You will have to figure out what the appropriate command is in the programming language you are using to find the time (Important: Do not start the timer until after the array is created).

    Use bubble sort to sort the array

    Get the time and set this to end-time Subtract start-time from end-time and add the result to total_time

    Once the program has run, note

    The number of items sorted

    The average running time for each array (total_time/1000)

    Repeat the process using 500, 2500 and 5000 as the size of the array.
4)    Repeat 3 using selection sort.
5)    You now have 6 data points ( the averages from the three array sizes for the two sort algorithms) Create a spreadsheet showing the results of 3 and 4 and create a graph to graphically represent the information. Show both sort algorithms on the same graph for comparison.

———————————————————————————————————————–
———————————————————————————————————————–
6)    Write a one page document explaining the results, bearing in mind that both algorithms have a complexity of O(n^2) and what you know about complexity analysis. Use your knowledge of complexity analysis to explain your results.
The report. In the report, say which machine you ran the experiments on (type of processor, RAM, etc). Explain your experiment and why you feel you received the results you observed.

history

One one looks at Polybius’s treatment of revolutions in Book 8 of his History, it looks as if he never read Aristotle’s Politics book 5.  In fact Polybius’s account of the cycle of politeia looks more indebted to Plato and to Plutarch than to Aristotle.  What evidence is that Polybius knew of Aristotle’s Politics, or like most Roman authors, Aristotle’s Politics was unknown to him?
