After reading the NOLO.com article, “Contracts 101: Make a Legally Valid Contract (Links to an external site.)” and visiting the Student Career Center where you will review Tips for Professional Success (Links to an external site.) focusing on the information under the Conflict Management section, you will create a contract.
In order to develop this contract, you will adopt the role of an employee at XYZ Manufacturing. The purpose of this contract is to resolve a conflict between you and one of your co-workers regarding a parking space. The conflict has become serious and has affected production and morale in the workplace. Your manager has asked you to settle this disagreement by creating a contract, which will be signed by you and your co-worker. Compose an agreement that does the following
- Present a summary of your contract in the form of an email communication cover letter to your manager for approvalâ€”keeping in mind appropriate and professional email etiquette. (Please go to the Career Center and review “Drafting a Cover Letter” for information regarding the development of a cover letter to be sent via email: https://portal.csuglobal.edu/student/page/view/drafting-a-cover-letter (Links to an external site.).) In your email, explain to your manager how this contract would benefit both you and your co-worker. This will represent the first page of your paper (after your title page).
- Present your contract, which should include the factors of time, tasks, goals, potential clauses, assignments, and restrictions.
- Use and define legal concepts by incorporating the legal terminology from your textbook where appropriate and relevant.
- Use academic or legitimate news sources, such as The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, etc.
Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length, not including the title or references pages. Include at least 3 credible sources to support your findings. The MGT315 Business Law Library Guide (Links to an external site.) can help you with finding quality resources.
