As a small business they are required to offer FMLA? In the past employees have requested FMLA but were denied citing that the business was a small business. What’s the impact?

In the warehouse employees do not wear the company-issued back belts and safety glasses which has been allowed based on the fact that it is the employees that have been refusing to wear the items. Are they legally allowed to refuse?

In the databases use basic search languages (controlled vocabulary/keywords) to determine employment and labor laws specific to this situation. Then refine your searches based on your search results. Make sure to include a minimum of 4 credible academic sources in your paper.

Also conduct your research using credible websites; for example you will likely want to use the OSHA website and government websites related to FMLA (government websites will end in .gov).

Using your research address the following points in your paper.

Was the company legally compliant with FMLA? Explain and support with law. How can leadership make decisions that are objective and reflect the ethical treatment of others? Demonstrate how leadership can comply with laws and rules governing FMLA to employees in an ethical and professional manner.

Explain who’s at risk for legal compliance when workplace safety is not mandated or monitored.What are the ethical and professional implications?
