Describe one legal obligation the employer in the scenario has, according to one of the following laws:

Describe common legal considerations for the creation and operation of a business organization.
INTRODUCTION
Today’s business environment requires leaders to have competency in effective organization design and to consider legal factors that influence whether strategic goals are achieved. In this task, you will discuss legal entity types and their influence on taxation, liability, and ownership and control. You will also discuss the legal and ethical obligations that an employer and employees have in a business context.
SCENARIO
A local farmer and a supermarket retailer plan to enter into a business venture to open a downtown farmers market every weekend from April through October. The goal of the farmers market is to bring fresh organic produce to an area of the city that would otherwise not have access to organic fruits and vegetables.
The retailer would like to have more decision-making authority in order to control the marketing and ownership of the warehouse space that will host the farmers market. The local farmer is personally concerned about the financial impact of having a primary stake ownership because the farmer does not want to suffer a large financial loss if the business venture is not successful. (The farmer has been affected in the past by things outside of their personal control, such as excessive rain which caused decreased profits over the past two seasons) The retailer has proposed they include outside investors in order to have access to capital and expertise that will help create distribution efficiencies. The local farmer would like to limit outside investors and external decision-making influence in the business because the farmer doesn’t want to lose primary control of the farmers market.
The local farmer currently grows enough produce to have 20 stalls at the farmers market. The retailer would like to plan for growth by beginning the farmers market with the produce that the local farmer grows and then double the number of stalls offered each year by adding organic options from other regional farmers markets to build sustainable networks. The retailer proposes organizing the farmers market venture as a corporation, while the local farmer recommends organizing as either a limited liability company or a general partnership.
Two years after the retailer and local farmer establish the farmers market, there has been notable growth. The farmers market has expanded to include additional regional farmers who provide more produce every weekend. To manage the farmers market, the retailer and local farmer have hired general managers with extensive experience in organic retail sales and promotion. The retailer requires that some of these managers work overtime hours on the first Saturday of each month so that new products can be staged and merchandised before the market opens each weekend. However, the retailer does not pay overtime wages to the managers, claiming that the required overtime is management training and an investment in their future career development. For some reason, the female managers are always the ones required to do this extra work even though they have similar levels of experience to the male managers.
Besides the general managers, the farmers market also employs several employees. The employees stock the stalls with produce. The managers occasionally require the employees to carry unreasonably heavy boxes of produce from the trucks to the stalls. These heavy boxes should be moved with a hand truck to prevent injury, but hand trucks are not always available. One employee recently strained his back lifting a heavy box.
On the first Saturday in May, the general managers identify substandard produce that has been damaged or is not ripe. The general managers notify the retailer that this produce should not be sold. However, the farmers who provide the produce will only get paid if the merchandise sells, so the retailer tells the general managers that they should display the produce so that customers will not be aware of the substandard quality. The retailer also suggests that if the sales are not 10% higher this weekend than last weekend, the general managers may not receive a full day’s wages for their work today.
REQUIREMENTS
No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly.
A. Compare two of the proposed legal entity types for the farmers market venture by doing the following:
1. Describe one of the legal entity types identified in the scenario (i.e., Corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC), or General Partnership) and then describe how it would affect each of the following factors in the context of the farmers market:
• taxation
• liability
• ownership and control
2. Describe one legal entity type identified in the scenario (i.e., Corporation, Limited Liability Company (LLC), or General Partnership) that is different from the one described in part A1 and then describe how it would affect each of the following factors in the context of the farmers market:
• taxation
• liability
• ownership and control
B. Describe the legal and ethical obligations the employer in the scenario has by doing the following:
1. Describe one legal obligation the employer in the scenario has, according to one of the following laws:
• Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
• Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
• Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
2. Describe an ethical obligation the employer in the scenario has that is different from the legal obligation described in part B1.
C. Describe one ethical obligation of the employees in the scenario.

Did the report demonstrate that you understood the significance of the assignment and the purpose for developing specific guidelines for the area you identified.

BLM234 Fundamentals of Purchasing & SCM – Final Paper Fall 2022
Here is the general topic area for this semester’s paper:
“Procurement: Its role in dealing with global supply chain disruptions”
Given the times that we are currently living in, with global supply chain disruptions, it is certainly timely and appropriate to take a long hard look at what is expected from the Purchasing organization to ensure a more resilient supply chain.
For this assignment put yourself in the place of being a VP of Procurement for either a public or private sector organization in government or private industry. Virtually, “all of a sudden” you were called upon to make things happen. No more normal days ahead for you and your team for quite some time. There are many things to think about such as but not limited to: abnormally high demand for specific items, availability of raw materials to continue to produce and then subsequently ship finished goods, a supply chain which was becoming depleted, consumer hoarding of essentials, single versus multiple sourcing, international versus domestic suppliers, etc. Did your suppliers/partners let you down or was this virtually unavoidable? Availability was also hindered by some companies shutting down to protect their employees during the pandemic, thus reducing their inventories to fill committed orders. How will you respond? Select an industry, company and/or a product(s) and talk about what you would have done to minimize the impact on those that were depending upon you. Did most companies do a good job?
Here are a couple of thought provoking questions to help get you started. Should you have seen this coming? Did your existing policies and actions hamper your company’s ability to respond more effectively? Now that you can at least glance in the rearview mirror what will you change going forward.
Begin by applying what you are learning in this course as well as the additional research that you will need to do.
Overview:
DUE DATE: 6:00 AM 11/29/22
Use Microsoft Word.
Include citations within the actual text of the Final Paper
List a bibliography at the end of the paper

Describe the main features of one of the following organizational structures that would meet the needs of the consulting business and explain how this structure applies to the scenario.

The paper explains how the structure of an organization impacts its effectiveness in the context of critical circumstances.
INTRODUCTION:
Today’s business environment requires leaders to have competency in designing organizations to effectively achieve strategic goals. In this task, you will choose an organizational structure that will positively affect a venture’s ability to effectively achieve goals and explain your choice in relation to the four factors that impact organizational design. You will also be asked to evaluate how choosing a different structure could impact organizational outcomes.
SCENARIO:
You have decided to create a consulting business to address increasing market needs for sustainability and innovation in the community. You want to emphasize how businesses can make incremental changes in the workplace to achieve sustainable results that increase profitability and brand reputation. The mission of the company is to “facilitate sustainable social, economic, and environmental development opportunities for the good of businesses in the community.” The company should be designed as a mission-driven, for-profit organization that will create partnerships that result in sustainable changes for the community. You would like your business to be successful so that your consulting firm can raise your city’s ranking in the “Most Sustainable and Innovative Communities” list from the top 20% of all U.S. communities to the top 10%.
Before you design a business venture plan that includes its organizational design, you will identify how the business will generate revenue. You will assess the sustainability and innovation needs for 30 businesses in the local community in the first year. You will then share the results of those assessments with all business stakeholders to generate feedback that will be used to develop and implement proposals for consulting. You would also like to hire three university students as part-time interns to help you develop an organizational structure. You are interested in seeking investors in the business community who would like to take a leadership role in the business and its decision-making.
You are excited about this opportunity and begin considering the organizational structure for your consulting business.
Note: Additional employees may be hired in the future.
