According to the act, as we have mentioned before, FMLA only covers private employers in which the business employs 50 or more employees. Since Steven works for a private organization which only employs almost 30 employees, this is one fact that will disqualify him for FMLA leave. Second of all, not just any employee who ends up being employed for an employer who is covered can actually take advantage of what FMLA has to offer. In order to gain benefits from this act, the employee has to be employed by the business for at least 12 months. Since Steven has only been employed for 7 months, this unfortunately further disqualifies him to the benefits under this act.

Darby argued that it was not for Congress to ban transportation in interstate commerce as well as violate the 5th Amendment protecting citizens from self-implication by recording of the times and ages of their laborers.
“Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.” - John Adams. Knowledge is sometimes very difficult to gain. Those few years of struggle will lead to many years of a society that can stand strong. Montag spent years with internal conflict because he knew how corrupt the society was, but it left him happier than anyone else. In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury uses symbols and a metaphor to convey that knowledge is the key stone for every society.
In Boaz versus Federal Express, an employee with a lower pay grade took on the responsibilities of an employee who was let go that was 20 pay grades higher with no additional pay. She performed those additional duties for 4 years. Her employment contract included a provision that stated: “To the extent the law allows an employee to bring legal action against Federal Express Corporation, I agree to bring that complaint within the time prescribed by law or six months from the date of the event forming the basis of my lawsuit, whichever expires first” (Wright, 2013).

Studies have shown that thirty percent of children in foster care remain in care for more than two years. The longer children stay in care the more placements they are likely to experience. More than half the children who enter the foster care system will be moved to a different home in their first six months. It is also found that children care for more than two years will experience about three different placements. Nearly all of the moves have nothing to do with bettering the well being of the child.
