One important role of an HR professional is to distinguish state laws from federal laws.

To find information on state laws and federal laws use resources like the Shapiro library and World at Work “Newsline,” found in the Resource Center at http://www.worldatwork.org.
Research articles related to HR responsibilities in the implementation of state laws that are distinguishable from federal Laws. (e.g., right-to-work, benefits like vacation pay, minimum wage, and others).
Identify a particular federal law and related state law.
What advice concerning these laws would you provide if you were an HR professional advising top executives who had employees in different states and possibly other countries?
