HRLR 311 Override Request Form for Summer 2022

Complete this form ONLY if you plan to take HRLR 211 AND 311 in a Summer term

HRLR 211 is a prerequisite for HRLR 311. The new enrollment system does not differentiate between Summer session 1 and Summer session 2. It treats both sessions as the same semester.

In other words, the system does not recognize that you have satisfied the prerequisite. An override will need to be processed on your behalf.

If you plan to take both HRLR 211 and 311 in a Summer semester, you need to enroll in HRLR 211 for Summer session 1 AND submit the following form to be enrolled into HRLR 311 for Summer session 2.

ISS 308 : Social Science Approaches to Law (D)
Section 731 | 5/16/2022 - 6/30/2022

ISS 308 focuses on social science approaches to law, satisfying MSU’s requirement for a diversity course. In the HRLR section of this course, we will explore various legal standards that affect the employment relationship, including protection against discrimination and harassment, employee privacy interests, and workplace accommodations for employees (i.e., flexible schedules or support animals). Students will consider sources from various related disciplines (including political science, economics & psychology) that impact the legal standards related to the employment relationship. The course will also consider how governance systems impact the legal standards related to the employment relationship, such as the role of federal and state governments in requiring pay for internships and protecting employees against excessive intrusion of their privacy through drug testing and review of social media. Students will develop critical thinking and persuasive communication skills related to legal standards for employees’ rights and benefits, such as discussing why employees with certain political views or members of the LGBTQ community should or should not be protected against discrimination in the workplace. This knowledge will prepare students to assert these rights in the workplace.
