Identify one environmental law that is relevant to your past,  current, or future employer. Apply that law to a business situation  created by that employer. How does (or did) that employer maintain  compliance with that statute?  Do you believe that environmental  regulations help or hinder business? Why, or why not?

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your fellow students’ posts in a substantive manner.

Agree or disagree with your classmate’s position concerning whether  environmental regulations help or hinder business. Use current events or  your assigned readings to support your position.



I did  not have direct experience with any law to my knowledge that dealt with  the environment being related to work. However, my father came from  South Carolina to work for a major cigarette company in North Carolina.  After being cognizant of the air pollutants that were being released  into the air that humans, animals, and plants breathe, it surely became a  huge issue. The law that comes to mind is the Clean Air Act of 1970.  “The Clean Air Act (CAA) is the comprehensive federal law that regulates  air emissions from stationary and mobile sources. Among other things,  this law authorizes EPA to establish National Ambient Air Quality  Standards (NAAQS) to protect public health and public welfare and to  regulate emissions of hazardous air pollutants” (epa.gov, 2018). Driving  down the highways, we are bound to see factories with chimneys and  smokestacks with, as I say, pollution being released for us to breathe.  The company my father worked had to comply with the law as everyone else  did and now we see minimum contaminants exuding from the pipes. They  found ways to manufacture cigarettes that did not require much manual  labor that caused the smoke and made many of their processes digital  that eliminated the antiquated way of production.

Environmental regulations do not hinder business. If these smoke  pipes are killing the people, who will be left to purchase the products?  These regulations have to be in place and if companies do not want to  abide by them, they should not enter into business. Protect the  environment and the consumer.

Last  summer I did volunteer work at my local SPCA and I worked as a behavior  and training associate with the dogs which included training them to be  obedient, walking them and helping with their general care. “Handling,  housing, feeding, watering, sanitation, ventilation, shelter from  extremes of weather and temperatures, adequate veterinary care, and  separation by species where the Secretary finds necessary for humane  handling, care, or treatment of animals; and exercise” (Animal Welfare  Act and Animal Welfare Regulations, § 2143, p. 10). This law was  important for every worker and volunteer to abide by while in the  facility with the animals, if we saw any wrongdoing we were advised to  report the issue immediately. However, during my volunteer time I did  not see any type of wrong doing towards the dogs in regards to their  shelter, feeding and care.

While the SPCA is not known to put animals down, the veterinarian did  have to make an ethical decision to put to aggressive animals down  because they were too wild to handle. Even though the dogs were acting  wild and aggressive, the vet put them down without having the dogs to  suffer by giving them euthanasia which is legal to do under animal  welfare regulations. Stats are kept on record for each dog that is in  the facility which includes all the care that they receive. These  regulations don’t hinder the business, it promotes it because customers  know that they will be purchasing a dog that has been well taken care  of.
