Role and Functions of Law by Paul Dansker

Law is part of our daily lives whether is personal or business therefore it is important to understand the role and the function of it. Law is everywhere at work, when we are driving, school and every other things we do during the day. Without knowing it, everything we do involves law and every decision we make in some way or another law is involved. In this paper I will be discussing what law stands for and what type of laws and role play in my present jog.

In a post of Paul Dansker explained In many cases laws have been passed by Congress, first is approved by the president and hopefully people abide by the laws on a day to day basis. Congress puts laws together to make sure that society and business are safe and secured. There have being cases in which laws have being changed but first if most be changed by the executive branch.

“A binding custom or practices of a community: a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as a binding or enforced by a controlling authority” (Merriam-Webster, Inc. (2009).
In the case of Cipollone vs. Liggett Group, Inc., the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act and the Federal Cigarette Labeling and Advertising Act are the type of laws in which help Liggett Group in any type of suit.

Since the labels on the cigarette package were clearly marked with warnings, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Liggett (Melvin, 2011). Since Congress specifically chose to regulate the advertising of tobacco, this law is supreme to any state law that attempts to regulate the same category of advertising (Melvin, 2011)Law plays a very important role when it comes to business and society. It is necessary that laws should be practice and remember, therefore it is crucial that everyone remembers three very important laws they are public and private, criminal and civil and substantive and procedural laws.

When speaking about society law control society and also helps protect human’s right and believes. In many cases laws will help solve situation and misunderstanding. When there is law people must probably obey by it and will help citizen be more in control. Law help place the right justices were and when it is needed in a community.
Starting or running a business is not easy at all. There are so many laws that need to be in consideration before starting any type of company. Paul Dansker made me understand that it is very important that for a company to succeed every area of the business must be covered.

Therefore when speaking about laws business laws are extremely important. Without laws companies could not be secured. Whether is a multi dollar company or a papa and mama’s place law is very important, law will help from companies getting sued and at the same time it helps companies become more productive and more profitable, laws will help a company get contract agreements in place whether is with other companies or customers. It is very important to have agreements and contract because it helps a company be honest and helps be protected.
I work for a pretty big company in which there is a lot of regulation and laws that the company as well as the team members must comply with. One of the first things the company does when you get hire is give the employees a hand book with the company’s policies and procedures human resources goes over the entire hand book and ask everyone if the policy and procedures of the company is understood, after we had understood the handbook it must be sign and returned to human resources.

Open door policy is very important at m job, a person could go to human resource and speak to them if needed, and ethic law is very important especially for the sales representative to stay loyal and true to the customer.In conclusion, in the world and mostly in the US it emphasizes how important laws are in business and socially. Therefore laws have being made to protect and to also be enforced. We live in a world in which laws are extremely necessary, if we would not have laws socially and business it would not be easy for the world to be effective and productive.
