HUMAN RESOURCE POLICY PROJECT: RESEARCH PAPER INSTRUCTIONS
In a research paper, provide researched rationale for the nature and substance of your 4 selected, distinct policies. This paper is to be reflective of an academic research paper.

The selected policies must correctly address employment legislation pertinent to the stated size of the company (15–25 employees). In elaborating on the rationale, you may want to consider the following questions: Why should these elements be in a policy manual? What laws or principles mandate an organization follow these guidelines? What cases have established precedent for this issue to be addressed clearly in an organization’s employee policy manual?

Support your rationale with (at minimum) the 10 scholarly sources used in your annotated bibliography in addition to the textbook and the Bible. Remember, government websites and previous/current court cases are useful but will not be included in the scholarly reference requirement.

Your tasks are to network all branches, provide internet connectivity, e-mail services, remote
connectivity between other branches and Toronto, deploying other related servers as described
by the following questions:
1. Provide a LAN solution for each office connecting the computers together. What network
topology you are going to use for different LANs and why? Explain all connectivity devices
used by your selected topology.
2. Provide a solution for IP address assignment for the above offices. You need to explain the
type of IP address assignment (static/automatic), how the total solution is going to work and
