The emphasis is on how to represent information in table form and to draw your own conclusions from the data presented.

Compare and contrast their employee discipline/discharge clauses.
Summarize by bringing in your module readings and/or library research to discuss the impact grievance handling might have on employee relations.
Include at least 3 additional sources to the included to help strengthen discussion.
