Discussion Board

Answer the Discussion Board board questions in paragraph form and reply to at least 1 classmate. 

Joan Leikvold was hired by Valley View Community Hospital as an operating room supervisor in 1972. She did not have a contract for a specific duration, nor was she told that the hospital would not discharge her except for cause. She was provided with a policy manual and told that the policies were to be followed in her employment relationship with the hospital. In 1978, she became the director of nursing. In October 1979, she requested a transfer back to her former position in the operating room. The chief executive officer (CEO) felt that it was inadvisable for someone who had been in a managerial position to take a subordinate position. Leikvold withdrew the transfer request but was subsequently fired. Her personnel record indicated “insubordination” as the reason for discharge. Leikvold was an at-will employee. At-will means that there is a contract made for an indefinite duration and either party, employer or employee, may terminate the contract at any time for any reason, or without reason, provided the reason is not discriminatory. Can the CEO fire Leikvold?

Customary International Law

Question 2: Libya recently announced that it is claiming a 200-mile zone off its coast as its territorial waters (and airspace). To stake its claim, Libya placed armed warships across the 200 mile line and warned the world that this line constitutes a “line of death” to anyone who might cross it. Customary International Law establishes that States may only claim 12 miles off their coast as territorial waters. Immediately, the Security Council adopts a resolution condemning Libya’s actions as “violating international law and constituting a threat to the peace.” The Resolution, however, stated nothing about using force against Libya. The United States, pursuant to Congressional authorization, sends armed warships and three fighter jets to patrol the 200 mile zone. The U.S. warships and Fighter Jets never came closer than 30 miles to the Libyan coast. After a Libyan ship fired at one of the fighter jets, the U.S. warships and fighter jets returned fire, destroying two Libyan ships. Did the U.S.’s actions violate the U.N. Charter? Even if the U.S. did not violate the Charter, should the United States care whether its actions violated the U.N. Charter? (At least 300 words).
