how social laws impact the health of citizens.

In Portugal, employers are not allowed to terminate employees. In Japan, employers are required to measure the waistlines of their employees, and anyone whose waist exceeds the allowed size is put on a diet by their employer. Full-time employees in France are guaranteed 5 weeks of vacation. India raised the age of employment to 18. These are just a few examples of how the policies and laws of the land play a significant role in the health of a nation. Employment law is just one example of how social laws impact health.

Pick any country other than the United States and review social laws in that nation. Provide a brief overview of their rules and how those rules may influence their citizens’ health. Use evidence to support your position. Use the name of the country as your subject line. Do notinclude insurance or medical provision as part of your analysis; the focus this week is on socialpolicy.
