Assignment 02: Duty to Serve


For the purposes of this assignment, and for the sake of clarity, let us refer to the “duty to treat” as the “duty to serve.”

Write a two to three page paper that contrasts the “duty to serve” between grocery stores, restaurants, and hotels (as one group), and hospitals (as the other group).

• Support your thoughts with legal arguments from the text.

• You might consider how the very nature of the two “providers” differs.

• Consider also what people seek from each group.

• Consider what each group offers.

• What is the expectation in each case?

Cite sources to your writings from your text and/or internet, articles, etc. For information on citations check these handouts from the APA Style tab on the library website.
