Pg. 24| #2:  Issue:  In this case, an employee performance began deteriorating due to personal stressors in her life such as:  Arranged marriage forced by parents.  The employee is refusing to accept the  marriage and disobey their contract. She has stated she has thought about committing suicide when her performance  was addressed.  Performance issues continued and the manager addressed it a second time and the  employee mentions suicide once again.  Rule:  As an employer, the duty for social responsibility applies in this scenario.  If the employer immediately resulted to involuntary committal to a mental health  hospital before attempting to provide remedy, the mandatory referral could result  in a Civil Rights suit for discrimination, since she is from another country.  The employer must ensure that the referral falls under the mental health policy of  the organization and that appropriate steps in the process are adhered to.  Analysis A good, responsible manager would be hard-pressed to demand that the employee either  improve her on-the-job performance or face dismissal.  However, initiating an  involuntary committal to a mental hospital could constitute an improper invasion of rights with many legal repercussions. An interim step of providing appropriate psychological  social counseling would seem to best fit into the concept of good corporate management.  Conclusion:  The court will most likely research whether the employer provided the employee the  benefit of seeking assistance to solve her personal problems. Additionally, a thorough  investigation will determine discrimination was occurring in the workplace.  I believe  that the employer should assist as much as possible to see what could be done in the  employee’s career that might benefit the employee and reliever some of her stressors.  This would benefit not only the individual, but the corporation may be able to keep a  valued employee.  The cost of counseling is likely to be less expensive than hiring and  training a new employee.

Pg. 24 | #3: Issue:  Mary Sunshine is overall an incompetent employee and her manager would more than  likely be delighted if she decided to leave the company. An unknown company calls to  obtain a reference for Mary.  The manager provides the unknown organization with an  outstanding reference for Mary despite the fact his perception of her is otherwise.  Rule:  Providing false information in the reference was an unethical act that goes against  utilitarianism.   Analysis:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
