To: Janet Yoon, CEO From: Group 2: Ailiyea Blackman; Zachery Harris; Amy Huber; Tracy Mase; Itsara Ounnarath; Trish Springer Date: March 08, 2019 Subject: Employee Issues- Hiring and Firing with ethical issues Case overview Ethical and Cultural perspectives have impacted Colossal Corporation’s international image and operations. The overseas senior executive staff located in Serafini has been dealing with an equal pay issue with two of ten of the senior executives. A formal complaint has been filed by two of the executives claiming discrimination and unfair business practices located in the country of Serafini. The ten executives are made up of seven expats from outside Serafini, and three from the host country. Colossal’s subsidiary, New Brand Design, Inc. (NBD), has moved to replace the two complainants with two U.S. expats. This has created issues with the local government in passport management and resistance to bringing on an older employee. Our Colossal Corporation CEO, Janet Yoon, has requested a review of the issue and to address the ethical, laws which apply, and the legal application of the laws as relative to Elena, Viktor, Michael, and Beth. 1. Our Ethical Perspective The business case demonstrates two competent executives, “Elena, and Viktor, who are meeting the same standards and requirements as their fellow eight executives though they do not receive the same compensations. After filing a formal complaint both are being targeted for termination, and are to be replaced by two American expats. The determination to terminate Elena, and Viktor are not the right thing to do from and ethical perspective. Elena and Viktor have equivalent
experience and qualifications of three of the U.S. executive board members. Both have been told by Max Ciccone (the human resources director) that their salary and benefits packages are equitable for their lesser experience. Max has consulted with the U.S. operations and has learned they are both to be replaced by Michael, and Beth.
