Running head: EMPLOYMENT ISSUES Employment Issues Report Group 6 Qunita Triplett, Tiffany Doby, James Ko, and Brook Frisque University of Maryland Global Campus MBA 630, Section 9047 March 04, 2020 Laurie Van Hook, JD, PhD Employment Issues Colossal Corporation is responsible for maintaining a subsidiary located in Serafini, which is a European country. New Brand Design, Inc. (NBD) is the parent company located in Delaware and is known for its designs and manufacturing of innovative electronic products that they distribute for resale worldwide. NBD has recently received the go-ahead to conduct business in Serafini. The NBD executive board is composed of 10 members, some from the United States, some from Serafini, and one individual from Italy. The board's job is to manage over 100 Serafini national employees. Two Serafini board members, Elena and Viktor, have realized their salaries and benefits packages are smaller than other board members and have filed
EMPLOYMENT ISSUES 2 a complaint with Max, the Director of Human Resources at NBD (Employment Issues-Hiring and Firing, 2020). Max has been working with officials in the United States to fix the issues that are taking place in Serafini. One solution was to replace Elena and Viktor with Michael and Beth. Michael is 66 years old with vast corporate experience and is highly qualified for the job, but he is over Serafini’s working-age limit of 65 and has been denied a work visa for the country. Beth is also very knowledgeable at her job and has 15 years of experience in management. According to Serafini, Beth’s work permit has been denied because her application was incomplete, although the country has been known for denying females when applying for management positions. Elena and Viktor were told that their salaries were lower because they were not as qualified as their other counterparts. Information surfaced that they were just as qualified as three of the United States executives. The case study also mentions that Elena and Victor have threatened to file a lawsuit against NBD (Employment Issues-Hiring and Firing, 2020). Based solely on an ethical perspective, terminating Elena and Viktor is not the best option. The case study does not mention that either of them had committed any acts of torts against NBD. They both could be victims of discrimination based on their nationality. The best solution would be to match Elena and Viktor's salaries and benefits package to that of the three other executive counterparts which have equal experience and qualifications. Ethics can impact many aspects of management and operations, including human resources, marketing, research and development, and even the corporate mission. Some cultures lack clear social rules preventing discrimination against people based on age, race, gender, or sexual preference.
