EMPLOYMENT ISSUES2Employment Issues IntroductionColossal Corporation is responsible for maintaining a subsidiary located in Serafini, a small 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.
