Running Head: Employment Issues1Employment IssuesMBA 630December 4, 2020IntroductionNew Brand Design, Inc. (NBD) is a Colossal Corporation subsidiary that specializes in designing, branding and manufacturing electronic products and distributes them for resale across the world. The company was initially incorporated in the state of Delaware but holds a branch in
EMPLOYMENT ISSUES2the small eastern European country of Serafini. Max Ciccone, the company’s Human Resources Director, recently received formal complaints from Elena and Viktor, two of the Serafini local national executives. Elena and Viktor are stating their wages and benefits are not equivalent to eight other members of the company’s executive board. Max has responded to the complaints stating the differentiation in salary and benefits is due to the limited experience and qualifications that Elena and Viktor hold. Both have argued saying their qualifications are equivalent to three US board members. Both Elena’s and Viktor’s claims have been verified to betrue.To respond to the situation, NBD is planning to send two US citizens, Michael and Beth, to fill the positions that Elena and Viktor are currently holding. Michael has experience through serving in an executive position for another Colossal subsidiary with international branches. Bethhas fifteen years of management experience. Work permits have been filed for, although NBD is having difficulty obtaining the permits from Serafini’s labor office. Serafini has different laws and requirements regarding employment and therefore the work permits have not been approved.This report will analyze the ethical and legal perspectives of the case along with an analysis of how this scenario would be different had it been taking place in the US versus in Serafini.Ethical ViewsSince this case involves the unequal treatment of certain employees, the deontological view is the most appropriate method to analyze its ethicality. Deontology is the ethical view that examines actions based on their intent and righteousness rather than their results (UMGC, n.d. c).The inherent equality of all people is at the core of this ethical approach. The assessment criteria of the deontological approach, universality, comes from this belief in equality. For an action to beethical, it should universally benefit everyone every time. This consistency ensures that the costs
EMPLOYMENT ISSUES3and benefits of an action are equally shared. Actions must also be reversible when examined from this approach; that is, they must be acceptable by both the party making the decision as well
