  5. 5. Question 1. Do you agree with the way Len handled the situation? Explain your answer.  No, As a HR manager, he should address his employee’s issues in a more constructive ways and on time. ◦ that is to prevent them from going on strike a ◦ And to safeguard the company to achieve its objectives and goals. Therefore, There should be a mutual agreement that is beneficial to both parties.
  6. 6. Question 2: What HR and ethical issues are raised in this case?  Bribery/ Fraud ◦ Is an act of giving money or gift that alters the behavior of the recipient, where the gift is of a dishonest nature. ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bribery) ◦ “It’ll cost you a couple of thousand.” ◦ “Look, if you can stop those two making trouble, I can spring a couple of grand off the record.”  Privacy Issues ◦ Privacy Issues to protecting a person’s private life from intrusive and unjustified actions.

  7. 7. Question 3: Identify the various stakeholders involved and their likely viewpoints.  A party that’ as an interest in an enterprise or project. The primary stakeholders in a typical corporation are investors, employees, customers and suppliers.  However, modern theory goes beyond the notion to embrace additional stakeholder such has community, government and trade associations.  The stakeholders included in this case are:  Len Goodmand on behalf of the management, investors and the company Would want the business to continue its normal day to day operation in order to reduce cost, increase productivity, profit and meet project deadline.  Workers Union and the Employees. Would want reasonable wages and keep their job. Their interest is that the company provides them with a good livehood. They seek security of employment, promotion and good rates of reward.
  8. 8. Recommendations  As an HR Manager, It would be an appropriate way to address those issues by seeking legal advice to settle the issue as the wild cat strike is an unofficial strike. ◦ It is unofficial because the union ( Federal Construction Workers Union) has no legal protection in these circumstances as and wishes to reduce the risk that an employer might successfully bring a damages claims against them for organizing the industrial action.  The HR Manager should discuss the issue thoroughly on time with the workers on factors that is a threat to their mutual relationship and how best their interest and demands be satisfied without delay.
