As a manager and supervisor of an accounting department, describe the given issues associated to the employment-at-will doctrine and liability of an employer based on the actions and responses to the employee's behavior and actions. Jennifer, a recent graduate, has recently been hired by your accounting firm out of college. Upon being hired, she engages in a number of various behaviors which require your attention.
For each category of behavior, describe what steps you would take to address the condition.
prepare down a four to five page paper in which you:
1) describe what steps you would take to address the given scenario involving skills, competence, and abilities:
The employee seems to be not able to learn the computer applications which are basic to her job responsibilities, however, consistently "tells" her boss that she is "a good worker and a genius" and that he doesn't "appreciate her". Even after a few months of training and support, she is not able to use the computer tools to be productive and proficient in completing the required tasks.
2) describe what steps you would take to address the given scenario comprising management, behavior and performance:
The employee tends to burst to a rage when criticized and is often late to work as noticed by her boss and other staff members. Whenever her boss attempts to address her behavioral issues and the company late policy, the employee's response is that she "knows her rights and what to do" if she is wrongfully discharged. She too says she took a business law class in undergrad that taught her "everything she requires to know about exceptions to the employment-at-will doctrine and wrongful discharge in the violation of public policy".
