ase According to Thomas Paine, “A person commits an error by not reflecting far enough”. Perhaps this is the best aphorism that is applicable in the case of Mr. Jose Naguimbing. For he seemed to be acting out of his impulses without even taking into consideration the worst repercussion that might arise out of his decision which is wanting of intellectual or wise discretion.
Mr. Jose Naguimbing succeeded his brother Pedro as a General Manager of Jona Car Rental, which was very profitable when the latter turned it over to the former. However, things began to change by the time the business has been handled by Pedro’s brother Jose. The staff has been skeptical of Jose’s capability to competently and effectively discharge his duties as the …show more content…
In addition, the staffs’ suspicion was justified after three months, the revenues of the branch plummeted drastically. As opposed with a competitor within the area, the performance of the branch manager was dismal. Business is not a one-man job it does not mean that just because he is the boss he is the only one who is supposed to be obeyed in every decision he imposes. Involvement of the employees in the decision-making, or in a way of saying teamwork, trust and confidence to the employees, a character of the leader worthy of emulation and respect, are the fundamental principles for the success of a business.
Now, involvement of the team; inasmuch as it does not mean that just because he is the boss he will be the sole source of all the things that are supposed to be undertaken by the business for the furtherance of its improvement and growth. A leader says “we”, a boss says “I”, hence the boss should not act like someone whose authority and nature is beyond any fallibility. In Bontia v. NLRC (96).
“The rule is well settled that labor laws discourage interference with an employer’s judgment in the conduct of hid business. Even as the law is solicitous of the welfare of the employees, it must also protect the right of an employer to exercise what are clearly management prerogatives. As long as the company’s

After having a very successful performance and getting second place on the first Littlefield simulation game we knew what we needed to do to win the second simulation game.

The leader said: ‘I do not see myself as a boss, I see the team as my co-worker, we all joining the team together to go to the same goal. I think it is important
On the evening of January 5, 1993, Tracie Reeves and Molly Coffman, both twelve years of age and students at West Carroll Middle School, spoke on the telephone and decided to kill their homeroom teacher, Janice Geiger. They agreed that Coffman would bring rat poison to school the following days so that it could be placed in Geiger 's drink. After that , they would steal Geiger 's car and drive to the Smoky Mountains. On the morning of January 6, Coffman placed a packet of rat poison in her purse and board the school bus. Coffman told another student, Christy Hernandez, of the plan and show her the poison. Hernandez went and informed her homeroom teacher, Sherry
Based on our learning from week one of our class, the purpose of this paper is to discuss the leadership perspectives manifested in both Bobby Knight and Mike Krzyzewski, coaches who have made significant marks in their field in college basketball. I hope to be able to identify the power bases both coaches rely upon, as well as whether their actions are more aligned with either a managerial role or leadership role. In addition, I hope to identify how significant the leadership traits have influenced their leadership, based on the five-factor
However, the ruling in this case and others like it prove that employers can, in fact, be bound by articles written in an employee handbook when disciplining or discharging an employee. An abysmally written handbook can greatly jeopardize an employer’s right to terminate at will. Trends show that courts are increasingly acknowledging enforceable promises in the past employment practices of firms, in employer handbooks and in oral commitments. In addition to including an at-will disclaimer in employee handbooks, employers should also require employees to sign an acknowledgment confirming that they understand and agree to employment-at-will and that at-will employment can at any time be modified by a written agreement. Personnel manuals should explicitly state that the employer reserves the right to terminate employment at will. All written policies should also be free of any language that could be considered as a guarantee of job security. To be sure that these common pitfalls are avoided employers must retain the service of a labor attorney to draft and air-tight employee manual and acknowledgment
This issue reflects a problem with Assignment of Authority and Responsibility factor of the internal environment. COSO suggest faster response times can enhance competitiveness and customer satisfaction. This upper management did not take any action means he did not comply with his duty.
Jacquelyn Young hired the law firm of Becker & Poliakoff to represent her in her federal employment discrimination lawsuit against her employer. The firm associate that filed the action made a mistake by attaching the wrong U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) right-to-sue letter. The court dismissed the claims. The law firm did not try to re-file using the correct attachment, or try to dismiss the motion. Thirteen months later, the law firm informed Young that the claims had been dismissed, and that the firm was withdrawing from representing her further with the case.
When we are dealing with the employment relationship between employers and employees, ethical issues are most likely to emerge. Especially, if a manager fires a worker without a proper reason, critics will follow this employer’s behavior. In Patricia Werhane’s paper, “Employment at Will and Due Process”, discusses two doctrines which are Employment at Will (EAW) and Due Process. It also addresses some justifications and objections for EAW, and shows Werhane’s supportive view to Due Process. In contrast, EAW is defended by Richard Epstein in his article “In Defense of the Contract at Will”. In my paper, I will attempt to develop my argument in favor of Employment at Will that could improve flexibility and efficiency of
In the case of “Thomas Green: power, office politics, and a career in Crisis”, it describes the dilemma of Thomas Green who works in a company called Dynamic Display. Thomas was recruited as an account executive, and then five months later, he was promoted as a Senior Market Specialist directly by the President Shannon McDonald. Thomas’s boss Frank Davis hadn’t expected to choose Green as the new senior market specialist, and he was very dissatisfied with Green’s work style and performance three months after the promotion. After being informed that Frank Davis had emailed McDonald about his concerns about Green’s performance, Green was getting really worried about his situation and not sure how to explain his perspective to
2. Can an employer unilaterally impose a grooming rule over the objections of its employees or their bargaining agent?
The communication flow from this point is then one way as determined by the autocratic style and the decision can be implemented throughout the rest of the organisation. There are also many negative attributes with the style of decision making however as the subordinates of Yellow Auto have not been included in the decision making process they may not be as motivated to implement the decisions made by the top managers. This is exacerbated in the case study as this decision to increase the market share of the company is risky due to the economic situation in Turkey. Turkey had experienced a financial crisis in both 2000 and 2001 the latter being ‘particularly far reaching in terms of its impact, resulting in a major collapse of output and employment’ (Onis, 2006). Accepting this level of risk without the consult of other employees can increase uncertainty within the company and cause employees to feel segregated from the company. Furthermore the use of a small group in this decision making process has the potential of experiencing the Abilene paradox (Harvey in Teale, 2003:290) in which some top managers may not voice their concerns to avoid being discredited or appear to lose faith in the organisation. In order to identify and address these potential issues management of Yellow Auto decided to work with academics in the implementation of this decision.
In this case, we have really two different points of view: in one side, there is Philip Anderson, the Phoenix branch manager of Stuart & Co., who manages a team with his ways, his idea, his experience but the results do not reach the targets fixed by the firm. In the other side, there is the direction of Stuart & Co., which has opposite ideas to Philip Anderson.
