Employment Conflict Management
FastServe Inc is a 25 million dollar business of well-known sports attire just opened two online advertising sites which mainly focus on kids that love sports. It has 350 workers; FastServe operated 10% of its personnel to the online allocation development. There were certain mannequins that were used which involved the consideration of the proposed viewers but there was one issue with the graphics. It was too hard to get and the prices didn’t cover the functioning expenses of the new process. The upper level supervisors implemented all concepts and without a raise in income they determined to not use this plan.
So then they decided on lowering the labor force. This would entail conducting layoffs for three out of five workers. Of the five, two will be kept in the business. This business has to implement the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) technique to determine conflicts, establish a well developed organized layoff process and moderate the risks to lower the likelihood of any issues that may bring about an employment lawsuit. The metrics for the layoffs include new job descriptions, abilities, responsibility, skills, and efficiency.

McCullough University of Phoenix The Three Encounters 2 The Three Encounters of NewCorp FastServe Inc. is a 25 million dollar branded sports Apparel Company with an employee roster of 350 people working in the company in direct marketing. The company has two online marketing and distribution channels which they opened up for boys and girls. They now moved 10 percent of the workforce to manage the online distribution. In the simulation it states that technology began to pose problems for FastServe Inc. soon after the website went live. FasteServe inc. wanted their target audience to be Generation Y and although the 3-D ‘drape-n- see” mannequins on the site attracted that market it was hard for them to download from the site causing people not to buy any items from the site. This then became a problem which made it hard for technological investors to be feasible. Since this form of selling the merchandise was not working FastServe Inc. decided to move out of online distribution. The fallout of this decision was expected and the online division had to be downsized. Now the only thing to do is to keep employees based on their job performance and skill levels and give them a new job definition. All other employees will have to be released. The senior Management in the Human Resources department has to consider the legal implications of the decisions of the company....

...Conflict Management Techniques Roxanne Martz University of Phoenix Instructor Kenneth Hadzinski November 1, 2010 Employment Conflict Management FastServe Inc, a 25 million dollar company of branded sports apparel, recently opened two online marketing venues geared toward sports enthusiastic youth. With 350 employees, FastServe directed 10% of its workforce to the online distribution project. Using today’s technology, three D ‘Drape-n-see’ mannequins, attracted the attention of the intended audience, but the graphics were difficult to download and sales made didn’t cover the operating expenses of the new project. Management weighed all options and without an increase in revenue, decided to pull the plug on the project. In doing so, a reduction in the workforce was imminent. This would mean layoffs for three out of five employees. Of the five, two will be absorbed into the company. The metrics for the layoffs are based on new job definitions, skill sets, accountability, past performance, and productivity.

Legal Issues in Reduction of Workforce

...Running head: LEGAL ISSUES IN REDUCTION OF WORKFORCE Legal Issues in Reduction of Workforce Clotee Lewis University of Phoenix August 25, 2008 Legal Issues in the Reduction of Workforce FastServe Inc. is a $25 million dollar company with a workforce of 350 employees involved in the direct marketing of branded sports apparel. The company has decided to move out of online distribution because the transactions no longer justify the online division. A few employees will be retained based on past performance and skill level, while others must be released. Cutting costs is the primary reason for FastServe's recent reduction of workforce decisions, and legal issues have come into play. Increased competition and rapidly developing technologies are leading companies to make innovations in how they operate, organize work, and manage people. As employers increasingly take advantage of new technology they are finding the need to restructure staff. These changes present legal challenges and risks for human resources; however, with proper planning the potential for incurring charges of discrimination or other employment law issues can be anticipated and avoided. This paper identifies the key concepts of employment law that would affect the five employees; the extenuating regulatory circumstances; the agency principle as it relates to self-interest and the interests of the organization; and balance of legal risk of terminated employees.

Employee Conflict Management

...selected Brian, Sarah, and Jenny for a lay off. After I selected these employees for layoffs, I was given several options regarding how to deal with the issue. With Jenny, three of the four options did not require laying her off. They also dealt with her pregnancy, which would have presented an issue. I selected “Layoff Mills: People with non-critical skills need to go anyway.” This was a satisfactory option. Next, with Sarah, two of the options involved moving her to another department and training her in another job. I did not feel that these options would be satisfactory to the company or to Sarah. I selected “Tell Boyd and her supervisor that layoffs in Dispatch are inevitable; work out a severance package that is acceptable to Boyd and FastServe.” This, too, was a good decision. Last, with Brian, three of the four options involved his injury. The last option was “Layoff Carter since his VC++ expertise will be redundant with the plug being pulled on the Web sites.” I did not remember seeing information about this redundancy. However, if a redundancy is present, his position would not be vital. I selected this option. This was also a reasonable suggestion. Laying-off or terminating an employee can be a risky situation for a business. If a situation is not handled correctly, the organization may have to deal with a lawsuit for unlawful termination for discrimination reasons. Keeping up on employment policies, keeping records and excellent documentation, and seeking legal......

Situaciones como estas pueden provocar una crisis interna, por lo que las decisiones a tomar deben considerar medidas razonables, ya que pueden traer implicaciones legales.
