HRM-Related Ethics Activities (cont’d)Performance Appraisal Appraisals that make it clear that the company adheres to high ethical standards by measuring and rewarding employees who follow those standards. Reward and Disciplinary Systems The organization swiftly and harshly punishes unethical conduct. Workplace Aggression and Violence Taking care that HR actions do not foster perceptions of inequities that translate into dysfunctional behaviors by employees. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.
Discipline Without Punishment (Nonpunitive Discipline)Issue an oral reminder. Should another incident arise within six weeks, issue a formal written reminder, a copy of which is placed in the employee’s personnel file. Give a paid, one-day “decision-making leave.” If no further incidents occur in the next year, then purge the one-day paid suspension from the person’s file. If the behavior is repeated, the next step is dismissal. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.

Managing Dismissals Dismissal Terminate-at-Will RuleInvoluntary termination of an employee’s employment with the firm. Terminate-at-Will Rule Without a contract, the employee can resign for any reason, at will, and the employer can similarly dismiss the employee for any reason (or no reason), at will. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.
Avoiding Wrongful Discharge SuitsBases for Wrongful Discharge Suits Discharge does not comply with the law. Discharge does not comply with the contractual arrangement stated or implied by the firm via its employment application forms, employee manuals, or other promises. Avoiding Wrongful Discharge Suits Set up employment policies and dispute resolution procedures that make employees feel treated fairly. Do the preparatory work that helps to avoid such suits. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.
Termination AssistanceOutplacement Counseling A systematic process by which a terminated employee is trained and counseled in the techniques of conducting a self-appraisal and securing a new job appropriate to his or her needs and talents. Does not imply that the employer takes responsibility for placing the person in a new job. Is part of the terminated employee’s support or severance package and is often done by specialized outside firms. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.
Interviewing Departing EmployeesExit Interview Its aim is to elicit information about the job or related matters that might give the employer a better insight into what is right—or wrong—about the company. The assumption is that because the employee is leaving, he or she will be candid. The quality of information gained from exit interviews is questionable. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.
The Plant Closing Law Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (1989) Requires employers of 100 or more employees to give 60 days notice before closing a facility or starting a layoff of 50 people or more. The law does not prevent the employer from closing down, nor does it require saving jobs. The law is intended to give employees time to seek other work or retraining by giving them advance notice of the shutdown. © 2008 Prentice Hall, Inc. All rights reserved.
