Case #7 Essay

662 words - 3 pages

Bill Young was new an all-around mechanic and electrician that were recently hired by the hospital. He had no supervisor experience at all, but he did have 15 years’ experience in at his craft. As soon as he was hired a maintenance helper position became available. Young asked Human resource for help on finding candidates for the job. Being that Young he had little experience interviewing, his chief supervisor officer decided to sit in on the interview to help out. There were 5 candidates for interviewing; and 2 who were qualified for the job. One person, Simmons, worked in food services with experience and was trying to improve or better himself. The other person, Kelly, did not have any previous experience but did work in building and grounds at a school.
Jackson the chief supervisor decided to Hire Kelly, without very much thought and decided to communicate the job offer to Kelly personally. He told Young that he ...view middle of the document...

Usually if a manager does not want to deal with firing an employee they would refer hat employee to human resource. This is what Jackson should have suggested that young do. This is not show leadership. Young is a new supervisor and if he needed help hiring a new employee and of course he would need help letting an employee go for the first time.

2) In what other way could this situation been equitably handled?
If you do not have an HR department, you will need to be fully versed in the laws regarding termination. An HR consultant can provide useful help, tips, and information about laws related to employee termination for you and members of your management team
If employees are being fired for poor performance, you should warn them ahead of time that their work habits are not up to par. In some cases, you might want to provide feedback on what needs to be done to bring the employees’ performance in line with expectations. If these measurable goals are not met, then you might decide to terminate employees. If someone is fired due to performance, it is imperative to have a paper trail of performance reviews and printed warnings at the time of job termination. Firing someone is never easy, no matter what the reason. Even if you will be glad to see the back of an employee, the process can be difficult. You want to make sure that everything you do is in accordance with company policy, and in compliance with federal and state laws. You will protect yourself and your company if you follow proper protocol. (Smith, 2010)
3) What effect did the Kelly incident likely to have of the future relationship between Young and Jackson?
I think that the ‘Kelly” situation most defiantly cause some friction between Jackson and Young’s relationship. It made Young seems like he was incompetent and could not find or hire a good employee. But really it Jackson was the supervisor that made a bad decision with the bad employee hire. This situation might make Young feel like there was always someone watching over him. Telling him what he can and cannot do. It might make Young feel like, Jackson is a supervisor who will keep making mistakes and never own up to his own responsibility.
