You are the Director of Human Resources for the internet matchmaking company, "People, people who need people.com". In recent months, your company has been sued by three employees who were laid off based on information in their performance appraisals. These employees have alleged that their performance appraisals did not accurately reflect their work and were based on inaccurate interpretations of work performance by the managers who prepared the appraisals. One employee has won her case and two others are currently pending in court.

You have done some preliminary analysis and have discovered the problems lie not in your administrative processes, but in how your managers rate and measure their employee’s performance. Before you can take any corrective actions (training, etc.), it will be important for you to identify specific problems and come up with solutions that will help prevent those problems from reoccurring.

For this project you need to use your textbook, the full-text database in the Libray, and/or other internet resources and prepare a research paper that incorporates the following:

1. Identify and describe at least 4-6 problems that occur when managers complete performance reviews. Since the focus of our class is on decision making, focus on problems that relate to decision issues in your findings.

2. Provide specific suggestions for each of the problems you identified so that supervisors can eliminate or reduce each of the problems identified. Try to avoid "general" recommendations as they rarely cover or help correct all the problems you will identify.

• Examine the anatomy of a decision.

• Frame a decision.

• Recognize situations that present potential ethical and legal issues and develop solutions for those issues.
