Abstract

Marinda Vasquez, a senior branch officer for Linestat Corporation, and her boss, Ron Farrington, are faced with an unusual situation. Another of the branch's night managers, Derek Randle, a night technical services operator, has been observed in an inappropriate act after-hours in the company's boardroom. Statutes and precedents are presented relating to the incident, and the reader is tasked with determining a solution to the situation, deciding on appropriate managerial actions. The primary issue in this case involves the managerial response to an unusual exchange between two managers of Linestat Corporation. The case is appropriate for undergraduate management, human resources management, and business law courses. The case is designed to introduce students to the concepts of sexual harassment and be taught/discussed in a 45-minute time frame, and should require about an hour of outside preparation by students.
