Assume that the organization for which you work has entered into the grievance process with a number of employees who dispute the recent disciplinary action taken against them. As the labor relations manager, it is your role to prepare the necessary documents, schedule the meetings, and notify the appropriate staff and union officials about the upcoming process. Ultimately, this process will encompass the first four (4) steps of a typical grievance process.
Create a twelve to fifteen (12-15) slide PowerPoint presentation in which you:
Outline the four (4) steps of the grievance process. Prepare a slide that designates the responsibilities of each party involved. Indicate which employment laws may govern this action. Recommend an outcome for the situation and note the ethical implications for your decision. Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:
Format the PowerPoint presentation with headings on each slide and three to four (3-4) relevant graphics (photographs, graphs, clip art, etc.), ensuring that the presentation is visually appealing and readable from 18 feet away. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. Include a title slide containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The title slide is not included in the required slide length. Follow these directions for submitting the PowerPoint: Submit your PowerPoint to the Week 10 Course Project dropbox (or other area designated by your professor.)
