1. Performance evaluations are important tools for managing performance. However, they can also easily be mismanaged by supervisors and employees alike. The situation becomes more combustible when employees first do a self-evaluation followed by a formal evaluation from the supervisor.

Co. Sigma Inc. gives employees annual evaluations. The manager can rate each employee as Exceeds Expectations (EE), Meets Expectations (ME), Partially Meets Expectations (PE), or Horrible Employee (HE). Employee Bill turns in his self-evaluation and has himself as an EE in all ten performance categories. Supervisor Mary reviews the self-evaluation and is troubled. She believes he is an EE in two categories, but is an ME in six categories, a PE in one category, and an HE in one category. She wonders how such a disconnect could exist between how he views himself and reality.

  1. What do you think could have caused this disconnect?
  2. How should she go about remedying this situation?
  3. If she just goes ahead and gives him all EEs even though he does not deserve them, what problem(s) might this create?

2. How should employers deal with situations in which performance problems might be related to employees’ disabilities? Search the Internet for and review the Gambini v. Total Renal Care case. In that case, did the employer violate the ADA by terminating the disabled employee? What did the court decide? Do you agree with the court’s decision? Why, or why not?

3. A research analyst for the Indiana Department of Corrections was told that she would have to submit to a psychological examination in order to keep her job. She took the exam, which lasted two hours and contained many questions related to details of her personal life. She sued, claiming that the test violated her constitutional rights. What should the court decide (your opinion)? Why? After writing your initial thoughts, use the Internet to look up the case. What was the actual decision, and why? (Greenawalt v. Indiana Department of Corrections, 397 F.3d 587 [7th Cir. 2005])

4. Should an employee have an expectation of privacy relative to electronic communications when sending personal emails from the company computer? What if the employee used the company computer to access his/her own Yahoo email account; should the employee have a reasonable expectation of privacy regarding personal emails sent through his/her personal email? To take it a step further, should the employee have an expectation of privacy as it relates to text messages sent from a company issued Blackberry? Defend your response with references to at least two sources from the following: the textbook, court case(s), articles from reliable/authoritative authors.
