You just completed the interviewing process for the position of Mental Health Counselor for an agency that serves children. One of the candidates clearly stood out in the job interviews, and an offer is being prepared. You contacted the candidateâ€™s previous employer to confirm dates of employment and title. Several months after you hired this candidate, an allegation of the employee’s inappropriate behavior toward a child is made. An investigation ensues. What charge does the employer need to be concerned about? How might this issue have been avoided? Explain your answers, and cite textbook page numbers.
The employers need to be concerned about being charged with negligent hiring as the company had not conducted a proper background check on the candidate before hiring who then is involved in a crime while on duty. When charged with negligent hiring, the court will investigate if the risk would have been discovered through a thorough background check, whether the nature of the job would cause more significant trouble, or , if the action was intentional.
The issue could have been avoided by conducting a thorough background check on the employee before hiring him. The employer could have also asked for an affidavit from witnesses who saw or heard any inappropriate behavior before making an employment decision.

You are conducting job interviews for the position of Mental Health Counselor. Assisting in the second interviews is the Vice President. She routinely asks candidates about the quality of their college preparation. One of the candidates graduated from University XYZ. The next candidate graduated from the same college as the VP. The VP rated the second candidate much more favorably than those from other schools. What aspects of Chapter 8 is present in this situation? Cite the concept as well as the text page number.
The aspects of chapter 8 present in this situation are Validity and reliability of measurement. The VP rated the second candidate favorably based on the university they attended rather than all their qualifications, such as their employment history, experiences, and qualities, such as their communication skills and posture. The name of the university the candidate attended does not predict their future performance in the job. The name of the university is not related to the job qualification. The university’s name doesn’t determine a candidateâ€™s Ability to handle the job.
The concept of Validity and reliability of measurement. This information is on page 251
The company you work for is expanding its business and is in the process of opening several clinical pharmacies. You were the first clinical pharmacist on-site at a new location; you and your pharmacy technician have been instrumental in getting the pharmacy (located within a hospital) set up and established. Two/three months later, a manager is hired and he will be over a number of the clinics, including yours. When hired, you were sold on the company’s commitment to moral, ethical, and legal behavior, and the company culture was seen as very positive, upbeat, and professional. The new manager has exhibited unethical as well as illegal actions in the short time he has been on the job, and to make matters worse, he is a micro-manager. What are some staffing issues that could result from this situation? What are any other issues from concepts or topics already covered in class that might be taking place? What needs to happen, in your teamâ€™s opinion, to â€œfixâ€ this issue?
Staff issues that could result from this situation are:
The Pharmacy technician and clinical pharmacist often feel like they have no input, making for poor working relationships.
The staff may feel compelled to engage in illegal actions if they feel they have no other options, but they are also likely to feel uncomfortable doing so if they know it is wrong or will get them fired.
Other issues that could result from this situation are since the new manager has neglected the companyâ€™s culture, the two employees will resent him, which will cause comfort in work. The employees, too, will lose morale to continue working.
In my opinion, the issue can be fixed by the staff writing a letter or talking to the board of directors or a board member of the clinical pharmacies explaining the bad behavior of the new manager.
