The answer to question #1- ...view middle of the document...

EMC has stated that there has not been any laws broken and that they treat each employee whether male or female equally. How can this be true when there are several women speaking up against this company? EMC should take responsibly for the crimes that were committed against these women.

Review/Analysis of the Case
      EMC violated several laws against the women working within their company. These women had every right to report the things going on a day to day basis. The women within EMC were expected to perform the same acts as the men when it came to catering their clients. A visit to the strip club and exposure to any form of sexual comment against their will is considered sexual harassment and discrimination. It is also against the law to retaliate against any employee both male and female when he or she has a complaint against the company. Huge accounts were taken from these women then given to the men as punishment for what they had done. This act alone created a hostile work environment for the women of EMC.   (Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart, & Wright, 2009). 

      EMC will probably experience some client loss but not much because the men make up the vast majority within this company. With that being said, EMC will still continue to sell aggressively because the clients don’t mind the entertainment provided to no cost to them. However, EMC will not be able to avoid the charges filed against them because the lawsuit has asked that 30 sworn affidavits be admitted as evidence to support the accusing women’s claims. The only way the conflict can be resolved is for EMC to do what is morally and.
