John Smith, VP of HR at Lamp Electronics is sitting scratching his head over the conversation he had with Joe Group describing what had transpired in the finance department. Joe had been preparing the sales revenues reports for the past five years as the company is required to report to the SEC to issue public and profit forecasts. Lamp has always been high producing and has experienced a decline; hence, the share price has declined.
Joe told John that he had been instructed to use a different and more aggressive accounting method for forecasting and calculating projected sales revenue for the coming year. Joe believed that this approach could mislead the shareholders regarding actual performance. The past CFO was rather conservative in the approach; however, a new CFO, Bob, was hired earlier this year after not obtaining a promotion for a competitor. Bob was perceived as a go getter, smart, and someone to make a positive mark on the company. When Joe pointed out that the accounting practices were different than Lamp’s traditional practices, Bob, the CFO said that he was the new CFO and had a different approach. Bob proceeded to tell Joe that sales would turn around and the company is justified reporting higher expected sales revenue in the upcoming months. Bob also mentioned that Joe should want the stock to go up and do well. As Joe continued to question, Bob told him to do his job as instructed. Since then, Joe felt that Bob had become hostile towards him and that there was a change in the relationship. Despite his fears, he felt he had to go to HR for advice. HR intuitively suspected that Joe was worried about Bob finding out about meeting.
This information disturbed HR. What should HR do? What rights and protections do whistle blowers have in the workplace today? What about the hostility? Do employees have rights regarding being treated hostile in the workplace?

Forgiveness is key to a healthy marriage and self-awareness is the first step to offering forgiveness. Consider Worthington’s “injustice gap” experiential theory as an explanation for the impact a personal offense has on an individual (p. 121). Now consider his concepts of “decisional forgiveness” and “emotional forgiveness” as desired goals of the forgiveness process. How might these concepts bring self-awareness that could serve a person’s ability to forgive their spouse? What key points of resistance do you predict would challenge an individual’s ability to offer both forms of forgiveness to their mate?
Session 8: User Interface Design
1. Create a detail report that will display all SCR courses in alphabetical order, with the course name and the instructor name in a group header; the Social Security number, name, and telephone number of each current student in the detail section; and the student count in group footer.
2. Create a switchboard design with control buttons that lead to students, instructors, courses, course schedules, and course rosters. Allow a user to add, update, or delete records in each area. Jesse wants to see storyboards that show the proposed screens.
3. Suggest data validation checks for data entry screens.
4. Create a source document for an SCR mail-in registration form. Also need a design for a Web-based course registration form.
