  • Sleep Tight Inn scenario:


The Sleep Tight! Resort and Conference Center of Albuquerque, N.M.  has a staff of over 300 full time employees and 100 seasonal employees  in 10 different job categories. For the past twenty-five years the  resort has been run by the Clause family. The Clause family has had  experience in running several small motels and were very knowledgeable  of the industry. 

However, while they tried to treat the employees  fairly, Mimi Clause, the Manager, knew nothing of proper HR practices  and tended to make arbitrary decisions. She left many of the HR  decisions to the employment department which consisted of a secretary  and an employment supervisor who had been a secretary for Mimi’s mother.  Eighteen months ago, the family decided to hire Frank Jones as the new  Manager of the resort.

After evaluating the current operations, Frank Jones, decided that  the Resort was in fairly good shape except for the lack of standardized  Human Resource practices. Very little information existed to support any  of the past employment decisions, especially in the area of selection.  Although Jones does not have any direct experience in HR, he had taken  several courses in HRM while in college.

In the last eighteen months, Jones has encountered several problems. He would like you to:

  • Evaluate the situation and identify the problem
  • Include short bullet point recommendations for each 

Questions: Answer both


4A:  Mr. Jones knows that the resort is covered by the Immigration  Reform and Control Act but that Mimi Clause did not follow the law. He  specifically wants to know what must be done to comply with the law.  What should be done about the lack of records on the current employees?  What should be done if he finds employees who cannot meet the legal  requirements?

4B:  In the past the Resort has used a simple selection process.  Applicants for vacancies complete an application blank that is screened  by the secretary. The employment supervisor or the department manager  then interviews the successful applicants. In some instances departments  used additional tests which were developed at the Resort. The  employment supervisor maintains some background information but not on a  consistent or structured basis. Mr Jones wants to know if we can use  the tests created at the Resort and how to make them more legally  defensible?
