Key Assignment: Final Draft
The senior leaders at Matrix have asked your supervisor, Annalise, Director of Human Resources, to ensure that a formal document regarding your project of developing a new performance appraisal plan is ready in 1 week. What they want to see is all of the research that you have conducted regarding this process. They want to be fully informed and have again spoken about the trust that they have placed in you. This is quite a complement coming from this group.
Annalise speaks to you about this and praises you for following her 3 key guidance points that she provided to you last week. You developed a detailed Key Assignment first draft. You are very motivated by her comments and those of the senior leaders and are ready to complete this project.
Annalise notifies you that what you will now be preparing is your Key Assignment final draft. She states that you need to add some additional researched information to this document as requested by the senior leaders. This additional information must be detailed. This will be added to your previous document and would make your Key Assignment final draft, titled Comprehensive Performance Management Document. You definitely realize the significance of this assignment.

Ethical and legal dilemmas associated with “potential bias” within performance appraisal systems
Court case studies (e.g., Albemarle Paper Co. v. Moody)
Absence of adverse impact
Why formal evaluation criteria will ensure a reduction in rater bias and increase legal compliance
Submission of the Comprehensive Performance Management Document:
Review the entire document for any changes and improvements you would like to make.
Ensure this final version of the document is sufficiently detailed to fully meet the assignment requirements for each part of the course.
