What should a manager with a multinational corporation do when his employee confides that he may have accidentally killed someone? The plant where they work is located in Vietnam; the employee, a native, is hesitant to face the charges given his concerns about the fairness of the local legal system. He is seeking both advice and help. The B case (UVA-E-0324) updates the situation and provides additional fodder for discussion.

Learning Objectives

To wrestle with the balance of a range of competing considerations, including personal loyalty, protecting a key company asset, upholding justice, and respecting local laws and larger notions of fairness, as well as managing your reputation within the community
