Task Description ________________________________________ Today’s business environment requires leaders to have competency in effective organization design and to consider legal factors that influence whether strategic goals are achieved. In this task, you will discuss legal entity types and their influence on taxation, liability, and ownership and control. You are also asked to discuss the legal and ethical obligations that an employer and employees have in a business context. Scenario ________________________________________ A local farmer and a supermarket retailer plan to enter into a business venture to open a downtown farmers market every weekend from April through October. The goal of the farmer’s market is to bring fresh organic produce to an area of the city that would not otherwise have access to organic fruits and vegetables. The retailer would like to have more decision-making authority in order to control the marketing and ownership of the warehouse space that will host the farmer’s market. The local farmer is concerned about the financial impact of having a primary stake in ownership because excessive rain in the past two seasons resulted in decreased profits. The retailer has proposed they include outside investors in order to have access to capital and expertise that will help create distribution efficiencies. The local farmer would like to limit outside investors and external decision-making influence in the business. The retailer has identified plans for growth and would like to start by offering the products that the local farmer grows (20 stalls) and then double the number of stalls offered each year by adding other organic options from regional farmer’s markets to build sustainable networks. The retailer has proposed organizing the farmer’s market venture as a corporation, while the local farmer has recommended organizing as either a limited liability company or a general partnership. Two years after the retailer and local farmer established the farmer’s market, more regional farmers are providing produce every weekend. The retailer and local farmer have hired general managers with extensive experience in organic retail sales and promotion. The retailer requires that some of the managers work overtime on the first Saturday of each month so that new products can be staged and merchandised before the market opens. The retailer does not pay overtime to the managers, citing the overtime as management training that is an investment in future career development. The female managers are always the ones required to do this extra work even though they have similar levels of experience to the male managers. On the first Saturday in May, the general managers identify substandard produce that has been damaged, is not ripe, and should not be sold, and they notify the retailer. The farmers will only get paid if the merchandise sells, so the retailer tells the general managers that they should display the products so that customers will not be aware of the low quality. The retailer also suggests that if the sales are not 10% higher than last week, the general managers may not receive a full day’s wages for that Saturday.
