Case Download – The Chairman’s Jokes


The case focuses on the identification of behavior that may constitute harassment or discrimination and application of an actual anti-harassment policy on the case scenario.




Thomas recently joined a French company as General Manager of its US operations. His immediate supervisor, the Chairman of the Board, displayed inappropriate behavior, such as telling offensive jokes with sexual, racist and discriminatory content in business and social settings. The behavior was known to the HR department and against company policy. The students should assess Thomas’s situation from legal, management and HR perspectives and consider parallels to the #MeToo Movement.
