The Emerald Series: Segment 3: A Moving Target
In the third segment of our series, Emily leaves Mr. Grumble's employment to work for Ms. Ner-Vess at her I.T. consulting firm. Unfortunately, Emily encounters a hostile work environment, but Ms. Ner-Vess is afraid to investigate the complaint, as she is concerned that the alleged harasser may quit and the investigation might disrupt office morale. During this same timeframe, some workers decide to organize a union campaign. Ms. Ner-Vess, fearful of violating the NLRA, does not oppose the workers' efforts, which leads to the company becoming a union shop. When a group of employees leave, they also take her client list and business strategy for consulting. This time, however, Ms. Ner-Vess finds the courage to enforce the agreements.
