HU245 Employee Rights Case Study
Employee Rights Case Study
For seven years, Allen Lopez had worked for ExtremeNet, a well-known, global, high-technology
company that provides clients with Internet services such as e-commerce and Web development,
online marketing, strategic planning, and research. Allen was well paid and performed well in a
responsible middle-management position, which he found rewarding. However, as ExtremeNet
struggled to manage the effects of an economic downturn, Allen became disenchanted with the
company’s treatment of lower-level employees, including his own assistant. Among Allen’s concerns
were gender and age discrimination during layoffs, as well as changes to personnel policies that he
believed treated lower-level employees unfairly.
Allen’s frustrations grew after he raised his concerns in vain with his superiors. What he did next put
his career in jeopardy: Working at home over several weekends, Allen created and published on the
Internet a satiric website that inveighed against the abusive management practices of a fictional
company that bore a striking resemblance to ExtremeNet. The site gained some notoriety among
high- tech websites and in the business press.
The vice presidents of ExtremeNet were incensed to learn of the site’s existence and were concerned
that the site generated so much traffic and publicity. Although Allen protested that he acted out of a
sense of justice and asserted that his creative work was protected by his first amendment rights, this
did not prevent the leadership team of ExtremeNet from hastily assembling an emergency meeting to
decide whether Allen Lopez should be discharged, and whether ExtremeNet should file suit to have
his satirical website removed from the World Wide Web.
