1. What are the major problems with the Darby appraisal system? Make specific recommendations for changing the system supporting your rationale with credible references.

2. Suppose the firm wants to use the current form for employee feedback (i.e., to provide feedback to employees on their strengths and weaknesses). Do you think the instrument will be useful for this purpose? Why or Why not? What if any, revisions would you suggest so that the form can be used for employee development? Support your responses and rationale with credible references.

3. Suppose Darby has used this form to both promote and make merit pay adjustments. Suppose also that Darby has been informed that six African Americans have claimed discrimination based on promotion and pay policies. What (if any) advice can you give the company? What specific data should Darby evaluate in the context of these claims? Support your responses and rationale with credible references.

Use each question posed as a section header in the paper. Support your claims using a minimum of (4) credible sources, in addition to the textbook. In-text citations and references must be included in your paper. Use APA formatting guidelines. The paper is limited to 5 pages.
