...days, they offer a very competitive salary percentage increase year to year. If you read between the lines, this offer is not all that its worked up to be. For example, if the associate starts with a base salary that is below market level, they can realistically work for 5 years at the firm and not see more than the guanarteed fixed percentage increase. This perceived equity forces skilled employees to venture out for new opportunities knowing they have leverage. As a growing, medium sized firm, they need to engage in middle management implementation. Middle management is another source of structure that supports and facilitates the direction and operation of the firm.

I am telling myself that it is my responsibility to protect my rights. I deserve more salary. But, I believe that it would be a success. And I can accept to raise salary until I am familiar with all the business which might be within two months. And if it does not work, I might talk to Mrs. Zhang.

Risk Management

...a credit rating. There exists conflict of interest. So it increases the trouble of managers to foreacast the risk. The credit rating should be considered only one of the parts and can’t belive it wholly. During GFC, many companies went bankruptcy which include big international companies. Some of the companies also adopt the enterprise wide risk management to minimize risks and get more profits and the results were very sad to people because they went bankruptcy. Actually the global financial crisis is caused by many reasons. It can’t draw all the responsibility to the EWRM. We can’t lose confident on the EWRM. Though EWRM also has the weakness, we can improve it in the practial way. Corporate culture of EWRM Enterprise wide risk managenment is a new concept in the modern economy. Many managers and employees haven’t realized what the enterprise wide risk management is and how it works. So in my opinion, there are four steps to inculcate EWRM into corporate culture. First the management of company should built up a “risk-conscious culture”. “Risk-conscious culture” means every managers in companies should have consciousness to realize every risks would be existed during investment, operational or other business activities. Just as example in banking industry, when the banks give a loan to debtors, the managers should realize all the risks, like credit risk, loan risk, which will arise with the mortgage loan.

...| Question 16 Discuss the natural justice process in sport tribunals. Should athletes at either domestic or professional level be able to have legal representation? Natural justice process in sport tribunals In sport tribunals as in courts the laws of natural justice are applied to ensure that an accused person is given the right to a fair trial. Healy (2009, 114) confirms this and outlines the laws of natural justice in relation to sport tribunals as “giving the accused person protection by asserting that: * The person accused of misconduct should know the nature of the accusation made; * The person should be given the opportunity to state his or her case; and * The tribunal should act in good faith.” To further examine the natural justice process I will go into further detail of each of the above factors in relation to sporting tribunals. Notification of Accusation Once an organisation or association feels that there has been a breach of the rule or by-laws in which an individual is involved they must notify the accused in the correct manner to ensure procedure is adhered to with respect to natural justice. The Australian sports commission website ( gives an outline on the correct procedure for notifying the accused as follows: * “The person accused should receive written notice clearly outlining the allegation/s in sufficient detail so as to allow the person to properly prepare and respond. The notification should outline the...
