Karen has been diverting her assignment responsibility for the past four weeks. She has missed critical team meetings and has not posted to the team forum in the past two weeks. Two team members Sabrina and Joseph contact Karen via email on two different days, and she responded back that she had been out of town on vacation. The team leader José reaches out to Karen regarding getting her portion of the assignment as well because the team assignment is due next week. Karen responds back to José stating that she is sick and is currently in the hospital.
After receiving her correspondence, José calls a mandatory team meeting to draft a Conflict Resolution Template and invites everyone to attend. Everyone but Karen shows up for the meeting. The team votes to complete Karen’s portion of the assignment and decides to submit the assignment without including Karen’s name on the completed team assignment cover page.
The team leader submits the completed team assignment along with the Conflict Resolution Template citing the issues the team had with Karen and negligence of her responsibilities and duties as a team member the day the assignment is due. He also posts both documents to the team forum. For the final grade, Karen did not receive an individual grade on the team assignment.
