When it comes down to the legal and ethics challenges on Nivea conducting business in Thailand there are not too many strings attached. The biggest ethical issue that Thailand is facing is HIV affects its population. Nivea still has to abide by international laws of human rights while conducting businesses in Thailand and abroad. This could affect Nivea because it could cost the company extra money for medical benefits for their employees.
Nivea cannot discriminate against a person applying for a job just because he or she is HIV positive. DEERS could possibly get around the issue by only offering a limited medical coverage to all employees. The challenges arising are the possibility that too many employees will call in sick at one time and there will not be enough coverage to make or ship out the deliveries in a timely manner. Nivea has to make sure that they have enough people on their payroll to cover when they fall short.
The challenge for Nivea is that the company has to hire dependable, responsible, and self-starter people who will get the job done under any circumstances. The legal challenge is the matter of employing someone that is HIV positive more than an individual with no health problems. Nivea will try to limit the workload to those persons that have certain medical conditions to where they are limited on how much they can lift and carry. Nivea will also pay close attention to any other special needs.
Unfortunately, this is a big issue in Thailand due to its population size. Ultimately, Nivea will provide a workable cosmetic products including sun screen soap throughout Thailand in expectations to go on to further areas. Quite a few things can disrupt the flow of supply. Companies are responsible for providing a workable solution to fix the problem(s), and gain the reputation for being considered a successful organisation that can make a difference and will provide resolution.
