To compute the estimated monthly increase in the manpower expenses. B. To account for the net increase in employee benefits and wages. C.

C. Do not tell the employees about the latest minimum wage legislation. D. Try to formulate cost efficient production processes to minimize production cost. E. Give rewards and incentives for better production and sales. IV. Evaluation A. Compute the estimated monthly increase in manpower expenses and adjust the prices of the products to cover the expenses. 1. Advantage: You are able to comply with the legal requirements and to provide your employees with salary increases. 2. Disadvantage: The price hike or increase makes your products less affordable to the general public. You may lose a number of customers. B. Hire and bribe a Certified Public Accountant to falsify the appropriate financial instruments. 1. Advantage: You will be able to save money and trick stakeholders and the government for your personal gain. 2. Disadvantage: If youll get caught, your business may turn down its operations and youre life will end up in prison. Even if you dont get caught, youre conscience will probably ran after you.

C. Do not tell the employees about the latest minimum wage legislation. 1. Advantage: You will be able to save money and they will not go on strikes because they dont know this as of now. 2. Disadvantage: But in the long run, if they discover this, they may lose your trust on you, file a case against you and your business may turn down its operations and youll lose lots of money. D. Try to formulate cost efficient production processes to minimize production cost. 1. Advantage: Youll be able to lower your production cost; thus, save money. 2. Disadvantage: However, the quality or the products may be compromise if the change in production process doesnt leave up to the original standards. E. Give rewards/incentives to workers 1. Advantage/s:Motivate the workers to improve production, thus, may induce the possibility of decreasing overtime works. Lessen overtime pay since they receive incentives. Greater performance. Disadvantage/s:Employees tend to be dependent on the rewards/incentives they will be receiving, thus, lessening their performance. Increase expenses. Bias in rewarding 3. Training the staff

V. Recommendation

We recommend A, D, and E. Just be fair. Do not consider falsifying documents as a solution to the problem caused by the Republic Act. Also, do not even think about trying to trick your employees and workers. Human resources are the most important assets of a business. Take the risk of increasing product prices because if you dont, another problem will certainly arise; operating losses also. Consider the reality that expenses are part of income. Just make sure that youre spending your money on the things worth spending for. One good example is giving your employees the salary increase they deserve. This will obviously make them happy and motivate their job performance. The quality of your products reflects the image of your business. You have to balance effectiveness and efficiency. Develop innovative ideas to attend more customers. VI. Conclusion Compute the necessary adjustments or increases on the expected manpower expenses of your business and make sure this conforms to the legal requirements stated by the law.
