Many large companies delocalize their production and services due to low labour costs, low taxation, low cost of raw materials, etc. After the 90’s more and more American and Western European companies have found in Romania and in other Eastern countries, but also in Asia, investment opportunities and fertile ground for the relocation of their production and services. Romania's integration into the European Union contributed to this phenomenon. While the delocalization is equivalent with the creation of new jobs for East European and Asian countries, it is similar with the job cuts and layoffs for Western countries. The paper aims to study what the impact of delocalization is on the working relationships between the employees from Western countries that lose their jobs and the new employees from Romania, analyzing the actual situation of a transnational IT company. The article provides also methods for the resolution of the conflicts arising in the relationship between the mentioned employees.
