The worker also criticized how much the CEO made and how the CEO was “out-of-touch.” Brenda reprimanded the worker. The next day, the worker talked to her fellow co-workers about forming a union. Brenda subsequently fired the worker.
  • Jason, a department supervisor, requests approval to fire his secretary. Alice, his secretary, a devout Christian woman, was putting out Right-to-Life flyers in the employee break room. Alice was also taking time out to pray each day during the busiest time of the morning.
  • Brian, head of Accounting, refused to sign Lori’s leave request for jury duty. Lori is a tax attorney in his department. Brian wants to fire Lori for being absent without permission during their most busy time – tax season.
  • Peter has worked for the company for 1 year. He has a rare form of liver disease and works with chemicals that make his condition worse. Peter does not want to stop working but his boss is not happy with his performance and wants to let him go.
