“It’s just a shame,” said Marie. “William always came in early, stayed late if he needed to finish something, asked for very little and treated others with respect. He was a model to the work force apart from this.”

“We understand. That can be very tough to have to place a valued employee on suspension, especially when it comes to one you have known for a long time,” said HR Director Mike Lam.

It’s true, thought Marie. She had become friends with William’s wife, Melissa, at the company holiday party.

“We are going to conclude everything by the end of next week. That way, we can post the job quickly if needed and help you make the best of a difficult situation,” said Lam.

“Thank you again,” said Marie. “What happens for right now?”

“We’re still discussing that,” said Smith. “This is a bit of a new situation, so we are talking about our current hiring policies, as well as security systems that can alert us faster next time. We know we need to make some changes, but we’re still figuring it all out.”

“Let me know if I can help,” said Marie.

“Of course,” said Karun. “You have been very helpful so far, and we really appreciate it.”
Marie rose from her chair and exited the room. Her stomach was upset and her palms sweated.

Karun looked at his staff members, privately reflecting in gratitude that he had such valuable employees.

“Poor William,” said Veronica.

“It had to be done,” said Karun with a frown.


Is Karun correct? Or has the company made a mistake?
