You are an HR practitioner in a medium-sized company. One of your employees has demonstrated mediocre performance and a recurring attendance problem relating to her unreliable child-care situation. Your boss has had enough and has directed you to “divest” the organization of this “problem employee.”
Your boss requires a 2000-word briefing memo to senior management outlining two ways to “get rid” of the employee and a recommendation as to which option to pursue. Each option must carefully lay out the risks associated with it. You must also justify your recommendation.
