5.David Delmonico, the CEO and owner of Delmonico, Inc, where you are the Director of HR, has directed you as follows: “Fire everyone in the plant over age 55. They are costing me too much.

Paper over their work records so it looks like I fired them for good cause.” Do a short memorandum to the employer explain to him why, based on legal reasons, you recommend against this course of action.
