Abstract

Charles Jackson, the Plant Manager at Eastern Plating, was confronted by a group of angry workers demanding that one of their co-workers, recently charged with molesting his own stepdaughter, not be allowed to return to work. The employees threatened violence if their co-worker was allowed to return, but company policy states that an employee charged with a crime must be allowed to continue working prior to a conviction. Jackson had to decide how he should handle this decision, trying to be sensitive to the individual accused as well as the rest of the outraged group.
