GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONS | SPRING/SUMMER 2017
ennifer is your best
employee. She has earned
10 outstanding annual
performance reviews. Over
the years, we've learned
that Jennifer has two kids
and she's married to Joe. We've met Joe
at a couple of company social events.
Really, we know little about Jennifer's
family life. Turns out, Joe is a monster. He
beats Jennifer. He abuses the children.
Jennifer has sued for divorce. She's going
through an ugly custody battle. Jennifer
has secured a protection order against
Joe at home and your workplace.
But we know nothing of these troubles
because Jennifer doesn't bring family
drama to work. This morning, Joe shows
up at your reception carrying a huge
bouquet of flowers. Everyone thinks, "How
sweet." Knowing nothing of their troubles at
home, Joe gets immediate access to your
workplace. He goes down the hall, finds
Jennifer, drops the flowers, produces a
pistol and shoots Jennifer in the head.
