Write an essay about 5 pages long with 12-point font, 1.5 spacing between lines, and
standard margins. Essays are due by the beginning of class on Friday, March 15. You
may submit a paper copy to me or email your essay to me as an attachment (at
firstname.lastname@example.org) but I must receive your essay, be able to open it, print it, and
be able to read it, by the deadline in real time, or it receives the late penalty (no
exceptions). Once I open and print your essay, I will respond to let you know I have it.
So, even if you sent it, but I did not receive it, by the deadline in real time, and it was
an electronic error that was the cause of my not receiving it, you still receive the late
penalty. The late penalty is: -10 points every 3 days your essay is late, no exceptions.
Essays are worth 100 points: 90 for content and 10 for grammar.
Prompt: Choose any 5 of the following 8 cases (A-H) below, and answer questions (I)
(II) for each case you chose, clearly and thoroughly. Do not use any outside
information but only what is given in this handout and our textbook to make your
argument about each case. (Many of the cases are real, but do not research any more
about them, even if you find out my report of the incident is somewhat inaccurate;
argue only about the case as I have presented it and use only the information about
what constitutes a legal or illegal firing I have given in this handout.)
