AbstractLaura Talbot has worked at CAS manufacturing for nearly 15 years and really enjoys her job. Recently she has been offered a very attractive position from a firm in another town. She seeks the advice of several good friends including you. Meanwhile, you have been serving on the long range planning committee for CAS, and you know that Laura's division is on the list of divisions to be potentially eliminated. The president of CAS has instructed the Committee that he wants this kept strictly confidential so that employee morale is not needlessly affected. Laura tells you she needs to make a decision about this new job offer in three days. Should you say anything to her when she asks for your advice?
