AbstractA former employee who was fired due to poor quality work, absences, and lateness due to her drinking problem, has given your name as a reference for a job she is applying for at a new company. She desperately needs this job (she is a single parent with three children)and asks you to give her a good recommendation and not mention her drinking, which she assures you she now has under control.
