Employee Rights and Property Searches
In January 2011, Mopak Corporation hired a security company to search all the vehicles in its parking lot for drugs and guns. The security company’s officers also used five drug detection dogs. Guns were found in several vehicles, but no drugs were found. The corporation believed that all employees whose vehicles had weapons violated the company policy that prohibited the possession of weapons at the workplace. Because of the search, the Mopak terminated five employees and ten contract workers. The employees and contract workers immediately sued the corporation for wrongful termination.
Based on the situation, answer the following questions:
· What arguments can the employees and contract workers make in their suit?
· What arguments will Mopak Corporation make in response to the suit for wrongful termination?
· Which party will win and why?
Submit your answers in a 3- to 4-page Microsoft Word document.
