27. Trying to fire an employee like this can end a manager's career and expose the manager to liability
Terminating an employee in a protected class is very dangerous. Unless the termination done very carefully, with all procedures following the book and carefully documented and corrobarated, an employee in a protected class can easily get the manager fired, as well as bring a lawsuit for damages against the manager. This could end the manager's career and impoverish his family. Higher managers will not protect the manager responsible for terminating the employee, and will hang him out to dry to save their own skin.

I'm really surprised that they had group meetings that discussed this. I'd be appalled if anyone made a written record of them.
