The technology company you work for has had difficulties resulting from expert employees leaving the company after only six months to a year of employment. This turnover has caused client software projects to not be completed as scheduled. The CEO has turned to you as the HR Director to find out what is wrong and to recommend a remedy. You do some initial investigations only to find that employees at this level of expertise are working 60 hours a week or more on a regular basis. You are concerned not only for the business implications of this attrition problem but the ethical implications.
