Shortly after the commencement of the term, it was made clear to Kramer by some of his Caucasian colleagues that he was not welcome.

- Question : (TCO A) Pugh worked for See's Candies, Inc. for 32 years. He had started out as a dishwasher, worked his way up to vice president of production, and was also on the Board of Directors. When he was hired, he was told by the president and general manager, "If you are loyal and do a good job, your future is secure." The president had a policy of only terminating employees for good cause, and that policy was continued by his successor. During the entire period of Pugh's employment, his performance had never been formally evaluated or criticized, and he was never denied a raise or bonus. After the company had set sales records for the Christmas and Valentine's Day seasons, Pugh was called into the president's office and told that he was fired. He was not given a reason for his discharge, but he suspects that he was fired because he objected to the sweetheart relationship that the company had with the union representing its workers. Does Pugh have a cause of action for wrongful discharge? If so, what could the company have done to minimize exposure?
