On July 30, 2009, an employee of KeyBank found himself fired from his job two days after he had prevented an attempted robbery at the bank by confronting the would-be-robber and overpowering him.
Questions for Discussion:
1. Jim Nicholson was able to prevent the robbery and save the people in the bank from potential harm. Do you think the end justified the means in this case - did Nicholson do the right thing in confronting the would-be bank robber?
2. Did KeyBank do the right thing in firing Jim Nicholson? Would a warning or suspension have been better disciplinary action?
