    Three Workplace Scenarios:

    HYPOTHETICAL EMAILS. One of the following may be chosen by the instructor:
    a) Your proposal went through introducing a new company rule, and now you are the proud owner of this new rule. Please send three different email messages to three different audiences introducing and explaining the new rule. Each message should be 100+ words.

    b) There was an incident report completed regarding someone getting hurt in your company. You need to send the incident report to three different audiences, summarizing what happened to them in three different ways. Each message should be 100+ words.

    c) You have a workplace message that needs to be distributed company-wide; however, some people might not take the message well. Write three different email messages to the three different audiences that need to hear the message. Each message should be 100+ words.
