Sample Business Studies Paper on analyzing the critical incident at CapraTek

Write a 5–6-page paper analyzing the critical incident at CapraTek.
Introduction
As a result of the chart and memorandum you created for your consulting client, legal counsel for CapraTek has determined that the company experienced a critical incident related to COVID-19 that has resulted in serious legal risks. The critical incident includes a potential failure to implement appropriate precautions in the workplace and a potential failure to properly select essential workers to remain onsite during the pandemic. The company has hired an outside investigator to interview five key CapraTek employees regarding this incident. The CEO has now asked you to analyze the interviews of these employees and write a memorandum in narrative form addressing the six deaths reported in the wrongful death worker complaints.
In this assessment, you will analyze the transcript of interviews with five key CapraTek employees and write a memorandum in narrative form addressing the following for each of the wrongful death complaints. See the CapraTek Key Employee Interviews [DOCX].
1. Identify actions, errors, and omissions that may have contributed to the six wrongful death complaints; assign each action, error, or omission to the individual(s) involved.
2. Analyze potential legal liabilities to the company resulting from the incident supported by references to the legislation, order, or recommendation involved.
