A man and his father jointly own an Indian HR consultancy firm. They want to expand the scale of operations but an account manager has resigned and the owners are looking for a replacement. The ideal candidate would be someone who has expertise in handling clients and in leading a team of recruiters in the company to find qualified candidates. Another employee of the Indian HR consultancy firm has expressed interest in the role. That employee is a woman who has proven her expertise in head hunting as a recruiter. She is well suited for the role but she is pregnant with an upcoming parental leave and the business owners are unsure if it would be wise to offer her the position.
