He in original is ambiguous..as it can refer to both employee or employer..
Second idiom is " recoup for"

venksune is close. OA is B.

But I think 'is entitle' should be 'is entitled', because 'entitle' is a verb.
How can B be the answer?

B is correct
A,C and D are out because "he" is ambiguous and we need to make sure that it is the employer who will recoup the losses.
E is unidiomatic. You "recoup your losses", you do not "recoup for your losses"

Paul, but B says "the employer is entitle to recoup"
Shouldn't this be "the employer is entitled to recoup"

Btw, TIANMU, when you said "OA will be followed", did u mean "OA will follow"?

I think B has a typo which misled everyone. E cannot be the answer. Tianmu, please verify that B does not have any typo.

If the correct wording is "the employer is entitle to recoup", my choice was C.

I copied and pasted this question from GMAT885SC.

http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=5210

This question is from SECTION B - 4(page75).
I guess GMAT885SC is edited in China, because there are some Chinese
charactors in it. But I am not sure whether it has typos or not.

Thank you very much for your pointing out my mistake.
I will say 'OA will follow' from now on.

I would go with choice C.

Reasons :
1. recoup for is totally not acceptable so D and E are out.

2. Amongst A B and C all three can be proved right grammatically with scenarios. But, if we look at the word 'entitlement', this denotes a past action. and this past tense is denoted by C alone with the proper usage of pronouns.

(B) for me. the pronoun 'he' in the original sentence can refer to either the employer or employee. (B) makes it clear by using the noun 'employer. Also, you do not recoup for.
