When complaints against staff are brought to Human Resources at Sarpedon Inc., the Human Resources department cannot always determine whether there was just cause for the complaint. This is usually due to insufficient evidence provided by the claimant. Nevertheless, Sarpedon will sometimes dismiss an employee because of such a complaint, even if unsubstantiated.

Which of the following conclusions can most properly be drawn from the information above?

(A) Many Sarpedon employees accused of any wrongdoing contest the charge, claiming their own innocence, because they are familiar with Human Resources policy.

(B) In certain kinds of harassment, victims are reluctant to press charges, for fear of reprisals or unfavorable judgments from other colleagues.

(C) It is possible that an unsubstantiated complaint could be unfairly held against the employee that it implicates.

(D) In a 1-on-1 conflict in which the only two employees involved give conflicting view of each other's words and actions, managers have to make a judgment at their own discretion.

(E) Many of the employees dismissed from Sarpedon would have substantial grounds for a lawsuit concerning their dismissal because of this Human Resources policy.

Stem Gist - Sarpedon will sometimes dismiss an employee because of such a complaint, even if unsubstantiated.

A - Out of scope - No information about employees contesting the charge
B - Out of Scope - No mention of victims being reluctant
C - Correct answer - As option talk about possibility and stem mentions sometimes.
D - No mention of managers taking decisions.
E - With available info, we can't infer many employees would have lawsuits grounds as stem mentions sometimes (Not always/generally etc.)

Imo C
This is an inference question and based upon the argument i can guess that the employee against whom the complaint is filed will feel be aggrieved if he is innocent .
So C is the only inference we can draw .
Let us see other choices as well

A is out of scope as the argument does not talk about the human resource policy .Well it may be true but we are not given anything to base this statement .
B is also irrelevant as the argument does not provide any information regarding this.
D This may be true but can not be inferred
E Out of scope .
In inference question every detail can be deduced from the argument and it has to be 100% sure .

A. We don't know whether many employees contest the charge.
B. We don't have any info about any certain case.
C. That's what the passage says about the possibility
D. We don't have any info about 1 -on -1 conflict
E. We can't say "Many employees have been dismissed"

Hence (C)
