Sarah: Our regulations for staff review are vague and thus difficult to interpret. For instance, the regulations state that a staff member who is performing unsatisfactorily will face dismissal, but they fail to define unsatisfactory performance. Thus, some staff may be dismissed merely because their personal views conflict with those of their superiors.
Which one of the following generalizations, if applicable to Sarah's company, most helps to justify her reasoning?
A) Performance that falls only somewhat below expectations results in disciplinary measures short of dismissal.
B) Interpreting regulations is a prerogative that belongs solely to supervisors.
C) A vague regulation can be used to make those subject to it answer for their performance
D) A vague regulation can be used to keep those subject to it in subordinate positions.
E) Employees usually consider specific regulations to be fairer than vague regulations.
Answer is B... why?
