Approximately 18 months after Mr. Yang was hired,another company took over the contract and became Yang’s employer. Throughout his history with the company, Yang had consistent performance reviews and merit-based increases, and was given a raise just 14 days prior to his termination. The company then hired another person in the same role as Yang and the employee violently attacked Yang, screaming death threats, after an argument about moving cubicle spaces.
