In Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, Odysseus travels 10 years through intense perils to return home after the Trojan War. One adventure finds Odysseus and his men navigating a narrow channel between a dangerous monster, Scylla, and a deadly whirlpool, Charybdis. To avoid the whirlpool, Odysseus learns that he must sail very close to the monster. Only through crafty maneuvering is Odysseus able to escape both perils. Like Odysseus, employers often find themselves treading a careful path between dangers, making difficult decisions in the face of laws that pull in different directions.
