In order to avoid these questions and any resulting regret the decision was made based on the regret theory (Plous, 1993 p.101). 3.

The baseline for the behavior of the employee was determined by a reference point, being the conduct of his co-workers. Second, even though the probability of another complaint was not reduced I naively chose work with the available data and assumptions. I would have liked to get more of an objective picture. Third, I needed to understand the full implications of the decision.
