A top executive has left our firm abruptly and mysteriously and, so far, ownership has decided not to share the details. The rumors have been flying among the staff, and most are worse than the actual truth (to which I am privy). Some of them inaccurately and distastefully sully the character of other members of the company. Should the executives continue to say nothing? Even if they decide not to elaborate on the actual circumstances, should they address the rumors?
