Rob took one look at Larry, fired him, and threatened to have him arrested.

Was it something he said?

Larry = him = him?

Does Larry have cause to claim unfair dismissal?

Would it be obvious to anyone who saw Larry why Rob fired him? Or would we need to know of the backstory to understand it?

Is it relevant which job Larry had before being fired?

"Threatened to have him arrested" - I would assume this would be because Larry had committed, was committing, or suspected of committing a crime? (If so, which is it?) If so, was the crime trespassing? Breach of peace? Murder? Manslaughter? Theft? Burglary? Robbery? Assault? Criminal damage?

Was Rob correct in his decision to fire Larry? In his decision to threaten arrest?

Was it something in Larry's appearance that caused him to be fired? his dress? haircut? tattoos? earrings/nose rings? Was he wearing or displaying something with an offensive slogan?

Okay so his boss knows that he didn't wash his hands. Did the employ know that he boss knew that he didn't wash his hands? Do the employ touch the food or contaminate anything? If yes does he plan on serving it to people? Does the employee do something that would warrant him being threatened with the police?

YES If yes does he plan on serving it to people? Irr Does the employee do something that would warrant him being threatened with the police? YES -- employees MUST wash their hands in food service in many places, it is strictly against the health code not to, sometimes that is enough to get in trouble, at least where I live

Did he just come out of the restroom and had something on his hands that should not have been there if he had washed them? Such as something powdery? Gloves? A bandage?
Did he sneeze in his hand?
Did he have visible dirt under his finger nails?

SPOILER : Rob observed Larry with flour on his hands as he left the kitchen and went into the washroom. When Larry came out, however, he went back into the kitchen with the flour still on his hands -- thus Rob know that Larry had not washed them.

Wow, this was far too easy. Now go to my new puzzle at the bottom of the page.
