* CorruptCorporateExecutiveCorruptCorporateExecutive: Meredith, [[spoiler: Arthur Kahn and Phil Blackburn. A much more clear case from the book. It's not 100% confirmed, but very much implied that Phil was helping Meredith from the very beginning to the very end about every unlawful act she did in the story.]], and to a lesser extent Garvin (it's pretty much clear he had no idea about Meredith's deceptions).



* FalseRapeAccusation: Meredith claims that Tom assaulted ''her''. Indeed, had the roles been reversed, she could very well have gone to the police and filed a complaint.

[[spoiler: It's all a ploy to try to get him fired from Digicom so she can prevent him from tracing the changes she made on the production line and frame for it.]]



*FrameUp: Meredith frames Tom with sexual harassment after he ultimately refuses her advancements. [[spoiler: To say the least she didn't care whatsoever, because she was just looking for an excuse to get him kicked on of Digicom to successfully frame him again with her changes on the production line: which is actually his responsibility.]]



* PsychoExGirlfriend: Meredith. Subverted in that while we're supposed to believe she's this, she actually has entirely different motives.

* SleepingWithTheBoss: Plays the "female boss, male employee" version of this for all the drama it can. Meredith Johnson, the ex and new boss of Tom Sanders, tries to restart their relationship, but Tom doesn't want to go through with it due to him being married now. Meredith then out-and-out tries to rape him, forcing him to fight her off. The plot gets kicked off when she files charges of sexual harassment against him.

It's also implied that she may have very well slept with Garvin.



* TwistEnding: [[spoiler: Turns out the whole "sexual harassment" scandal, however it turned out, was just to put doubt in the minds of everyone when the problems with the new software would be revealed...so Tom could then serve as a convenient scapegoat.]]

To put it short, she sexually harassed him to have a legit to cause of action to falsely accuse him in hopes of having him fired from the company to prevent him from tracing the changes she made on the production line.]]



* {{Yandere}}: Meredith appears to be this at one point, but like everything else, it's an act.

* Out-Gambited: Hinted at the very end while Tom is seeing Meredith off. [[spoiler: He asks whether it ever occurred to Meredith if this all might have been him setting her up.]] Given how we've seen everything play out, there is some doubt on the subject, but maybe...
