GRAMMAR QUESTION. August 25th

Correct the errors in the following sentence:

Not only you but also your fellow employees need be in the office early tomorrow to sort the files, preparing for the interview and you will have to make applicant dossiers.

Note: you can still see previous Grammar Questions of the Week; they are posted in the 2007 archives in the side bar.
