An HR exec lists the top reasons you can be fired by your employer that you weren’t aware of or not taking seriously. We all know the usual reasons for being fired including theft and assault. Here is what you didn’t know you could be fired for.
I have an incompetent manager
Your manager sucks. We have all worked for them. Maybe someone in positional power is an ass and could benefit from feedback for improvement. You may feel your incompetent manager shouldn’t have their role. We have all thought it at one point in our career and this is OK.
A 9-5 work ethic and nothing more?
I would suggest that a number of company training programs are not pushing new hires fast enough. I especially believe this is the case in a few areas:
- Training recent graduates
- Manager new to management who is training new hires
- Training programs that have not been updated
Do you have new employees who leave as soon as the clock ticks 5:00 PM?
