Some employees seem perpetually unable to get along with others. They argue, act insubordinate and generally make life miserable for other employees who are trying to get work done.
Don’t hesitate to fire them if they refuse to change their ways.
Recent case: Heilia Fairclough, who is black and of Jamaican nationality, worked at a Wawa store, where she had trouble getting along with co-workers and managers. Fairclough complained she was being harassed. But when HR interviewed several co-workers and her supervisors, it concluded that Fairclough was not harassed. The company fired her and she sued, alleging age, race and national-origin discrimination.
But in court, when faced with her employer’s termination reasons, she couldn’t counter them at all. The case was dismissed. (Fairclough v. Wawa, No. 09-2153, DC NJ, 2010)
