Document poor attitude, just in case of lawsuit

by on
in Discrimination and Harassment,Firing,Human Resources

Here’s a tip for handling a difficult and argumentative employee. If she tells her supervisors she doesn’t like her job, wants to avoid some tasks and otherwise doesn’t seem interested in progressing, note her lousy attitude.

She just may be the type of employee who later sues, alleging some form of discrimination.

Recent case: Dyneshia Joseph was fired from her bank job for poor performance and absenteeism. She claimed neither was true and that she had never had any work problems. She blamed her termination on racial discrimination.

But the bank provided extensive notes detailing her negative attitude, including verbatim records of her claiming she wanted to “throw in the towel” and avoid the sales aspects of the job. That was enough for the court to toss out her case. (Joseph v. Columbus Bank and Trust, No. 11-11948, 11th Cir., 2011)
