Of course. I have fired an associate off a project and asked them to leave the laptop with the client team and not come back.

Spoke with HR, Legal and office lead; agreed on a decision and called them aside to ask exactly what I mentioned - to leave the laptop and client materials and not come back. HR has dealt with the paperwork afterwards, so I assume they had an exit interview, were paid their due salary/PTO etc....

Fired for cause absolutely. If your on an engagement and utilized your probably not in the firing range for cost cutting layoffs though

No not the same fight. The agitator was a cranky dude who didn't care where or who he was talking smack to. He once was talking smack to police and I had to pull him away. Surprised he didn't get tazed

Yeah. They will generally put you on the bench before doing so, though.

Is this really a question? Did you not read the clause that says we can fire you for anything or nothing and alternatively you can quit on the same terms.

I was fired today. What do I do next? I’m a third year associate at a “boutique” firm. Although I knew my performance wasn’t good and I was on thin ice, I was never given any formal warning, so I was caught off guard when they called me and just fired me, effective immediately. I was locked out of the email and computer system before the call was over, and I’m already off the website. I was so caught off guard I hardly remember the conversation (cont)

So... Layoffs in Europe, eh? Well at least they're being honest about those, instead of the layoffs in the US they've covered up.

One of the primary aims of the criminal justice reform movement is to help ex-convicts re-enter the workforce by sealing criminal records, and making it more difficult for employers to judge applicants based on criminal history. The idea is that people are redeemable and capable of reform. Yet the same movement thoroughly enjoys getting people fired and publicly shaming them for making arguments they find “offensive”. A rapist is capable of reform, but not someone who makes a dumb tweet. Got it.

In my office we have a very small number of black people. I don’t know the exact numbers but it doesn’t seem like more than 10. All of them I know >3 are on a personal improvement plan for very basic reasons. One faced blatant racism and was placed off the project. Therefore it was harder for this person to find a new project. How to investigate if this is correlates with microagressions and discrimination towards black people? Any ideas? How to convince non POC that this is a problem?
