I have not but the one example I know of is they got arrested. You tend not to get away with assault in the work place lol


I need stories!!

I haven’t but one of my managers got into a brawl with a partner. Both punched each other and then they were just awkward around each other for 5-6 years until the manager left as a senior manager to be a partner at another firm. This was about 20 years ago; I doubt something like that will go unpunished nowadays. For one, you will have 20 videos flying around on social media within minutes and the firm will be forced to do something about it. In our case the 10-12 people who saw the brawl never thought of saying anything to HR.


Good old days before social media


I don’t even know what that means


u soft can’t handle this smoke 😤😤😴😴




Not at work but at an unofficial after party the mail guy punched a staff and was gone within 2-3 days lol.


Bruh that’s hilarious!! cause there’s this love hate relationship between the mail guys and staff 🤣🤣

Get a life Tax Associate. Stop prying into stories that happened years ago.


Also, it's a joke and a discussion forum. Go criticize something else that matters. But you’re welcome to stay. 💋


Early in my career a male partner had an affair with a female manager. Her husband found out and barged into the partner’s office in a rage and decked him a good one while we all watched. The partner’s wife got a new big diamond and the manager left the firm...


We had something similar but the partner’s wife showed up at the office and confronted him in front of all of us.


I used to work in industrial construction, and it was not common, but not exactly rare, for co-workers to settle disputes this way, or for a member of one trade who was pissed off at a member of another trade to do so.
But I also imagine that even in that environment it continues to decrease.

what is "threw hands" you mean physically assault?

Are you fantasizing?

We throw hands 😎

Hi there,

If you or someone you know is hiring for an Internal communications lead focused on employee engagement, I’d love a connection.

I decided to leave my company without a new role lined up to focus on finding the right fit. I’ve been lucky to land roles where I wanted to stay for years, but unfortunately the company culture didn't align with my values and was not the right fit.

I help leaders and teams inform, inspire and connect with their employees.

I feel like I’ve been stuck in this salary band for the last 5 years. In my interviewing experience, Canadian companies aren’t willing to pay more for full-time employees. Where do I go from here? What companies should I be applying to? I’d consider an MBA or masters if I could guarantee an ROI in earning potential.
