Did they do it maliciously on purpose or was it an accident?

Purposefully!

Why will you fire them? The business is between them, and the company is not involved. I think you need to check the policies of your company. If you fire them for that reason alone where they are not even violating any company rules or policy, that would be an illegal dismissal. One should be dismissed for an authorized and just cause. If an employee damages the car of another employee then let the former pay the latter for the expenses incurred. Is it intentional by the way? Or is it an accident?

We need more information. Was the person who crashed into someone else’s car under the influence of any sort of narcotics or alcohol while working?

Ooo I think we need way more information - what happened?!

You can technically fire folks for any reason or no reason. Many states are “at-will” and it means just that.

Was it intentional? If yes and your company doesn't tolerate such behavior, then you can fire them. This one needs to be investigated further to avoid illegal dismissal. Just check your company policies to be sure.

Very curious as to what happened! Any updates??

Trying to transition into a UX/Product Design role, mostly because I find it more interesting. I don’t have experience on a UX/Product specific team though. I’ve been in small design shops and agencies where I’ve had to be involved in a large range of projects from web design all the way to interior design due to a small team. I’m tired of having to be a “jack of all trades”. I’ve been applying to jobs but haven’t had much luck. Any advice on making the transition and on application process?

Does your company offer any sort of monthly reimbursements (phone reimbursement, Internet reimbursement, electricity reimbursement)?

My previous company offered $50 for phone and $25 for Internet as monthly non taxable reimbursements (added through payroll and receipts were not required). My current company is reimbursing up to $30 for electricity each month upon receipt and is thinking of adding it to payroll as a recurring taxable reimbursement.

Hi Everyone.

I’ve said this before and this is reminder to myself as well. What we say, like, comment, and share on FB or other social platform can hurt our job search, promotions or even our employment status.

Is this legal? My spouses company just decided to change their comp structure for account managers. It was base + comm, now it’s commission only but nothing changed, OT commission is the same, didn’t get more points, just took away the base pay and said work harder basically. So now they have to worker harder to get $50k they were already making. (Not a decision based on employee performance, they’ve been crushing it. I think the company is just trying to save money they overspent else where)
