What's something you've seen a manager fired for almost instantly?

At the beginning of COVID around March we had an employee who was at higher risk than typical and his doctor strongly advised him to self quarantine. One of our managers told him if he cares about his job he’ll be here in the morning. There were a few other issues with this manager so this wasn’t necessarily the entire reason but that termination came pretty quick.

Yes, I misread, meant it to be that the lawsuit was coming from the employee( not the manager).

He wasn’t a manager, but he wasn’t showing up for work fairly regularly, or was super late some days. We’re super flexible with work, but when he got behind we looked into it. Found out he had two FT jobs to support multiple addictions. When his wife showed up at work to yell at him about his infidelities (and starting taking things off this desk), we figured it was best he prioritize his health and not while he worked for us. Company was cool and gave him 3 months of insurance coverage to over counseling + outpatient care. He also stole 4 laptops.

I can see how they could get away with that. But 8 months - well played by them! Haha

Over the years and not my current firm, I have only seen one fired on the spot, and that was for theft of cash. I have seen quite a few walk out after being pushed to the breaking point.

How much time you got?? 😂

General question: If you get laid off from a job, and have ~6 month’s of expenses saved, would you simply focus on getting a new job, or getting a new job that pays more? Should you ever take a pay cut, especially in times like these?

I’m on the verge of getting an offer from a startup company that was acquired by a $2bn company. I make $70k & no bonus. The offer would be $105k base+10% bonus. To get to the TC the startup is offering, it would take 3-4 years in my DTE at Accenture. The title is 3 titles up from what I currently am. However, it’s a step down from a brand perspective and I’d mostly be working with older people vs. people my age. Thoughts? Opinions?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

They also asked to keep travel advisories in mind if I still plan on traveling there.
