If you own a small business, then you’ve fired someone before. I’m not talking about laying someone off. I’m talking about firing someone because they are incompetent. Its never fun. Its uncomfortable (because of the confrontation), annoying (because you have to hire someone else), and a lot of work. You have to take the necessary steps to make sure the fired employee doesn’t become disgruntled. I generally believe that ‘disgruntled’ means disaster. Here are a few disaster stories from CNN.
The stories range from hacking into the company’s servers all the way to physical fights. They will entertain you.
