Although this article discusses what to do when your boss gets fired, the same rules should apply to you if a co-worker gets fired. There is nothing worse than employees who are constantly gossiping about others and verbally outlining their assumptions as to why this or that employee got fired. In many instances, there is something that took place that you don't know about.If the boss of a company is any good, they know who is the least productive and if times are tough, they get rid of this deadwood first. They are also identifying those employees who are productive day in and day out and don't spend their time gossiping. Those are the employees who have the best chance of remaining on the payroll and likely first in line for a promotion.
I can only hope my boss at my present job gets the ax. Sorry but its true and I have a hard time stopping myself from laughing with joy at it to. Best thing to do when your boss gets the ax is to stay out of it and continue doing your job.
I would laugh and laugh and laugh because the imbecile undoubtedly deserved it. "Instant karma's gonna get ya, gonna knock ya right in the head".
I've learned that you shouldn't be happy your boss is fired because there might be somebody worse replacing them.
As many times my boss threw me under the bus, I'd jump for joy if he got fired.
I'd go out and jump for joy then find a good gin mill and buy drinks for all.
Join the union, and then your job performance is all that matters. The boss being fired will not affect yours.
That must have been tongue in cheek. Job performance is the LAST thing that matters in a union environment. UNions are an INSULATION against being judged by job performance. "Employees dying on the job are failing to fall down"
What about rejoicing that he/she is gone???????
I worked blue coller at G.M. and when one of our bosses got fierd we would Dance in the asile!!!!!!!!!!!
bitter much? I can't imagine being happy that anyone gets fired. They are people, most with families, trying to make a living, just as you are. Any compassion for the pressure(stress) they must be under? And, how unprofessional of the upper management to pass on this information? I would begin my job search way before this incident as there had to be signs.
The senior partner in a law firm told me that my boss's contract would not be renewed but my boss didn't know it and to keep it confidential. He added a comment that there "might" be something there for me within the firm. I kept my word and didn't betray his confidence and immediately started a job search for myself. Within a month, I had found a new position and gave my two weeks notice. When my boss was informed that his contract would not be renewed, he called me and told me that he decided to leave the firm - excuse me!!! I learned that we have to take care of ourselves and if our boss's jobs are in danger or if they are terminated, we might be next on the list. Don't play games - start discretely looking for another job because you're probably next.
What an odd article. I don't think most people would be unhappy if their boss got fired. Sad, but true. I lost my job nearly a year ago and I hope every day that I will hear that my boss got canned.
