Sember wrote on the subject of firing an employee, first thing to do, they suggest, is to gather all the information and documentation of the reasons of why one is firing an employee. To prevent any cases of wrongful termination from a spiteful employee, one must have clear examples, reasons and accounts on why he/she is being fired. Showing one’s employee why he/she is being fired can also show them the skills that they need to become better at for a different job. After one has reflected and made a decision about firing an employee it is best to do it right away instead of putting it off. Delaying the inevitable can cause one become angrier with the employee’s job performance or their attitude, so getting on with the task of firing the employee the sooner, the better for everyone.…

    Once the complaints have gone forward and the manager is aware, actions have to take place in order to punish the employee who did the wrongdoing. The first step for any manager to take is to console with the offender and give them a verbal warning. Of course it depends on how bad the offense was. For a minor offense talking to the offender directly and warning him or her not for that to happen again or other consequences will come into play. In other words, “the supervisor should discuss with the employee the nature of the problem or the violation of company policies and procedures” (SHRM).…

    Then, Martin should ask Tom if that was the reason of his recent aggressive behaviors. In other words, they should be calm, discuss, and go through their intended goals that they both wanted to address in the meeting. Personally I would have held a meeting with all my staff and addressed the change that the department will go through. By that, I will give time for each employee to process change, I would have the opportunity to watch and observe their reaction and actions. The whole department will support each other through that difficult time.…

    The first step in resolving most conflicts is an informal one to one meeting between both parties, usually to speak about the problem from both parties and talk about the different views and possible solutions to resolve the situation with a course of action. If no decision is found, then notes must be kept and passed to supervision regarding the substance of the meeting and be made aware of the problem. Now, it may be necessary for a third party i.e. manager, to intervene and listen and talk with both parties and find out the reasons why things could not be resolved earlier and try and come up with an independent solution that both parties can agree upon as well as the team. At the same time, if it is found that one person has gone against company procedure and company rules, then a judgment must be made and enforced but also clearly explained constructively to all, so that they all know the reasons and will curtail any similar challenges.…
