INTRODUCTION: Hello Workplace Warriors. I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome to another video. If you’re here for the first time, please consider subscribing to my channel. I’m on a mission, one video at a time, to help you live your best career life. So, do me a big favor and like this video to let YouTube know that you want more workplace-related content. Then, hit the notification bell so you know when I release new videos. Also, share it with others who want to live their best career life. And, consider subscribing to join the Workplace Warrior Community if you haven’t already.

Today, my Workplace Warriors, I want to share an email that I received recently from one of my blog readers. This person wrote to ask me what would happen if he filed a lawsuit against his manager at his current job. He shared that his manager framed him and falsely blamed him for damage to workplace property.

You may be able to relate to being treated unfairly by a manager during some point in your career.

Imagine this scenario: You’ve had enough. Your manager, the very person meant to lead and support you in your career, has falsely accused you of damaging company property for personal gain. But here’s the kicker—it wasn’t true. Understandably, this false accusation has left you feeling betrayed and confused. Your lack of confidence in your manager is definitely understandable.

Now, you’re considering the ultimate retaliation…suing your manager personally only, not as a fellow company employee. But how do you do that? Will it impact your employer although you know that your manager acted outside of company policy? This is why you want to sue your manager for professional malpractice.

The challenge with this type of claims is that professionals such as doctors, lawyers, or accountants are typically targeted by these claims because their misconduct or negligence might directly harm their clients or patients. Now, in your case, if your manager’s actions as a supervisor were negligent or abusive, and harmful (such as reputational damage or emotional distress), a professional malpractice claim just might apply.

The Core of Personal Lawsuits: When you decide to file a lawsuit against your manager personally, you’re targeting them as an individual, not your employer. This means that your legal action is directed at their personal conduct and responsibilities, not the organization they represent. The grounds for such a lawsuit typically involve claims like defamation, harassment, or wrongful termination, where the person filing the suit directly attributes the manager’s alleged misconduct to the individual.

EMPLOYER INVOLVEMENT WILL BE INDIRECT, BUT SIGNIFICANT Company Considerations: Despite targeting your manager personally, your employer will inevitably become entangled in the legal web. That’s because the employer has a responsibility to defend their employees and reduce the potential negative effects a lawsuit can have on the company’s reputation or operations. Here’s how things will likely play out once you file your lawsuit:

  1. Did the alleged behavior occur within the scope of employment? Your employer may step in to provide legal representation for your manager, especially if the alleged behavior is related to your or your manager’s job duties in any way. The fact that you are a company employee and so is your manager, would likely be enough to meet this requirement.

  2. The company will also consider the financial impact to its bottom line: If your lawsuit leads to a judgment or settlement, the company might be financially impacted, especially if they support your manager in legal matters.

  3. What is the reputational risk: Most businesses want to avoid scandals at all costs. A lawsuit involving an employee and their manager can tarnish the company’s image, damaging the public’s perception of the company as well as investors’ and other stakeholders’ confidence in the organization.

Employee Considerations: Filing a lawsuit against your manager can have a ripple effect beyond legal consequences. It’s a decision with profound personal and professional repercussions. So, think about these very real impacts on your personally:

The emotional toll – Even though you are the person filing the lawsuit, litigation can be emotionally taxing. The process will dig up any past grievances and will strain your workplace relationships. Potential impact on your career – In spite of existing legal protections, suing your manager could have a negative impact on your continued career within the company. Employers try to avoid lawsuits, so other employers within the industry that you work in might hesitate to hire you if they know about your suit against another employer. Public Scrutiny – Be prepared to face public scrutiny and potential media attention, especially if someone exposes your case on social media. So, one of your most important considerations should be your mental health during this time. If the pressure proves too much to bear, not surprisingly you could sink into a dark place. Before moving forward, determine if it’s all worth it. Decide, on the front end, at what point you should cut your losses and move on with your life and career. IN CONCLUSION: Suing your manager personally for professional malpractice is a bold step. It demands careful consideration of the legal nuances, potential consequences, and your personal resilience. While targeting your manager as an individual, be prepared for your employer’s indirect involvement. Also, research and consider how such action could negatively impact your professional journey.

Remember, legal battles are multifaceted. So seek guidance from experienced professionals, such as employment law attorneys. They can help you weigh your options, and brace yourself for a journey that goes beyond established legal protections. It’s about asserting your rights, reclaiming your dignity, and forging a path towards justice in the workplace.

So, are you ready to embark on this legal odyssey? The decision is 100% yours. Remember to choose wisely, and may justice prevail in your pursuit.

The information shared here is meant for information purposes only. It is not legal advice. Only employment law attorneys can provide you with legally-sound advice. Their advice will be based on your state’s laws and the specific details of your case.

INTRODUCTION: Hello workplace warriors! Welcome to another video. I’m on a mission to help you live your best career life, one video at a time. So, if you’re stopping by for the first time, I invite you to subscribe to my channel and hit the notification bell so that you’ll among the first to know when I drop new videos.

Finally, be sure to share my videos with others who want to live their best career life.

Today, let’s dive into the world of career cautionary tales and explore the top ten reasons why employees find themselves unexpectedly off their employer’s payroll. From innocent blunders to epic mishaps, these are the stories you will definitely want to avoid. So, grab your coffee and let’s uncover why some folks end up saying, “I got fired for what?!”

TOP 10 TERMINATION TALES: Picture this: you’re happily working away, thinking you’ve got job security nailed down, when suddenly—bam!—you’re called into HR and handed the dreaded pink slip. What happened? How did it come to this? Well, fear not, because we’re about to unravel the mystery of employee termination with a blend of insight and light humor. So, without further ado, here are the top ten reasons employees get booted.

  1. Attendance Amnesia

This is the classic case of the disappearing act. From perpetual tardiness to mysterious absences, failing to show up reliably is a surefire way to land on your manager’s and HR’s radar. Remember, while you might have mastered the art of stealth mode, your boss will still notice when you’re only around “in spirit” for Monday morning meetings.

  1. Social Media Mayhem

In today’s digital age, what you post online can come back to haunt you faster than you can say, “Delete.” One too many questionable tweets or inappropriate Facebook rants can lead to a one-way ticket out the door. So, here’s some wise counsel – If you wouldn’t want your grandma to see it, don’t post it!

  1. Office Politics Gone Wrong

Navigating office politics is like tiptoeing through a minefield. While it’s tempting to engage in gossip or backstabbing, remember that walls have ears (and those ears might report what you said to your boss). Keep your alliances friendly and your conversations drama-free by avoiding the workplace grapevine communication channel.

  1. Quality Quagmire

Your work should speak for itself—but what if it’s saying the wrong things? Consistently sloppy output or failing to meet standards can turn your dream job into a nightmare. So, double-check your work, ask for feedback, support, and strive for excellence.

  1. Ethics and Integrity Slip-ups

Integrity isn’t just a buzzword—it’s the cornerstone of professionalism. Whether you’re fudging numbers, cutting corners, or engaging in shady practices, your ethical lapses can torpedo your career faster than you can plan a “cover-up.”

  1. Communication Catastrophes

Ever sent an email to the wrong recipient? Or accidentally hit “reply all” on a scathing critique? Yes, it has happened to me. Communication blunders can be cringe-worthy and, in some cases, career-altering. So, my advice to you is to always pause, proofread your message, read it out loud, then think twice before you hit send.

  1. Attitude Overhaul Needed

It’s true: attitude is everything. A consistently negative or toxic demeanor can poison team dynamics and put you on the fast track to unemployment. Stay positive, be a team player, and leave the grumpy cat impressions to the internet memes.

  1. Policy Perils

Remember that rules exist for a reason, and breaking company policies can lead to serious consequences. Violating confidentiality agreements, abusing company resources, or playing fast and loose with the rulebook rarely ends well.

  1. Culture Clashes

You know that every workplace has its vibe, and fitting into the company culture is key to employee success. If you’re the lone wolf in a sea of team players (or vice versa), clashes can arise. Embrace the company ethos, adapt where needed, and avoid becoming the odd one out.

  1. Downright Dismissal

You guessed it. The most straightforward path to unemployment is getting fired for simply not cutting it. Lacking skills, poor performance, or being a bad fit can hinder your ability to shine. So, whether you or your employer comes to the realization, sometimes the best career move is to get s fresh start in a new role.

IN CONCLUSION: As we wrap up our time analyzing terminated tales, remember that while these stories might make you chuckle a bit, they also offer valuable lessons. Success in the workplace isn’t just about skills—it’s about attitude, integrity, and adaptability. So, keep your head up, your coffee strong, and your sense of humor intact. Avoid these common pitfalls by learning from others’ mistakes. Stay focused on your journey to a thriving career.

And there you have it, folks—the top ten most common reasons employees get fired, served up with a side of humor and a dash of caution. Now go forth, work wisely, and may your next HR meeting be for a promotion, not a pink slip!

This is a question that was asked on one of my posts, where I was describing how to use a job board. Jobcase is a job board.

So what are job boards?

Job boards are websites that serve as a platform for employers to post job listings and for job seekers to search and apply for job opportunities. They can be either general, covering a wide range of industries and job types, or niche-specific, focusing on a particular industry, profession, or location.

Many job boards offer free and paid options for employers, with the paid options often providing additional features such as higher visibility and more prominent placement of the job listing. For job seekers, most job boards are free to use and allow them to search for job openings, create a profile, upload their resume, and apply for jobs directly through the website.

Some other examples of well-known job boards include Indeed, Glassdoor, Monster, and LinkedIn Jobs.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A JOB AND YOU WANT A JOB, YOU MUST PRETEND AS IF FINDING A JOB IS YOUR JOB. Think about it.. You are sitting there broke and depressed, feeling as if the ceiling is about to collapse and leave you squished like a tomato that has fallen from the Empire State Building. So why not take a hot shower, drink a strong cup of coffee, get dressed like you’re going to work, and sit down and make a plan to get a job, pay taxes, and take care of yourself. Before you can take care of anyone else, we must be able to take care of ourselves in a proper manner, or really we are doing more harm than good for others because we will only take them down with us. Sounds selfish to me. Okay, I don’t want this to be a book, so I’ll get more to the point. Pretend like you have a job that doesn’t pay yet. I know that sounds horrible, to work for no pay, but you are working for yourself and most businesses aren’t able to pay the owner a salary in the beginning. You are investing in yourself, and most stocks don’t pay dividends immediately. Figure out what shift you want to work (First shift is best for this job because all the offices and businesses are open during the day). Pick your time, an eight hour shift with a half-hour lunch and a 15 minute break in the morning and another in the afternoon. Just like at a job working for someone else, during work hours, you only work, nothing else. No Facebook, Tik-Tok, YouTube, or anything else that distracts you and wastes your time. If you wouldn’t be able to do it while working for someone else, don’t do it working for yourself. Now get busy and get a job. I never give any guarantees or promises, but I’ll bet a basket of warm buttered biscuits against a piping hot skillet of sauerkraut that if you work getting a job as a job for eight hours a day, it won’t be long and you will be working somewhere. If you need any further guidance, resume help, suggestions, ideas, critiques or opinions, I’m here, just reach out. Regardless, please do something.

P.S. Employers who scroll these pages will not notice you without your profile completed. Be proactive and get it done. If you need help, ask.

Your title in your profile means what you are doing now or were previously, so for example "Cashier" or "Content writer." Does that help?
