- In most workplaces in the US, a boss can technically fire an employee instantly.
- But experts say that’s a perfect recipe for retaliation from the employee, who could potentially sue the company.
- If the employee is underperforming, the boss should keep a paper trail in which they document the ways the employee is falling short.
- If the employee does something egregious, the boss should tell that person to go home or wait in their office while the boss speaks with human resources.
