Yay I'm no longer public enemy number one on this thread.

Don't get comfy.

Give it a week and you'll be back in your rightful place.

Enjoy my little seasonal gift in the meantime.

Oaksoft has to be this guy

Not sure what your point is. That guy has done very well for himself and his business is still going strong.

Oaksoft is someone I’d love to have as my employer. Absolutely playable...stating he can dismiss folk without going through appropriate disciplinary proceedings and just locking them out he’s a union hearing and tribunal away from a sexy ass pay out for an employee

Don’t worry troops, I’ll find out who it is, get a job for him, get the pay out and we can have a big P&B night out at oaksofts expense

Aye. Stick in at school or leave early and get a trade.

You will go far, you'll have a house in the Ferry and a new guitar that's never been played before....

Time will tell but this looks like a classic case of someone winning a battle but losing the war.

This might not necessarily end well for Busta.

You can't just deliberately wind up your entire team and expect to get away with it. You also can't be daft enough to put the damn thing in writing and expect no consequences.

If I was the manager of that group it would be getting sorted out on the first day back and at least one person would be polishing their CV.

Allowed? Who would stop me exactly given that I run my own company?

I'll pass the message on but I'm pretty sure they'll give as few fucks about your opinion as I do.

When you run your own company you can pretty much do what you want.

Sure you can. What is there to stop me from sacking a member of staff engaging in destructive behaviour which is listed as gross misconduct in their employment contract?

 

On 26/12/2019 at 17:42, oaksoft said:

I agree but we start with the fact that the member of staff concerned put their windup email in writing.

I would also weigh up the cost/benefits. There is absolutely no way I'd keep a destructive employee on the books. It would almost certainly cost way less to get rid of them even if I lost a tribunal.

How exactly would you do that? :lol:

That's your ego flexing a muscle.

Or you could tell me what magnificent plan you have to respond to me disabling your entry pass, re-assigning your work, re-purposing your desk, blocking your access to the IT system and telling you that regretfully I have no shifts available for you this week and then keeping you spinning like a dead hamster for weeks on end?

Under those circumstances I would be all ears as to how exactly you would fulfil the quest you were born for and "take people like me down".

Or are you just another ego-fuelled numpty full of hot air, you puffed up balloon?

And there you have it.

All that nonsense about being born to keep people like me on a leash and how easy I'd be to sort out and at the first hurdle you demonstrate that you don't have a clue how to respond.

When an employer (the person whose name is on the door, not some middle manager at a corporation who has no real power or an HR department scared to act), really wants to get rid of an employee, you can and routinely would be gone overnight.

Well this is an unexpected tragedy of biblical proportions.

Your idea having a hard on keeping people like me on a leash would be to stand outside my office window taking the piss out of my company plaque.

Still my consolation is that my office window is double glazed and at the other side of the building. The only person to hear you would be Brenda on reception.

This thread has turned out to be way more entertaining than it deserved to be.

"Office" - laptop in walk in wardrobe in bedroom.

"Brenda" - Wife spends the whole day at the other side of the house from him.

Selling cheese on the dark web is not a business m9.

Imagine having your "name on the door" yet not knowing when you are being ridiculed by multiple people!

Your posts are tragic and hilarious in equal measure. What a fucking rocket emoji23.png

Union? Which union would that be then? You seem to be in the know here.

If he knew the person was leaving, presumably he could have recruited and trained their replacement in advance.

Don’t want to interrupt oaksoft embarrassing himself, but (dependent on notice period of the person leaving, and the nature of the role you’re trying to fill) it can be incredibly hard to:

1. Get the right approval

2. Submit the job advert and wait the allocated time before starting interviews

3. Conduct interviews

4. Submit an offer and have the person accept, then provide the required documents and get a starting date set that is at the end of their current notice period

5. Have them start and then train them up on something specific 

... within a few weeks. Might be different with smaller companies but in my experience in large companies it will generally take the best part of 3 months to replace someone for a skilled position. I agree it’s incredibly frustrating but completely understand the manager’s frustrations in this scenario.
