I came across the article I am including below and I found it interesting. It is about a boss who fired an employee while he was in bed recovering from a heart surgery. He even did it over the phone!
Can there be a worse Boss??!! I believe there could….There are a lot of Pyschos out there
It tells us something in management skills. Even if you have an under-achiever, you have to start by trying to get the best out of him. If all trials fail, then choose the proper timing and method to fire him.
His manager attempted to justify it by saying that the operation had not been fully successful. As such, it seemed unlikely that Gardiner would be able to return to his job anytime soon. According to the supervisor, this meant he had to find someone else to do the job. He then refused to change his mind even when it was later revealed that Gardiner would be fit to return to work in three months.
The search continues, however. While this certainly qualifies for the title of “World’s Worst Boss” one fears there may be even more vile and inconsiderate instances out there.
