Company Fired An Employee Because His Performance “Became Severely Lacking” After His Parents Death

Many businesses only view their staff as “human resources,” not as independent human beings with feelings and interests. They immediately lose interest and choose less challenging options when their employee fails to perform as expected due to psychological or emotional issues.

The same businesses also try to fool their staff into believing that “they are a family,” but everyone loses interest as soon as they have to act like one. It’s simple to make these assertions in an effort to persuade your staff to work more, but far more difficult actually to mean them. Under the pseudonym u/Resident Occasion, a Redditor posted on the r/AmItheA**hole subReddit about how her employer sacked a worker because of poor performance after the passing of his parents. The guy was sacked right away without ever receiving an official warning from the employer about his poor performance.

After her boyfriend had a negative reaction to her account of what had occurred, the user was unclear about how to feel about the circumstance. She consequently chose to seek advice from the Reddit community. Reddit users responded to u/post Resident Occasion’s in a variety of ways. To view the entire Reddit post, scroll down.

The OP and the organization she works for could have made an effort to act humanely by giving their employee more time to recover. Instead, they chose the simple option of eliminating him entirely, which is utterly callous and brutal.
