I've ranted/whined about work before. Then I saw an article online on why Bad Employees Don't Get Fired. Some of the reasons given in the article seem ludicrous to me, but I have seen this happen over and over again. It seems, to me anyway, that many bosses are afraid to fire a bad employee. So what do they do? They move them around instead. And when lateral movement does not work, they actually promote them! WTH? Are we really now that afraid of getting sued that we won't fire an incompetent or disruptive employee?
