Is he? See the full story below.
He allows his employees to drive their vehicles to jobsites.
One of his good workers, Steve, uses that opportunity and drives his own truck.
The employer even approved it himself, but...
Customers started complaining about Steve's truck because it was covered in political stickers.
He talked to Steve and explained to him he can't anymore use his own truck when going to jobsites.
Steve agreed, but apparently, not for long as he started using his own truck again.
Then they talked again, and Steve got fired.
Naturally, Steve got furious and started telling negative stuff about the company.
This unpleasant situation got him and his company a lot of problems.
A good point here:
It's not appropriate, people may think that it's the company culture and not Steve's.
Steve is an employee like everyone else, he should respect company policy.
It's so unprofessional.
NTA, Steve forced the issue.
As an employer, he needs to protect the company's interests.
Steve fired himself.
"Politics should not be brought into your job or job site."
He had a chance to fix it but decided not to.
"Apparently the stickers are more important than his job"
The office is not a place for political opinions.
A lot of people agreed that Steve had the opportunity to prevent getting fired, but he chose not to. Or he simply didn't take it seriously enough.
Either way, if he wasn't willing to respect company policy and his work caused troubles that he was aware of, firing was the best choice the employer could make. What do you think of this uncomfortable situation?
