Reasons why you could get that sack letter

4 valid reasons you could be getting a sack letter

There are so many reasons people get fired from work these days which border mostly on disciplinary and performance issues. You may have avoided those issues successfully but unintentionally fallen victim to other reasons an employer may fire an employee. There are issues that border on trust and when these are breached, it is almost always impossible to resolve. Below are 4 valid reasons employers might have for firing their employees by giving them that sack letter

  1. YOU’VE BEEN CAUGHT IN A ‘WHITE LIE’ MORE THAN TWICE

People try to justify lies by giving them titles. You’ve probably heard of lying by omission; withholding rather important and relevant information. Telling bits of the truth, spinning stories around the truth to paint you in a better light, or outright lying puts your integrity at stake. It is especially worse when you are caught in a lie more than a few times. Your employer begins to doubt your words and in some cases, your intention. Once trust is lost between an employer and an employee, a sack letter is inevitable.

  1. YOU DON’T MEET DEADLINES

You might think that your boss understood these many times you didn’t meet your target when in reality they didn’t; they just let it slide for the time being. If there is a reoccurrence of this event, it might be reason enough to let you go. Inability to meet with targets makes you seem unreliable. This is also an issue that bothers on trust.

  1. YOU ARE KNOWN TO STIR UP TROUBLE

There are people who are known to be trouble makers. They just happen to stir problems everywhere they go. Employers tend to take note of people who stir problems in the company. Each time there’s a controversy, your name pops up and you wonder why you will be getting a sack letter. No company thrives in a hostile environment this is why employers get rid of anyone who happens to be the cause of hostility.

  1. YOU DON’T FUNCTION WELL IN A TEAM

Most companies share their work load in between groups or teams; that way they can optimize both output and productivity.  A lot of people state in their résumé that they have the ability to work with or in a team but when they get hired you realize that they do not. In fact, most people function better alone than with a team. This may result in termination especially in a company that is team-oriented.

If you are looking to avoid that letter or to avoid losing the trust of your employer, you should avoid the scenarios described above. Try to do your job well, avoiding conflict and maintaining the peace.
