13 Most Common Reasons People Get Fired From Jobs [Infographic]

people-get-fired-from-jobs

We write a lot about how to get a job, and how to use social media to help during the process, but we don’t often write about how to keep a job once you’ve got it. People get fired from jobs for all kinds of different reasons. If the company is cutting back on expenses, you might even lose your job because of nothing you’ve done (i.e. if your job is eliminated). To some people, general office dos and don’ts are common sense, but to others, it’s not so obvious. For those people, this guide might be of assistance.

I’ve known people who have been fired from jobs for the most obscure reasons. If that happens to you, the decisions you make in the week after you lost your job can significantly affect your next job. Be careful during that vulnerable time. This article on Forbes called Six Things Not To Do If You’re Fired offers some valuable tips regarding that.



This infographic by tribehr covers the 13 most common reasons for getting written up or fired. Some of them are obvious, like ‘being drunk at work’ and ‘complaining about your boss or company on Facebook or Twitter.’ I mean, realllly? Others aren’t quite so obvious, like ‘unauthorized surfing of the Internet, or breach of company email policy.’ There is not a standard rule about what is okay and what is not okay when it comes to Internet use. It’s important to understand your company’s policy so you don’t accidentally make a misstep in this area.

The section at the bottom of this infographic which covers the top 10 reasons why bad employees don’t get fired from jobs is also interesting. There is so much office politics these days, and after reading this, I’m grateful I work from home. The only thing I can get in a quarrel with is my dog.
