Should I fire somebody just because the employer made a mistake in hiring him?
I started a new job (90 days Oct. 1st) and I have been told to get rid of an employee because he just isn't cutting it. The employee has been here 3 years and was hired because, as a friend of the CEO, he did graphic work. However, he has to be more technical now and I'm not sure he can make it.
For whatever reason the CEO wants me to fire him. We have a small IT shop of five people which includes two vacancies so I am hesitant to get rid of any help that I can get my hands on.
I am preparing an action plan but feel like I am wasting my time.
Has anybody else faced this situation? If so, what did you do?
