Fired vs Resigning

In companies firing and resigning of employees goes on simultaneously and more over firing of the employees happens mostly at the time of recession.

1. Reasons for getting fired
Unfortunately, at times employers fire their employees without any reason. This is called as employment at will where the employee will be told at the time of employment that they can be removed at any time without any reason and without any notice. And most of the times employees may be fired by giving them a specific reason for why they have been fired.
Some of the specific reasons behind firing an employee would be:

► If the employee is not performing well and is not showing any interest towards work
► If he/she is violating the company rules and regulations
► If he/she is found lying about their qualification and experience
► If the employee is doing personal work in the office and that too during office hours
► If he/she is taking too many leaves without intimating or often coming late to office
► If the employee is seen damaging the company’s property
► If he/she is misbehaving with colleagues and with the authorities..
► If the employee is damaging the company reputation by talking badly about the company or the boss through different social networking sites like facebook, twitter etc.
► If the employee is consuming alcohol, drugs or is smoking at the work place
► If the employee is harassing his/her co-workers and is gossiping more without doing work.
► If he/she is found stealing or lying in the company

2. Reasons for resigning
There may be many reasons for an employee in resigning from a company in which they are working. Some of the specific reasons for an employee behind resigning would be:
