We let someone go yesterday, three weeks into a new role with us. Three days off in three weeks, each with a dubious excuse and a lack of engagement with the company saw us make the decision. When you make the decision you feel like a pr–k. But, hey, three days in three weeks. We are growing rapidly at present and this position was in addition it our usual team so we felt we are better off taking this action now – before we are relying 100% on the role – and looking again than persevering with an already frustrating situation.

Having cause does not make the task any easier.
