I am not a fan of firing someone because they made a mistake. A lot of time, energy and money went into training someone to do something and to fire that person over an embarassing mistake doesn't fix the problem and is not economically sound.
I have worked for many companies over the years and made my fair share of mistakes, some I may share with you on the live broadcast; I'm not sure at this time.
It is acceptable in my book to fire someone for being lazy, doing drugs or alcohol on the job or stealing. However if the individual is good at their job some judgement should be used and if possible salvage the employee.
People who applies rules without taking a situation into consideration are creating new problems for another employer. We used to be a more understanding society, now we can cut people off at the knees and no mercy is shown.
Extremes of being too lenient or too harsh are not good and provide no value to anyone. We must take responsibility for our action and the actions of others if they are being supervised by us.
Don't become mindless automatons, we will be competing with them soon enough.
If we lose our humanity then we are nothing more than robots and they will fast be taking our places in the workforce so watch out!
