The boss may lose his job, leaving his family struggling as he has no marketable skills. But was the employee in the wrong for causing a mass quitting? Join the discussion.

Boss's cruel behavior leads to mass quitting 🗣

A company's decision to cut employee pay and withhold bonuses despite posting record profits was already causing discontent among employees. But when the boss publicly berated an intern for requesting time off to take care of her dying cat, it was the final straw for many.

One employee sent a company-wide email announcing their resignation and citing the boss's behavior as the reason. This sparked a wave of resignations, with over two dozen employees following suit. The company is now resorting to extreme measures, such as shutting down employees' email accounts before they leave, to prevent them from linking their LinkedIn profiles or phone numbers.

Despite the boss facing disciplinary action and the possibility of losing his job, the damage has already been done. This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of treating employees with respect and empathy, and the consequences that can arise when this is not the case.
