    How do you deal with employees who cause trouble?
    Like it or hate it, at one time you have to face workers who just can't fit into the working place. They could cause trouble either direcly, dealing with their fellow employees or cost you time trying to talk to them to change their behavior. So, how would you deal with such "difficult" people?

    When possible, fire them. There are always people looking for work and as long as we are talking about jobs that are relatively easy: employees are replaceable.

    The bigger businesses with lots of employees (corporations for example) use a three strikes warning system, mess up two times and the third you're gone. This helps since it's not wise to fire someone because of reasons you only heard about from other employees. On the opposite end, small businesses with only a handful of employees, where the boss/person in charge can directly see how a person acts, can afford to fire a person on the spot since the reasons are verifiable.

    I would generally try to get rid of an employee who is causing problems for my company and/or other other employees as quickly as possible, but you do need to make sure you follow the laws that are applicable in your country or state. Look up the relevant regulations on the web, and maybe speak to an employment lawyer or someone else who has experience in these matters such as an HR professional, before you simply fire someone on the spot. You might need to provide a verbal or written warning first, depending on what kind of problem the employee is causing, and you might even need to pay compensation. It's better to be safe than sorry, as disgruntled ex-employees can come back and make trouble for you, and that can be expensive and bothersome.

    If they have no value and cause only disruptions in your business I would suggest you fire them. If they are a valuable asset who wants attention, you should give them a warning and talk to them why they made such problem.

    If you are spending 80% of your time on 20% of your employees... then get rid of them. As an entrepreneur, your time is too valuable

    Always give them one more chance to change if not possible give them the boot. You cannot work with lazy and disturbing people who want to let down your business. And worse is that you are paying to do nothing in the company.

    I've not encounter this problem before but if i was you I'd probably give them a warning first but if they are still being difficult, then I'd probably just fire them. You shouldn't invest so much time and energy on one employee. I'm sure there will always be better and hardworking people who would love the chance to work.

    Usually, in a well organize company, the 3-strike system is the standard. I am sure that there are well experienced managers out there who knows their business very well use them strategically rather than get easily annoyed by them.

    I'd say it depends on the severity of the issue. But the most important thing to me would be contribution, every one of my employees would have to be serious about contributing to the business. If not, they can go. And of course, unless it's in a specialist field, you wouldn't really struggle to find a replacement.
