Hi and Thanks.

We have a situation with a current worker.

We are not happy with their performance, and more so their attitude toward the workplace and other staff and managers. This worker has several times told us that she doesn't want to be here and is always looking for another job. The worker actively creates tension between other workers. The only reason the worker stays, we feel is that they haven't been able to get another job.

On new years eve the worker in question left at 1pm without telling anybody (work day ends at 5pm usually). This left no other admin other than the manager for the afternoon. The worker knew that they were the only other person staying in the office.
This is obviously misconduct. Is it 'serious' enough to warrant termination?

Thanks again for reading.
