Boss fires his best employee for no good reason: the company then loses money, customers and goes bankrupt

The world of work is constantly evolving and we all know how complicated it can be, at times, to adapt to change and innovations. This is especially true for those who have been employed for some time within the same company and are familiar with all the internal processes of their sector. In such cases, it is not easy to manage change in the organization, particularly if they concern the top management and the passing of the baton from one employee / boss to another.

The subject of the story we are about to tell you is well aware of this. This is the story of an employee who failed to connect with his new boss and acted accordingly. Let's see what happened:

via: Reddit

The person in question is a man who has worked for many years in the same company as an external consultant. He himself writes in the post published to Reddit: "My work usually includes short-term contracts, but with two specific companies I have established more lasting relationships. So it is too bad then, that for one of these, something has changed". This is a change which appears to have destabilized the order in the compay and the daily working life of all the staff.

The company in question belonged to the father of a friend of our subject and Reddit author. For various issues, the company was on the verge of bankruptcy when he was called in to intervene. "I had to take care of optimizing their production method so that they could recover" writes the consultant. "I liked this type of job and I accepted, as long as I could include a clause in the contract: all the patents developed for the company would be been mine and I would complete freedom to disposed of them as I pleased," he continued.

Without batting an eyelid, the consultant's request was accepted and the work started - and very quickly, he succeeding in obtaining very positive results. The company recovered and everything was going well, but then a new challenge arose and put his everyone to the test. In the end, the company had to cease operating. So what happened?

"When the new boss took over," says the consultant, "it was I who introduced him to the company and familiarized him with all the internal procedures. As soon as he took control, however, he began to reorganize everything and fire many of us. He also objected to my role, considering it unnecessary and, for this reason, my pay was reduced. Indeed, he gave me a choice: reduction of salary or dismissal. It was a pity, then, that he was not yet aware that all the production processes were based on two patents that I had created ".

After several discussions about his new contract and after negotiations with their respective lawyers, the man was fired, but he still got his revenge. Without his patented methodology - which he had absolutely no intention of leaving with the company - the new boss had to suspend production. The company began to lose commissions and clients, and soon, the new boss had to file for bankruptcy.

The consultant was left without that contract, but despite everything, he got the better of a rude, know-it-all boss - who got exactly what he deserved. One must always respect one's employees, as they are the ones who make the company and are assets that one cannot do without. If not, this is the fate to which you, and your company, are destined - failure.
