  Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Be Aware of Trigger Points of the Employee to be Fired

All managers should stay in tune with and get to know their IT staff more than strictly at the business level. Most employees have trigger points that set them off to varying degrees. Knowing how employees react to certain words, intonations, settings, and events will enable the manager to better prepare the employment termination plan to minimize any adverse responses.

If a database administrator flies off the handle whenever he or she is confronted on issues by the immediate manager, then perhaps the Human Resources  representative can perform the firing with the manager present. Some computer professionals are insubordinate by nature, intent on disregarding the decisions of their manager, and wantonly disrespectful of authority. These individuals are more calculating and manipulative in their undesirable behaviors. They have the tendency to become upset by anyone making decisions at work other than themselves, most notably their manager. Firing these individuals is in their minds, the ultimate disgrace since they have no power or control of the situation. The manager should keep a tight reign on these disruptive employees well before any incidents occur.


The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) has found that workplace assaults represent 15 percent of all acts of violence in the United States.
