Are these office antics sackable?

Even the most senior of workers is capable of getting fired. Whilst your seniority and competence may well allow you some flexibility – maybe a few more sick days than others or upper management looking the other way whilst they take an extra-long cigarette break and come back with a takeaway coffee – but there are some actions that are simply inexcusable.

These are things that all workers are aware of, and it really shouldn’t be a shock when they’re called into their manager’s office and handed a letter detailing their notice period whilst the rest of the office, acutely aware of what’s going on, sits in silence and tries to act like it’s not happening.
