1. This bill is nothing more than an effort to strip the rights of individual employees and transfer greater power to the already powerful. Such a bill is rife with potential for abuse based upon both political or personal grievances. Now more than ever individual employees need protection. 2. The current policies were created and exist for a reason and protect not only individual workers but also the people and our democracy by establishing checks and balances to keep things fair. 3. If it is taking an extraordinary amount of time to get rid of a “poor employee” there is a reason for it. The primary reason I have observed is the lack of documentation and follow through by supervisors and a failure to follow procedure on the part of management. Either there is no valid case for dismissal or those charged with monitoring and making the case for dismissal have failed to do their jobs. In either scenario the question becomes “Who is really the poor performer?”. This is precisely why the current requirements exist. 4. There should always be a significant standard to be met before taking someone’s job and depriving them of their livelihood. The burden of doing a good job is on the employee. The burden of helping workers do well or proving they haven’t before taking away their employment is on management.
