Mr.’s Answer

Luke H,

When an organization holds interviews with candidates it's because they want to see what kind of demeanor they possess while also instructing them about the the company's ethics and rules. If the candidate is hired it means they have shown maturity, responsibility and positive energy. Therefore when two of these individuals who were deemed as mature, responsible and positive get into a scuffle in the workplace or outside the workplace, they have exhibited that they were never who they portrayed to be therefore both parties will end up in trouble. Shouting matches are a little bit more palatable and may not result in real trouble besides a warning. Also there are jobs where family and friends are working side by side, you don't and won't know what kind of revenge will take place behind the altercation. In short yes both employees will have to be terminated from the job.

If 2 employees were to fight, the consequences could vary depending upon the type of fight and the circumstances behind it.  Disagreements in the workplace happen, and they manifest if various ways, so without more details about the situation it's hard to answer.  Fights always raise the question of workplace violence, which is very serious.  If the fight was verbal, both employees could be disciplined.  The level could vary depending on if the verbal exchange happened in front of other employees or customers, if they were using profanity, etc.  A verbal fight could lead to discipline for both employees depending on the circumstances.   If the fight was physical (hitting, etc.) it would definitely cause a higher level of discipline.  Without more specifics on the situation, it's hard to provide a specific answer.  I hope this helped a little, good luck with your paper!

If two employees engage in a hostile confrontation, then yes two parties are at risk because is causes a "hostile work environment" If it is not physical the consequences could written discipline. If the it becomes physical both could be terminated. It is hard to give just a direct answer , so many things go into "situations" however, the goal is to remain professional and handle things professionally. Sometimes some one has to be the "bigger" person and walk away and report it to deescalate a situation.

I hope this was some what helpful. Good luck with your paper :)

This is a difficult question to answer without more detail. However, clearly the person who started the fight would be disciplined to some extent depending on how or if they were provoked. But, knowing what injuries were sustained by both; if there were weapons involved; if there were witnesses available to corroborate what happened, would be some additional information to support determining a proper course of action. Again, this is not an easy question to answer without a lot more detail.

It depends on what your definition of "fight" is. If two employees engage in a physical altercation, generally they will both be fired. If there is a loud verbal disagreement, both sides of the argument is generally heard by a supervisor from each individual. Once both sides are heard, employees may be given the option to discuss the issue with a neutral third party to solve the issue. If the employees were loud and disruptive, warnings may be given. If the problem continues, reprimands may escalate to notes in employee files and could include termination.
