DAY 11

Firing -Part 2


Inasmuch As It Is Safely & Legally Allowable - FIRE!

As a private home head, you may have to fire someone you like.  You may not fire a deviant contractor you've hired.  Instead, you may be reluctant to do so because you like him/her.  Hopefully, this lesson will assist you towards making such a “dreadful” thing a bit more do-able.  Perhaps, it’s really a great idea at this point to just consider reasons you may kindly have to ask people to leave, but in a very demanding way.

There are several reasons it becomes necessary to fire contractors.  Yet, all entail some sort of breach of your agreement (expressed and/or implied):

  1. Repeatedly engaging or condescending to behavior you or any of your personal assistants expressly forbade for as long as they’re on or near the property.  Some of these may entail smoking, excessive profanity, being inebriated by alcohol or other impairing drugs;
  2. Lewdness;
  3. Unnecessary interpersonal confrontations;
  4. Stealing; unauthorized or abusive use of the property;
  5. Recklessness;
  6. Project related dishonesty;
  7. Absenteeism;
  8. Insolence towards you, other residents, or your personal assistants, etc.
  9. Other breaches of your contract (expressed and/or implied).

Firing (Part 2)

Please Study This Lesson In One Sitting

This doesn’t necessarily mean you’re very near to a successfully finished project unless, of course, you’d like to put the “Bye-Bye Contractor” in that category.  He’s a successfully “finished” person, instead.  At least “finished” as far as doing anything else on your project is concerned.  But there could be snags.  This is particularly true if this company or person opted to file a lawsuit against you for any variation of unfair and “inhumane” contractual violations.*

We'd Really Like to Know How You're Coming Along!



If you fired a contractor whom you hired for a 2-month project only 2 weeks into the job, can he sue you?

If the contractor you hired for a 2-month project signed your lien waiver, but you fired her after two weeks on the job, can she sue you?
