Troublesome employees can be a pain in an employer's side and a real impediment to business prospects, so firing them can be a real boon.

While you may hope to weed out potential troublemakers during the interview process, it may take some time for a worker to reveal his true colors. By then, giving him the pink slip may be the best solution.

Here are five kinds of employees that you may want to consider firing:

I would also say those employees who do not get along well with others do not belong in your organization. Business is a team sport and no one, even the superstar, will not accomplish much if he is not a team player.

Hi Cate,

I think the most important thing to remember here is something mentioned in the first few lines. If employees "create more problems than they're worth." Many entrepreneurs seem to believe getting good help is an easy matter. It is not! Remember the great segments on the TV show Murphy Brown where we were introduced to a seemingly endless stream of Murphy's horrible secretaries? Truth is often stranger than fiction, as anyone who's interviewed a few really weird job applicants can attest. On the other hand, an employee who you seem to actually pay to make your job harder is just adding insult to injury. No employee is perfect, so don't fire too rashly, but when you realize it would actually be easier to run your business without that person there, it's time to change things

You're so right! I was actually just having a conversation with another business owner over the weekend about how the most difficult part of entrepreneurship is finding good people to work for you.

Thanks for your comments!
