Would like peoples' opinions about something that happened at work
We work in a medical facility and one of the employees who helps the patients got fired. I want to get others' opinions. He is a great guy, patients love him-a patient even made a donation in his name they were so impressed by his warmth.
He ended up in an altercation on the company property and the person he got in the fight with stated he/she felt threatened by him and they thought he was on drugs. He was sent for a test and they found marijuana in his system.
He was fired immediately. I understand it but we are a medical facility and as he was a valued employee why not suspend him, write him up, insist he get into a rehab program?
I thought my company had more compassion. Not saying what he did was right.
Anyway what would you have done?
