What is the best way to tell someone their fired?
I have a person under me that hasn't been working well and has all around been denying my authority and slacking off. So, he needs to be fired, and I don't want to be overly mean or anyhting jsut tell him that "Hey, your not doing your job and we need to get someone else to do it." Also, were both in a youth group (So were kids, teenagers) if that impacts your answer at all. Yeah, it's a volunteer organization. The only other problem is that really, it's a smaller group, so other than people that are ll ready handeling other jobs, there is no one better than him at it (But don't misunderstand me there, he isn't good, jsut everyone else is worse). So I can only hope that I can just tell him that he's not pulling his weight. Also just for clarification, it's the youth group we're in (Boy Scouts, if it matters) and I'm the Senior Patrol Leader (In charge) and so I can fire him whenever I want, I would jsut rather not lose friendship over it (But, I still know that it might not be possible, in which case he still has to go)

Is this a volunteer organization, or are you both paid employees and he reports to you? It makes a difference...if you're employed, your company probably has policies about how employees get disciplined and eventually fired if they aren't performing. Check with your boss and/or your HR department before you do... More

I got fired from Girl Scouts (as a leader) once. I was pulled aside and told, look there have been a few complaints, and it would probably be best if you did not come back. I was p****d off but but I left. I have detested all Girl Scout Leaders ever since.
