The 13 most common reasons for getting fired

From the Business Insider:

An analyst at Here is the City researched the most common reasons why employees get fired.

The good news is this: most of the deeds that could lead to you being laid off are totally avoidable.

For example, being drunk at work and sexually harassing co-workers is an obvious no-no.

Other justifications for sacking a worker is more subjective.

1.  Poor performance.

2.  Bringing your personal problems into the office.

3.  Being caught lying on your job application or resume.

4.  Absenteeism or bad timekeeping.

5.  Getting caught lying or stealing.

6.  Sleeping on the job.

7.  Becoming embroiled in office politics.

8.  Engaging in office gossip or complaining about work.

9.  Sexually harassing your co-worker.

10.  Refusing to follow orders or directions.

11.  Unauthorized surfing of the internet, or breach of company email policy.

12. Being drunk at work.

13. Bitching about your boss or company on Facebook or Twitter.
