Yes.  It wasn’t so much getting someone fired as it was documenting her shortcomings and how she was bringing down the rest of the department.  In my case, it was a director, and it was VERY tough to do.

Document, document, document.

lol be patient!! You only posted this thread 3 minutes ago. 

Anyway yes, I have gotten co-workers fired before.  Mainly because I’m always the sweet & innocent one, and they’re the crazy b*tch which I point out to the boss!

Why would you want to?

If its behavior, tell HR.

If its lack of doing her job, tell the boss. 

Let her/his own actions get him/her fired.

That seems vindictive and catty behavior.  If you’re in a position of managing or supervision, then I would understand that but if it’s simply a co-worker, I’d leave it be.

@beekiss: I agree.

While I have had some crazy co-workers I never really put a plan into action to get them fired. Overall I just did my job well and it reflected upon her badly.

That being said trying to get someone fired could very easily backfire and I would hate for you to get caught in the firing.

I usually back off and let them dig their own grave. It takes longer than “telling on” someone (which I will if necessary) but it keeps me neutral and lets them look like a fool all on their own.

I’ve never tried.  Let their own actions (or lack there of) get them fired and stay out of it.

I usually stay out of office drama. Bosses know more than you think, and they probably are already watching this person closely, especially if he got a big warning. I would just do my own job well and wait for the higher ups to take care of it. Seriously…don’t bring attention to yourself.
