    John has been working for the company for 2 years. He is highly skilled and performs well when working. John often completes his assignments; however, he has significant work-related issues: He arrives 5 to 10 minutes late to work each day; he has been disruptive and disrespectful to his fellow teammates and supervisor; and he has periodically disappeared for lengthy periods of time during the day. In spite of the work-related issues, John has received satisfactory to above-average performance ratings over the past 2 years. John recently complained to HR about a perceived safety issue. John was confronted by his supervisor Bill about nonwork issues, such as hanging out in a maintenance closet to rest. During the discussion, John became upset, so Bill has come to HR for assistance in terminating John.
