How to Prevent Rogue Employees from Hurting Your Business
By Raymond Howell, Dick Parry, Amber Elias and Karyn Rhodes
Rogue employees can hurt your business. Big time.
What’s a rogue employee? Aaron Hernandez, the former New England Patriots tight end facing double murder charges, is one. Gurbaksh Chahal is another; the former CEO of advertising tech company RadiumOne was fired after a video surfaced of him hitting his girlfriend 117 times in a half hour. Then, of course, there’s celebrity chef Paula Deen, whose racist remarks cost her a home-cooked empire.
But for every high profile case like Hernandez, Chahal, or Deen, there are countless other companies that suffer the consequences of their employees’ bad behavior. A client reads in the newspaper that an employee was arrested for drug activity. A manager is confronted by detectives who want to arrest an employee on site and confiscate the computer he is using. A company owner discovers that an employee embezzled funds right under his nose. An executive discovers that one of her people is trashing her on Facebook.
As labor and employment attorneys and a human resources consultant, we receive far more calls than we’d like about embarrassing situations involving employees. Despite your best efforts, it is almost inevitable that one of your employees will at some point do something that will embarrass your organization and damage its reputation.
So how should companies prepare for these situations? And what should you do when they occur? First of all, remember that not reacting is simply not an option. To protect your organization’s reputation, you must be prepared to respond quickly, thoughtfully and legally.
