I just sent this question our to Twitter, Facebook and Google+ and I am looking for your input.
[?] Does anyone get fired anymore? Is it even possible? Do they have to become a legal liability before you can fire someone w/o issue?

Is it possible to fire someone for not performing in their job or otherwise impinging on the productivity of an office or a company as a whole? Is it only something truly egregious that gets someone fired today or is “being asked to resign” the new firing?
I know through family members that “getting fired” in manual labor jobs is pretty common, but I wonder specifically about those with white collar jobs.
I look forward to hearing from you!
