Explosive arguments at work could end in disaster

We've all been there. You meet someone and you just don't get on, it's a classic personality clash.

But when this happens in the workplace, it can lead to fireworks – and not in a good way.

Writing for the Guardian, Philip Landau, an employment lawyer at Landau Zeffertt Weir solicitors, warned that some personality traits could even lead to dismissal.

His comments were prompted by Bilyana Apostolova from the Apprentice, who was fired in the first episode on Wednesday March 21st because she couldn't stay quiet.

If Bilyana hadn't kept on talking when Lord Sugar had warned her, it was pretty clear Katie would have got the boot instead.

"A work colleague may be confrontational, intimidating or simply a bully. This could lead to stress among other employees and a breakdown of the cohesiveness of the workplace," he explained.

"The whole morale of a department can be affected."

He suggested that employees should do all they can to maintain a good working environment with their colleagues; after all, you've got to work there too.ADNFCR-16000670-ID-801325365-ADNFCR
