Want to Be a Terrible Boss? Then Ignore These Responsibilities



Surely no-one opened this article actually looking to become a bad boss, right? When most people find themselves becoming a boss, they begin to worry about not being liked. After all, a lack of respect and positive attitudes towards a boss can have pretty bad implications for any workplace.


So this, of course, isn’t a list of employer responsibilities you should be ignoring. All decent employers should be keeping these responsibilities in mind at all times. Otherwise, there are going to be some pretty big problems at the office.


But hey, if you really want to be a terrible boss, then by all means, ignore these responsibilities. Some of them are mandated by the law, though… so it’s not really advised.




Health and safety
Okay, this one is pretty obvious, right? The law is pretty clear when it comes to protecting the safety of your employees. They’re obliged to be at your workplace, and if any misfortune befalls them that affects their health then you’re going to be in for it, to put it lightly.


Again, this is something that has been written about to death, and it would be genuinely surprising if someone looking to start a business wasn’t familiar with this aspect of the workplace. If you are new to this field, then you should get started with this health and safety guide for employers.




The protected characteristics
What a shame that we can’t just judge everyone by the content of their character, eh? It seems we still need to be on high alert when it comes to potential discrimination in the workplace. Hopefully, instances of employer discrimination against people due to their race, gender, or sexual orientation are pretty rare these days. But there are still a few areas that seem to get people in a bit of a state of confusion.


Disability, for example, tends to be a sticky issue, often because an employer is at risk of being accused of discrimination even if the applicant’s disability would actually prevent them from doing the job! There’s also the issue of pregnancy and maternity which many still seem to be confused about. You should take the time to read up on employee maternity leave entitlement, because it may not be as simple - or, perhaps, not as complex - as you may think it is.




Stress levels
This is neglected by so many employers. The fact is that stress is so commonplace these days that not even the employees who are under a lot of stress tend to think so much about it. People seem to accept it as a natural part of the workplace; they shrug and move on.

But stress takes a massive toll on the body; it’s not something that human biology is really supposed to be dealing with on a frequent basis! Keep an eye out for signs of undue stress. As an employer, it’s actually a responsibility of yours to ensure that employees aren’t frequently and needlessly exposed to massive amounts of stress. Otherwise, you could find yourself being the target of a lawsuit. Besides, huge amounts of stress really suck the productivity out of the workplace.

Natural Fixes For Problem Skin

Confidence. It’s a word that nearly every woman uses to describe anyone but herself. To be confident, you have to be secure within yourself. You have to believe in yourself. When you’re at work or with your friends, it’s likely that you feel envious of those who come across as confident and together, when actually most people are totally faking it and just as insecure and worrisome as you are. But, what makes someone confident? Is it the clothes that they wear? Is it the security of their bank account? Is it a sheer rejection of anything that resembles conformity, so that they can be happy with exactly who they are? It’s likely a huge mix of all of those things. It’s often far easier to focus on flaws than it is to focus on what makes you beautiful, which is why confidence is such an issue among women.
