Discussion on: Should you Fire a Coworker for Making an Honest Mistake?

I do not know what it is the right thing to do but I agree with you that I would not fire the person.

You can see right away if a person is making a mistake because of an understandable human error (or as a consequence of processes in the company) or if they just don't care.

Mistakes are probably the best learning device we have as a human species.
