1. You’ve made a mistake that’s caused financial loss
We’re all human, and each of us is capable of making a mistake. Some mistakes are small, like forgetting to fax a memo, whilst some can be huge, like incorrect ordering of supplies or missing deadlines that make you lose customers. If you have made a mistake, accidental or not, that costs your company to lose money or clients, or even sheds your company in a bad light, then, depending on how your bosses view failure, you could be in line to be shot straight out of the door and into the long line of the unemployed.
