New contest - guess the next cashier who will be fired

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/mart-...ry?id=14677100

The owner of an Iowa convenience store chain has been called "the boss from hell" by a former worker who claims he offered prize money to employees who predicted which of their colleagues would be fired next.


A judge deciding an unemployment benefits case involving William Ernst, the owner of a Bettandorf, Iowa-based chain of QC Marts, found his "contest" to be "egregious and deplorable."


According to court records, Ernst issued a memo to workers in March that read, "NEW CONTEST - GUESS THE NEXT CASHIER WHO WILL BE FIRED !!!"



The memo explained the rules of a game in which employees were told to write the name of the next cashier they thought would be fired, along with the date and their own name on a piece of paper. Those who guessed correctly would win a $10 prize.



"And no fair picking Mike Miller from Rockingham," the memo added in boldfaced capital letters. "He was fired at around 11:30 a.m. today for wearing a had [sic] and talking on his cell phone. Good luck!!!!"

sounds like a creative way to get feedback on poor performing cashiers.. I am sure the cashiers themselves knew who the slackers really are and this enticed them to let the owner know... I bet everyone here has one of their coworkers in their mind that they always think "that person shouldn't even be working here as bad as they are at their job" but has never went and told management.
