On several occasions, Mr. Sid had suggested various ways and means to Mr. Joy to improve the performance, but Mr. Joy failed to put the desired efforts, and as a result of this, the sales of Mumbai division suffered, for which Mr. Sid was held responsible by Mr. Shaan, the general sales manager.

Mr. Sid warned Mr. Joy to improve his performance otherwise he would be dismissed. Mr. Joy did not pay attention to the warning and continued to put least efforts in his sales performance. Finally Mr. Sid served a termination notice to Mr. Joy.
