Employees and employers have somewhat differing opinions about what causes people to be fired from jobs, according to recent research from Airtasker.

The report was based on data from a survey of 831 individuals who have lost a job and 93 employers.

Respondents who have been fired from a job say they think it occurred because of personality conflicts (30% cite a key reason), because their boss was a jerk (23%), because of office politics (19%), and because of poor performance (18%).

Employers say the last person they fired was let go because of attitude issues (57% cite as a key reason), because of personality issues (41%), because the person was not completing their job as described (40%), and because or poor attendance (34%).

Some 48% of employers say they would consider rehiring someone they had fired. However, only 33% of ex-employees say they would work again for someone who had fired them.
