Bosses in the TV world have apparently never heard of such things as wrongful termination or hostile workplace lawsuits (or maybe they ''have'' heard of them, but were arrogantly dismissive of them, because they are so confident it could ''never'' happen to them).[[note]] this ''is'' TruthInTelevision for most of the US, due to at-will employment laws letting bosses fire anyone for any reason or no reason at all. [[/note]] And neither has the poor fired employee, who will likely spend most of the time dejectedly scanning the want ads while his concerned family looks on instead of planning some kind of legal recourse.

* Justified in the beginning of ''TheOffice'', when the company was downsizing and looking for people to layoff (redundancies in the UK version). Subverted when Michael fake fires Stanley to discipline him, which backfires as Stanley says he is filing a lawsuit. This leads Michael to admit that he was only pretending to fire him.

* Watford FC under the Pozzo family has become this, with 8 managers in the fold [[note]] Gianfranco Zola, Guiseppe Sanino, Oscar Garcia Junyent, Billy [=McKinlay=], Slavisa Jokanovic, Quique Sanchez Flores, Walter Mazzari, and current manager Marco Silva [[/note]] since the Pozzos took over the club in 2012 (This amounts to around 1.6 managers per year!). Success is not even a guarantee for job survival as Watford manager, as Jokanovic was canned after helping Watford earn promotion to the Premier League and Flores was let go despite leading the Hornets to a comfortable mid-table finish (a remarkable feat for a newly-promoted club) and the FA Cup Semifinal. Watford fans don't really mind this, as the club has been relatively successful (especially compared to [[ArchEnemy Luton]]) under the Pozzos.
