* Rustycon 1995: A Seattle area science-fiction convention already notorious for its wild partying was put into a very fancy Hyatt hotel. The hotel staff was clueless about what to expect, resulting in business guests being put on the same floor as the party wing. Among the highlights were an intoxicated person crashing ''through'' a plate glass window, sabotage to the fire alarm, broken elevators, several chandeliers being ripped down, and damage to the lobby artwork that reached the five-figures mark. It took almost ''twenty years'' before downtown Bellevue hosted another sci-fi convention.
** In general, conventions and expos that don't have a permanent location tend to get banned, be it for sci-fi, video games, or furries, some idiots will inevitably do something so stupid/dangerous/damaging that the city will refuse to have them back.
** Tekkoshocon in Pittsburgh, PA isn't banned from the city itself, but a few hotels have blacklisted it after one particularly drunk and riotous pair painted their room floor to ceiling, smashed the toilet, and ''rode a dresser down the stairs like a bob-sled''. Obviously, the individuals themselves are no longer allowed at the convention, either.
** Anime Weekend Atlanta got banned from one hotel after some guests dressed as [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingons]] got drunk and disorderly, up to and including taking several of the hotel's doors off their hinges. This resulted in one of AWA's three iron-clad rules: "No [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] Klingons!"

* When an employee is fired for such reasons as poor performance, insubordination, neglect of duty/"no show," etc., but more often a layoff (which is usually not performance-related), they will often be banned from re-applying only for a certain number of years; however, the fired employee will often be permitted to reapply after the "ban" expires or is otherwise lifted; this is called "termination without prejudice," meaning a fired employee is allowed to be considered for a future opening. [[note]]Fired employees sometimes will reapply sooner, such as when new management is in place, lending credence to their dismissal not necessarily being the fault of the (fired) employee. Many times, a rehire can happen after the manager who did the firing leaves the company (sometimes, ironically enough, the manager himself was terminated), and other employees/mangers with whom the ex-employee was friendly with are still employed by the company. Plus, an employee who was fired earlier in his career may have proven, through employment elsewhere, that he/she has improved to warrant a second chance.[[/note]] However, the more severe form is lifetime banishment from a company, usually for the most serious offenses: fraud (such as resume fraud), gross misconduct, severe insubordination, committing a crime (often, assault or theft, although said offense need not even necessarily happen while on duty) or being completely and grossly incompetent or ill-suited for the job. This latter instance is called "termination with prejudice," meaning the company will not consider the fired employee for employment in the future. (This usage spilled over into government work, including clandestine government work, where it in turn led to the somewhat morbid joke "termination with extreme prejudice," i.e. [[DeadlyEuphemism killing the person]].)

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/TheGoodFight'', Diane Lockhart is ready to retire and live off her savings from a fund run by friend Harry Rindell. However, Diane discovers that Harry has been running a Ponzi scheme and Diane has lost almost all her money. Unable to return to her own firm, Diane figures anyone else will take her due to her standing. A friend has to inform Diane that no one wants her because she got so many other people (from fellow lawyers to society folk to some advocate groups) to invest in Rindell as well so they blame Diane for the loss of their money and thus no firm in Chicago is going to touch her.
