I work with a very lazy woman. She is consistantly late for work. She is never where she is supposed to be, and when she is found, it's usually hiding somewhere talking on her cell phone. She is constantly critical of others work performance, but does not get her own work done. I have caught her several times in conversations with other co workers, telling them that they shouldn't be doing XYZ because it is not in their job description and that they aren't being paid to do it.
Several of us went to our boss the other week and complained. We are tired of her putting us down, picking up her slack and bring down morale. The boss said she's talk to her.
So far, nothing has changed. Today, as I was talking to the boss's assistant, I remarked, "What does Connie have on the boss, Connie doesn't do her job, tells others not to do yet she is constantly getting everything she wants and her butt kissed!" (continued)

I'm pretty sure, as long as he is or has given her warnings (verbal w/ a witness present, then a written and a final) he would be able to terminate her for her performance. She would have the responsibility to prove her performance was up to par and within the same standards that others who worked similar positions have done. No I don't think it is that easy to sue for that issue, maybe something else is going on....
