This is completely hypothetical.
You have two employees that you need to fire. They've been given warnings.. too many warnings, the way your boss sees it. You need to fire one of them.
Employee #1 works really hard and gets the job done, but they always come in late for work, they take long lunches and leave early every single day.
Employee #2 doesn't do that super of a job, but they're always at work early, take short lunches, and leave at the correct time every day.
Both employees have been talked to about their behavior and neither seem to want to change it. Who do you fire?
Neither... you change or cut their hours so they quit!! That's how they do it in retail from what I've seen any ways.

I would fire both and hire someone. In this job market no need to keep sub par employees there are many others who will take the job and do it better and be on time.
