Exactly. Been through this exact thing. Awesome guy: Very smart, very talented, very hard working, very easy to get along with. Completely unreliable. Would regularly do no-call-no-show.

At the end of the day, it didn't matter what skills he brought to the table if he never actually came to the table and he was let go.

Just remember document, document, document. The days of getting mad and firing someone off the cuff are gone.

The OP can let him go whenever he wants to. South Carolina is a right to work state as far as I know. As I recall, that means he can be fired at anytime for anything. But I could be wrong, but that is what I have been told by numerous owners of companies.

NY state is the same way. You don't need a reason to fire anyone.

There is a difference between Right-to-Work and At-Will-Employment.
