Employers and the Bible

What about the employers point of view? "Who can blame an employer for getting angry at a bad employee?"

No matter how bad an employee we may feel we have, we are not to temporarily put aside the Christian graces when dealing with him. Do not threaten them (your servant) (Eph. 6:9 NIV). You shall not rule over him (your servant) with severity (Lev. 25:43 NASV). You shall not oppress a hired servant (Deut. 24:14 NASV)

Compensation should be fair and prompt. We shouldn’t make our employees feel like we’re doing them a favor by giving them a paycheck. They have worked hard for their wages, and if we don’t think so perhaps we should consider replacing an employee. But before we do, let’s ask ourselves, "Am I accurately assessing the scope of my employee’s responsibilities, his skills and the effort he’s putting forth? Does it reflect badly on my performance as a manager? For the same wages could I acquire another employee who would be much better?"

The laborer is worthy of his wages.—1 Timothy 5:18

The wages of a hired man are not to remain with you all night until morning.—Leviticus 19:9

Now to the one who works, his wage is not reckoned as a favor, but as what is due.—Romans 4:4

Encouragement can go a long way with an employee. He needs to know that we’re interested in him, that we’ve noticed and appreciated his successes and that we’re not unreasonable or unfair in our approach to his failures.

An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.—Proverbs 12:25 NIV

The craftsman encourages the goldsmith, and he who smooths with the hammer spurs on him who strikes with the anvil. He says, "It is good."—Isaiah 41:7 NIV

A wise employer will not surround himself with lazy employees. They will be the death of his business. Lazy employees tend to be very unproductive and to make unreasonable excuses for not getting the work done quickly and correctly.

The sluggard says, "There is a lion outside; I shall be slain in the streets!"—Proverbs 22:13

I passed by the field of the sluggard, And by the vineyard of the man lacking sense; And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles, Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wall was broken down. —Proverbs 25:302
