Plot Synopsis

DOES SOMEONE HAVE TO GO? is a reality series that follows employees at businesses, where they are given the opportunity and power to improve their companies. Frustrated bosses hand over the reins of their companies to the employees, offering their respective staffs a chance to make changes in the workplace -- even if it means firing co-workers who are lazy, incompetent or unnecessary. Employees assess how their company is functioning, make recommendations on how best to solve their issues, and determine the fates of their fellow staffers. But when the owners leave their companies in the hands of their employees, those workers quickly learn that solving personnel issues isn't as easy as it looks. Each company is featured in two 60-minute episodes, with the first episode showing how the employees evaluate their workplace, and the second episode features three at-risk employees stating their cases about why they should not be fired. Season 1 featured three businesses, including: Velocity Merchant Services (VMS) in Downers Grove, IL; and DFX, a sports products manufacturer in Anaheim, CA.
