Scope of the article
Svbenoit created this article as a generic description of the term "Toxic employee". However it has now changed to an article about the book "Toxic Employees". I do not believe that the book is notable in its own right to have its own article. This article should be changed back to the original form: describing toxic employees.

- I agree and the PROD ought to be reinstated. The only reference i can see anywhere to the book is the authors own website, nothing even on Amazon or Google books. I was tentatively starting User:Penbat/toxic_workplace --Penbat (talk) 18:10, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
Should be renamed "Toxic workplace"
"Toxic workplace" is a more generalized expression which some authors use, other authors refer to "toxic coworkers", "toxic managers" or toxic people in workplaces. Also there is an implicit ambiguity as to whether "toxic employees" includes managers or not. We already have toxic leader to compliment this article which identifies the point that it may not so much be the employees who are toxic as the leaders or employer. Also much of what is already written here is consistent with the concept of narcissism which should also be included in this article as in narcissistic leadership. A toxic individual is often narcissistic meaning that they act to their own secret hidden selfish agenda and not to help the organization unless it happens to coincide with their own agenda.
