Performance-Review Conflicts
No employee likes to receive a negative performance review, but giving negative feedback in a review can be unavoidable based on the employee’s own actions during the review period.
Employees may become angry over not receiving expected pay raises, promotions or other performance-related incentives, and may lash out by spreading discontent through gossip and a negative attitude at work. Employees may argue directly with supervisors during performance reviews, creating sensitive situations that require tactful communication.

Leadership Conflicts
Personality clashes between managers and subordinates can cause a range of interpersonal conflicts to arise. Employees may feel bullied or pushed by more authoritarian managers, or may perceive a lack of guidance from more hands-off managers. Managers with type-A personalities may set goals that are too ambitious for their subordinates, setting them up for failure and inevitable conflict.

Discrimination Issues
Discrimination can be a source of heated conflict, potentially ending in legal trouble for a company or its owners. Discriminatory conflicts can arise from personal prejudices on the part of employees or perceptions of mistreatment of employees.
As an example of a discrimination-related conflict, imagine a minority employee in a team setting who feels that he is consistently assigned the most menial work tasks in the group. This employee may begin to harbor resentment against team members and managers, eventually lashing out through decreased productivity or outright verbal conflict.
