Let the employer value the employee
Hey - your job can be outrsourced in a moment after you train your replacement from India.  BTW he is less expensive than you are.  Hey, we would like 2 weeks notice if you decided to leave us but we can terminate you in a heartbeat for any damn reason we choose.  Hey, you made a mistake - too bad it goes on your record.   Hey, we want to move you to a tiny cube of a desk.  Hey, you were 2 minutes late last week.  Why?   Please see HR and fill out form 2012-B in triplicate.  You think this is funny???  Me not, I have seen some variations of these little jokes, some not so funny, over the years.  inside threats are often caused by things such as the above.  When a firm does not place value in employees, internal staff will reciprocate by not placing value in their employer.  Simple and easy way to have those laptop systems with data walk out of the building.  

Oh, wait - just checked to see if the free coffee still exists.  Yeap - it does ................ for now.

Added comment - 18 months agoi left a fair to rotten job.  Employer fired a few people on 1 day notice or zero day notice.  Phone call on one.  So they did not treat hard working staff with respect at all.  When I left, I could have given 2 weeks notice.   But my revenge was on them.  I was the critical IT staffer in one office so i was happy to show them the mirror image of their behavior too.  And that is why employees are disgruntled and prone to act back.
