Collocations about employment.
We talk about hiring and firing, which means to take somebody on to work or to get rid of somebody or sack an employee. There are a lot of words that talk about employing staff. The differences may often be about register: formal or informal. For example, in formal English we would say someone has been dismissed from their position but in informal English, someone is sacked from his job. However, newspapers and media reports often use these informal expressions and a headline might read: "Acme boss sacked over company car scandal".
