Can a minority partner be fired?

Question Details: There are 3 partners in a partnership for a small hair salon, 1 of the 3 is not doing the work or helping in anyway with running the business but expects the other 2 to do everything. This partner has made poor decisions and has cost us more in screwups than he's put into opening the business and is combative, whispers to his clients and has made work a nightmare for the other 2 partners. He's been making us look bad to their clients and we wanted to know if the majority partners can fire and remove out of the salon.
