how to deal with an employee

Recommended Posts

I confess that I no longer posses the strength nor patience enough to play at being a social worker for troubled employees or subbies.

It saps vital energy from me that I could make better use of elsewhere in my life.

Its a bit of weed and as long as it does not affect his work and he does not do it in work then what is the problem.You state he is a good worker with a good attitude,I work with my mates roofing firm for a few days a month and his lads will have the odd puff late on in the day and have for years and it has never been a problem for me to work with the guys and i never touch the stuff and employ a couple of my own lads who never use it either,I would never allow it in work but away from work is not my concern.just my own opinion.

When I first started up I had a friend work for me known him a few years, I would do a 15 mile round trip to pick him up and drop him off every day! Worst thing I ever did, not once got a thanks or here's a fiver m8. They start to expect it from you like its normal then when you say no more and reality hits that they have to get up early and catch a bus it's a shocker. 

At 40 and still doing what a 18 year old would do is a massive drain! He's too old to change and never will and will continue to take the piss as long as you let it go on. Sort another lad out sack the numpty and move on. It's hard work finding good lads but any will be better than the drain you have at the moment!
