Dealing with Difficult Employees

Every agency or company has at least one. He’s the one who’s late three days a week. She’s the one who keeps everyone stirred up about the unfair treatment she’s being given but every week it’s a new cause or issue. The Employee Handbook tells the employee what is acceptable behavior and what the enforcement may be for those who violate the personnel policies. Your role as a Supervisor is to determine how best to address the issue with the individual while being certain everyone’s rights, including the rest of the employees in the working unit, are protected. How will you handle the issue? /p>

The four panelists for this On-Line Mentoring Session will share their experiences and discuss acceptable methods to use in dealing with the employee who doesn’t follow the rules. Bring your Supervisors in to share the call and then discuss what you heard and how you might be able to use the information.
