    Yeah I would do a written warning about it. That way when he needs to sack her he has himself covered. No doubt the written warning will make her go off, which may earn her a second warning

    It's a fine line, he'll need to decide if he wants to go down the formal or informal route. Informal would be a 1 on 1 conversation asking what's up and hashing it out. He can still document the incident, a file note or email to himself with the facts.

    Formal would mean a witness (which he should probably let her choose so she doesn't feel too ambushed) documenting the conversation, allowing her to formally respond, and an outcome reached ie. First warning issued.

    Personally I think the informal route would be the way to go but if he feels it's getting out of control, a change over to the formal process.

    Best of luck to him!

    He's got more than enough grounds to give her a verbal or written warning for insubordination Luv and I hope he does it (plus get that ball rolling!!)

    Thanks for the follow up guys!

    There has been quite a lot of tension in the office. DH has just been getting on with the job, but the bookkeeper has been moody and distant and one of the other staff told DH she is thinking of leaving. She did raise the issue of how she reacted to her Christmas bonus in one meeting, and although she never did say sorry, she took some responsibility for the fact that her actions were out of line. But at the same time she still defended herself by saying that she feels undervalued in the company.

    DH pointed out all the benefits of her position and what she has received since being there and basically said that there is nothing more that he can do to make her feel valued if she bases her worth on what another person with a totally different job is being paid. So lots of tears from her and since then she's been really narky.

    Today will be crunch day. DH found out from an employee in another of his companies, that this bookkeeper gave out confidential pay information (she does the pays for both companies as the other one is quite small) to a casual employee of that company. The employee is a friend of hers, and the bookkeeper gave her the pay information so that she knew what salary to ask for when she applied to go full-time.

    DH is absolutely furious. She's getting a written warning today and DH will follow the legal steps required to have her terminated from his employment. Ideally they will work out her resignation, but if not, then he'll follow the process. She is a loose cannon now and cannot be trusted in the company. That casual employee is being sacked today too.

    He is quite devastated to be honest. Until this blew up at Christmas he really liked this lady and was always saying what a good job she did and how he was really looking after her as he didn't want to lose her. Which is why he gave her such a big bonus as he was trying to convey how important she was to the company.

    She's definitely got some issues - but I find it hard to believe that someone would sabotage a good job so badly that they ended up losing that job - and the catalyst was getting a $2000 bonus for Christmas but not being happy with that because another employee in a totally different position got a raise. Total insanity.
