boss gives us pop quizzes, random drug tests during quarantine, and more

Ask a Manager

This is only my third office-type job, but I have significant retail/food service experience before this, and to me, the pop quiz idea comes off as punitive and ineffective. I work as a third party contractor for a government agency. The response from both was basically “random screenings are policy, wear a mask.” I’ve got a question for you about something my boyfriend did when job searching. It’s five answers to five questions.

fundraising for an ex-employee’s family, employees don’t want to share anything from training, and more

Ask a Manager

We have a policy in place stating that we are happy to pay for your required CEUs, but ask that you give a brief overview of your course/ seminar upon your return. Two of my employees have scoffed at this and asked that we remove the policy. I’m inclined to still enforce the policy and pay for the classes 1) out of consistency to everyone and 2) because their work (intellectual or otherwise) does technically belong to us. I’m currently job searching.

unexpected gift card, suspect meat in the cafeteria, and more

Ask a Manager

I’m a security guard, a contractor working for a high tech business. The company has a cafeteria, which is catered by another third party contractor. I mentioned it to my boss, who told me not to bother about it, since it isn’t our job to police the kitchen, but I’m afraid someone will get sick. I looked, and didn’t see any agency policies about accepting gifts in our personnel manual. I work at my old job on weekends.
