Evil HR Lady

For example, when an unvaccinated boy in Oregon contracted tetanus , he spent 57 days in the hospital — and ended up with an $800,000 bill. If that were your employee on your health care plan, you wouldn’t doubt why your rates were going up.

my employee locked me out of a work document in a fit of pettiness

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I took a job a few years back to manage an area that previously did not have a manager. My employer doesn’t fire people, it just moves them around, and this area was the dumping ground for problem employees before I arrived, so I inherited some colorful personalities. One employee in particular, Jason, is infamous across the entire department for being very difficult to work with. He plays constant power games, loses his temper frequently, and has horrible people skills.

how to answer “how are you?” when you’re grieving

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: My dad died in late August. Since then, many people have asked me “how are you?” to which I usually respond with, “I’m okay” or “I’m here” or “It’s day-by-day.” ” Depending on how close they are to me, I may expand upon that answer. I don’t answer with “fine” because … well, I’m not fine. I have more worries as my mom needs to sell the house and relocate closer to me, I miss my dad, I need to reorganize my home so my mom can temporarily live with me, etc.

my employee accused me of favoring her coworker

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I recently expanded my team from one direct report to two. “Tammy,” my original staffer, is proficient but not great and can get confused by complicated projects. “Carrie,” the new hire, is still learning but is a superstar. She picks up on nuances of projects that Tammy misses, even though Tammy has been in the role three years. Carrie also volunteers for more work and to learn new projects, while Tammy only does the minimum that is expected.
