Employee Not Getting The Hint
I have a part time (12-15 hours a week) employee that is not working out. Rather than fire him, his supervisor talked to him a couple of weeks ago and let him know that things weren't going in the right direction and asked him to start looking for another job. I don't know how specific a timeframe the employee was given, but nothing was documented. Now, the supervisor wants the employee gone. The employee thinks he was told that they would reevaluate his departure in a couple of weeks, that's not the case according to the supervisor.
I feel like the only thing I can offer the supervisor is a termination form - he doesn't want to go that route, but he has nothing written documenting the discussion two weeks ago, so....
Does anyone else have any ideas on how we can resolve this issue? We need the employee out of here soon, and the supervisor wants to do it gently.
Thanks in advance.
