    Late March snow storms after all the snow melted is a kick right square in the balls, noting worse than looking out the window at fresh snow, especially if the weather terrorists are right and we get 12" plus.

    HR comes into my office to talk about a problem employee. I have had her supervisor document her attendance. HR says he has came up with a solution move the employee to a different position at the company. I had to pause for a second to put together a response that would not get me sued. I simply replied instead of terminating an employee that has not showed up for a full 40 hour week in the past 6 months, moving her to a different position is the answer? Terminate her or I will.

    What a DA.

    Sounds like your HR person used to work for the government and believes in participation trophies.

    I farmed out the rest of HR, I have thought about it, we just transitioned to a new software at work, receiving inventory is critical data entry. I think he may have intended to transfer her within the company so she would train her replacement, and then terminate her after her attendance does not improve. I do not think that is ethical or wise you do not keep a person like that on staff for any reason. I am sure glad my cartoon bubble of my thoughts are not visible.

    People like that are a cancer!
    If they’re skimming time someone they’re close with is also!

    I suspect you probably already have, but you might want to have a quick chat with HR person, to understand their thinking on reassigning. They may have meant well, but a quick chat will either inform you, or give the opportunity to help reset their POV.

    This is the same HR person that has shown up late on days a new hire was to show up, what kind of example does that set?

    Trying to explain that yes having a 115v oil filled electric radiator does bring the electric bill up by at least $50 a month. In the plant room with humidifiers and grow lights. These are tropical plants not profitable plants.

    I would've answered, 'slightly less than a gas water heater uses electricity'...
