Problems at work....what to do?Watch
Any advice will be appreciated!
What sort of disciplinary procedures does the business have? What is your role in them, because normally supervision would suggest you had a role to play that was more than just passing a problem up the chain.
I presume this is a manual workforce, not an office role? There aren't many offices where language like that isn't immediately a disciplinary issue.
If people are missing work without good reason, this is usually grounds for pretty immediate dismissal.
If people are being physically or verbally threatening to you then that is also usually grounds for immediate dismissal.
You need to arrange to speak to your management and work out whether there are processes in place to handle this or not. If not, and the management don't see the problem, maybe its time you started job hunting. However, I wouldn't describe the conversation you need as 'having it out with', you need a reasoned discussion about the situation and options to improve the team's efficiency and attitude.
