I have a person on staff that defies my authority. The problem is that in the line of work I am in I sometimes do not find out until a couple months later if there is an isssue. He claims he does not know but it is outlined in his handbook and I verbally have told him. Our company has trouble retaining people so I think he feels he has job security. He is a charmer and I can't stand it. When the boss comes he just flirts and gets his way. He comes across as someone who always gets his way.
However in the end I am in charge. I have covered for him. But I hate not knowing what to expect. What could happen to my credibility. Having an employee I cannot trust makes my job rough. I am always sweating bullets. I have had a discussion with him and now he just tells me things are getting done and when I check they are not....URRRR
I am thinking about putting in my notice because I deserve better. It is only a 2 person office....Me and him
I know corporate would just tell me to deal with it. I am use to working for a bigger company. Because If I could I would fire him on the spot.
What would you do?

In this job market, he really shouldn't feel that secure. I would document each & every occurrence and then ask for a meeting with him & your boss. Why does your company have such a hard time retaining people?
