Hi all

my wife currently works with a co-worker who insists on checking every think she does even though my wife is in charge and has already had things re-checked by someone else . the co-worker go's to the office at least twice a day to complain about my wife .and she worked in another department and did the same things there they have said they don't want her back as she causes a lot of arguments . she has cost the company a fortune in lost products . my wife has had enough and the line manager just fobs her off . she has threatened to resign .so can she refuse to work with her


please only sensible answers.

hitting her is not an option

Hi topcatdc,


Hopefully a sensible answer......


Has your wife tryed to reason with the co-worker being that SHE is in charge ??


Failing that she could change shift patterns around ?? or ....


Your wife should take a step back and if able, change some systems or procedures around so that the co-worker has less of a chance to check the processes.


If all else fails then she would have to raise a greivance citing "personality clash" but that would really set them apart with little hope of reconcilliation, and would likely end with one or other leaving the employment.

Is your wife senior to this person with supervisory responsibilities? I would think about calling a meeting with the offender and your wife's line manager (as an independant witness) to discuss these issues openly and honestly and see why this person acts as they do and make it clear that your wife does not need her work checking and it is not in this persons remit to do so.

Poppynurse :)
