I have an issue with a direct who I have caught working on a web page that is not a property of my company. This was done late on a Friday, after the direct had left for the day, while I was experimenting with ways to track network traffic and reviewing traffic logs.
I have been doing one-on-ones now for about 3 months. I was preparing to start the feedback model based on recent 'casts, but haven't implemented that particular step yet.
I have resolved my issue down to 2 possible outcomes:
1. Meet with the direct and inform him that he is now a 3 month probation and attempt to work with him (coach?) him.
2. Terminate immediately.
Any opinions? I am at a point with this particular direct that I am not convinced that I can salvage anything long term. There have been other minor issues that have been resolved, but nothing of this magnitude.
