I am new to this forum, so bear with me. I am a middle manager overseeing a staff of 6 employees and one of them recently sent me a text after hours that was definitely not meant for me. It was a message complaining about something I did - which was something I could have explained to him had he asked me directly.
Now I need to address it - how do you handle this? The employee has been a bit of a pain and difficult since being hired, generally does good work but has a tendency to run his mouth and complain to any and everyone that will listen. I have spoken directly with him about a few things related to this but not to this level.
Appreciate the input!
