Wow I’m sorry you’re in this position! If I were you I would ask the boss to give this person ONE last chance, and if she doesn’t pick up her game then she will get replaced – espically since it’s not fair that you’re having to do extra work when your workload should be lessened with her around!


Good luck though!

Doing her job for her wont’ help her at all. She needs to grow up. Afterall, she has a kid in University, right?

You are not being unreasonable, and this woman deserves to lose her job. I bet there are plenty of people looking for work that would be more of an asset.

@Cariad:  Wow. That is really bad. I think another sit down with the boss is needed. Hang in there!


She sounds useless.

I would go to your boss, and explain that she hasn’t been doing her job, and the slack falls to you.  Let the boss decide what to do.  It’s unfair for you to be doing the job of two people without the salary of both!

It soundsl ike she has had her chance to improve and has not made the necessary changes. In such a case, I think you are right to ask the boss to let her go and replace her with someone capable of doing the job. You should not feel bad for her situation as it is her responsibility to complete her tasks and if she can’t do that, she is not the person for this job. Also, it sounds like the problem has been discussed with her so it is not like she thinks she is doing an amazing job and then suddenly she is let go.

I’m on team Get-a-university-student. It seems like you’ve given her the benefit of the doubt a few too many times.

You are not responsible for this woman losing her job. She is a grown-up who has had plenty of chances and is not doing what she is told. It’s not your fault.

@Cariad:  Glad it worked out! There is nothing more frustrating than an incompetent employee!
