Wish me luck. The guy has been with the organization for years, but has a violent temper. Though we assume much of what Scary Employee says is baloney, he has told many people about his gun collection as well as talking (almost bragging) about his drinking problem.
He’s been tolerable in his job the last couple of years, but lately he seems more and more angry and “out of it”. Several years ago he alledgedly told a co-worker he’d like to shoot a bunch of people here, but denied this when confronted.
Lately he’s taken to obsessively putting down and harassing other employees whom he considers are poor workers. He especially has problems with women. Yesterday two more complaints came to me about this unacceptable behavior. He has been repeatedly warned. Tomorrow comes the termination.
This is not going to be easy. Advice from anyone familiar with dealing with similar experiences… or just a good word …would be appreciated.
