My gardener, who has been working at my property for about 3 1/2 yrs, is causing no end of grief. The tenants report he has not been showing up, sometimes missing 2 out of 3 work shifts a week, without notifying anyone. When he does show up, he refuses to do the assigned work, and this has resulted in the gardens condition deteriorating very quickly. When he is there, between taking cigarette breaks and long cell phone conversations, he only waters or power blows walks, neither of which he is supposed to be doing as I have a functioning irrigation system and the housekeeper looks after sweeping, but these are the only things he does not find totally objectionable that constitute earning his salary. My property manager has had discussions with him but he still refuses to comply. It has become apparent he wants to be fired and collect the very lucrative severance pay, he likely has an offer of work he prefers over mine and this is his solution to make a quick buck at my expense. Has anyone dealt with a situation like this in past? And if so, what did you do? The tenants have a young child and don't want trouble from him, right now he is still pretend-working so has access to the property.
