    After talking to my brother-in-law who is an attorney and employer, I decided that I will call for a meeting of upper managers. We need to meet anyway because we are supposed to meet regularly and have other issues to discuss. I figured that this would be a good forum to discuss this person's performance. Hopefully the higher ups will realize that his performance is affecting the bottom line and several people are unhappy with him.

    If that does not work then Plan B....whatever plan b is....:D

    Can I ask what exactly you do? How large or small a company? Very corporate or more loose work environment?

    Plan B is always a full scale military operation.

    I'd have suggested a simple, honest and diplomatic, man-to-man chat with the other employee. I've found that sometimes, all you've got to do is just approach the person, be polite, and let them know that there are issues. You say this, and mention that "the issues can be easily rectified and you'd be more than willing to help out if need be. The only reason you were bringing it up is that you caught it first, and figured it might be a good idea to offer assistance before other people who might take issue go complaining to managemet and make mountains out of mole hills."

    I dunno man. More flies with honey.
