An office worker had a record of frequent absence. He used all his vacation and sick leave days and frequently requested additional leave without pay. His supervisor and co-workers expressed great frustration because his absenteeism caused bottlenecks in paperwork, created low morale in the office, and required others to do his work in addition to their own. On the other hand, he felt he was entitled to take his earned time and additional time off without pay.
Was he right?
He is taking advantage of the company and his coworkers.
This is wrong in my book; he doing this is creating a domino affect within the company. Other coworkers notice and feel it isn’t fair or that it isn’t right and would want to slack off just like him. Hence taking advantage of the company, taking time without pay is not always something frowned upon, but when it’s done multiple times, and to where it gets excessive missing more than 4 days a month in my opinion at work it’s unacceptable.
Augustine would handle this situation by identifying the cause and distinguishing the cause and solving it. Aquinas would probably let it slide because she feels that everything you do that Comes naturally is ok. This is very two very different ways of handling this situation. But something would have to be done.
Rhonda enjoys socializing with fellow employees at work, but their discussion usually consists of gossiping about other people, including several of her friends. At first Rhonda feels uncomfortable talking in this way about people she is close to, but then she decided it does no real harm and she feels no remorse for joining in.
Rhonda is wrong. Even if her friends or other coworkers cannot hear what she is saying, you never know if that person she’s gossiping too is going to tell. Also shows a lot about your character to be gossiping in your workplace. Talking bad about people only gets you that same respect back, people will then start talking bad about you. Bad reputation for Rhonda and eventually she will be singled out. Augustine would handle this by maybe getting rid of her to avoid all the issues with gossip. Augustine would probably have a counseling session with her to make her become a better communicator.
