Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about an angry confrontation by one not in your line of control:
I am supervising two employees and am operations manager for a cooperative venture. This is a unique situation because there are a total of four member organizations with whom I do not play a supervisory role, they are managed by their respective organizations. I am responsible for only the supervision of employees of the organization I work for. We recently let an employee go prior to the end of her probationary period and it was done by myself and my director having determined that she was not a good fit for the job. We stated why she did not pass the probationary period, asked for keys and offered her the choice of collecting personal belongings at the time of dismissal or packing them up for her to pick up at another time.
