In many organizations there are employees who sabotage processes, steal company property, harass others, cheat the management or mislead customers. These misbehaviours of the employees are pervasive and costly. In the same time, they are warning that employees` needs are not met. Sometimes managers avoid to facing the unacceptable behaviours of the employee due to certain psychological reasons. The approach of problem-employees is a challenge for the managers. While most of them may be tempted to dismiss these employees researches have indicated that the best alternative is to learn how to behave with that person.
