    I am at my wits end. A coworker who has been here for about 6 months cannot get her mind around some of her job requirements.
    I have had 2 meetings with her, written down the information for her (and her assistant) sent her emails requesting the information ad nauseum, and our supervisor talked to her twice.

    She still can't do what is asked of her. Our supervisor talked to her today and explained again- the info requested is required by law and it's her job to ask for it and then GIVE IT TO ME for the file. My job is to assimilate the info, pass on what is needed, and use some of the data if there is an emergency.

    Each little spoke has it's job in the wheel.

    She constantly tries to pass it off on me to get the info.We have been having this issue since summer. So she comes to my office,*refuses to make eye contact* drops only 1/3 of the required info on my desk and says- *Insert cold aloof tone here*- this is all I have, then turns on her heel and leaves. SHE has attitude with me! Sheesh!!

    What the heck!! What do I do now- I hate this, I hate this, I hate this. [​IMG] Why am I left holding the poop stick! If there is an emergency and I don't have the correct info-who backside is on the line?

    I really don't want her to lose her job- given the economy and all- but

    Speak to her boss or your boss again.
    After 6 months she should have a good handle on her job and not be passing her work load to you. What is her assistant doing?

    Infractions must be DOCUMENTED or you can't do diddly.
    Every time she does not deliver on time or at capacity, have a counselling session, document it, provide a copy to supervisor.

    Everybody goofs thing up from time to time but repeated slackery gets a **WHACK** about the ear holes.

    If doing your job correctly makes someone else mad, it isn't YOUR problem...it is THEIRS.

    I don't know what her assistant does. I have been here 8 years. She is the fourth person in her position since I've been here but the only one who has gotten an assistant.
