Employees That Overstep Boundaries
When an employee oversteps boundaries, he often puts others in awkward positions. Overstepping boundaries might include reading confidential paperwork, asking employees overly personal questions or usurping the supervisor's authority. When employees purposely and repeatedly overstep professional and personal boundaries, it can lead to poor morale if not immediately addressed. Define your workplace boundaries so that employees understand what the company considers appropriate vs. inappropriate behavior. This way, you're better able to effectively deal with employees who overstep them and correct the situation.
