Additional Information

Trainer Comments: If the employee denies he or she gossips with coworkers, give specific examples of the behavior as you have observed it. Ask the employee to agree that the situation is a problem that needs to be resolved. Be sure the employee understands what is expected and what will happen if the behavior does not stop.
