Either a final warning or termination. That is theft of time. He is being paid 5 hours a week that he didn’t work.

That’s my thought too but he’s really actually good at what he does and it’s super hard to find qualified maintenance willing to work for crappy pay

But if he steals time from you, what else is he doing when you are not around? Maybe you need to change his hours to mirror yours.

Depends on the state…at will states it would’ve fine to fire for this with out warning and a small company may not even have an HR…with that being said I would be willing to give a warning but it would be very difficult to trust him moving forward.
