Career Clinic: My trainee is impossible to manage!
"I am the supervisor of a trainee solicitor. I have raised a number of issues about the trainee's performance and her lack of interest in work with the training principal. The training principal has consistently agreed with my complaints, but he hasn't had the bottle to actually do anything about it. The upshot of this was that I stopped giving her work until the matter was resolved, which it wasn't. Therefore, she will soon qualify knowing next to nothing about the area in which she was supposed to have trained. It irks me that I am now contributing to a general lowering of professional standards. Should I pursue this matter further or am I being a bit too precious?"
