So, I have this employee who has caused some big problems recently by making mistakes. His mistakes have resulted in him and several key members of my team having to work late hours and weekends for the last few weeks to clean up the mess.
I want to thank the folks who have worked so hard to help out but, I don't feel that I should thank him. I feel that he should have to put in the long hours to fix his mistakes but adding to the issue is the fact that he doesn't accept responsibility for his mistakes, has never apologized for his mistakes, nor has he thanked the folks who helped him to fix the mistakes.
So, how awful of a boss would I be if I took them out to lunch to thank them but didn't invite him? I don't feel he should be rewarded for making mistakes and then for having to fix them.
