The person is a good friend of my friend. He is honest, but he has a habit of going to bed at wierd hours like 6 am or later.. He does not have a regular job. He has retired. So what is his problem? He is 37 years old .I pay him well when he does show up. This is not free labor.
No. I think being constantly late is a form of disrespect. In a work environment .... it just isn't good enough!
You say "use" a person for work. Maybe the person is sick of being used by you.
