My workplace has been dealing with an extremely rude coworker and I'm looking for the best way to describe or document that behavior so I can escalate the problem to management or HR. This colleague has gone way beyond just being difficult to work with and his day-to-day behaviour includes things like:
- constant cursing
- vicious remarks against homosexuals, minorities, or owners of pets, credit cards or import cars
- blaming others or the documentation for his own mistakes
- covering up mistakes by erasing logs, which only stopped after a written warning (telling him to stop had no effect)
My colleagues share my concerns but I think nothing has been done about him because no one ever tried to document his behaviour or alert management about the extent of the problem. Our (Canadian) company is fairly small and doesn't have any policies for escalating things like this.
How can I best document these problems and notify management that this is a real problem that we've been unable resolve internally?
Note 1: Please note that my main concern about my colleague are mostly temper, anger, hate speeches, blaming others and back talking! Hope it clarifies the differences with What can I do to make a coworkers lack of effort more visible?.
