    If she’s that literate, get rid of her. Smart cleaning ladies are bad news.

    Get rid of her. She probably isin’t doing a great job if she is busy on her phone. It’s okay when they make a phone call or text every now or then, but if it’s often then she’s not focusing on her real job.

    Check to see who she’s texting. There may be a very good reason why the work is getting done. And she’s not the one doing it.

    I had a cleaning lady that didn’t show because she couldn’t find parking since it was alternate sides!

    Maybe ask her to stop or she will have to find another place of employment. Explan that it is unprofetional.

    My cleaning lady sometimes does that also. it doesn’t really bother me because right afterwords i know that she will get straight back to work. even while she is calling or texting she is working. if it bothers you, you can go over to her and ask her to please stop and continue her conversations when she is over for the day. hope it helps!

    It’s ok to set limits with her as you would with any employee. Imagine if you ran a company. You could set a policy of no personal calls (unless it’s an emergency) except during lunchtime or after hours. If she’s present for a lengthy period of time, hopefully you give her breaks. If the frequency of calls continues, you can point out to her that you notice that she has a lot of “emergencies” and that she’s having difficulty getting the work done. Ask her if she is able to refrain from talking or texting for “x” period of time (2 hours, 3 hours etc). If she says “no”, you have your answer as to whether to continue to employ her.

    sms007 – Whats the connection?

    You are the boss so you call the shots. She can hold the phone but no calls for more than a minute unless it is an emergency.
