I am a board member. The other day I went to the maintenance man to ask him to follow up on a resident concern (ant infestation). My time was limited, as I was leaving for the afternoon and wanted to make sure I handled the resident's concern. I approached the maintenance man who was on his lunch time. As soon as I spoke he went off on a tirade calling me every "F" explicit possible. I called the property manager to inform of this incident and to inform that I would be filling a grievance report.
The property manager stated that although the maintenance is on their payroll that he is really an employee of the association and therefore the Board would have to address the incident. My question - who's employee is he and who is responsible for the maintenance man's actions?
