Mine is a small business presently with 2 employees. One is working for 10 years with me, now he has become mannerless and argues alot. He doesn’t respect me also.
Can’t afford to lose him as my business depends very much on him. Also he do a part time work which earns him good. Hired another guy, but he fought with him, and new guy had left.
Can’t understand how to deal with him.
Thanks for sharing this challenge. Having a disrespectful employee is bad for the business – current employees and customers alike. We’ve got a few tips for you in terms of existing articles you might want to check out. What’s curious is that the behavior started after 10 years. Have you had a heart to heart conversation with this employee to find out what’s causing this recent change?
Consider following a progressive discipline approach.
Read these 21 discipline tips from other business managers.
Consider documenting the discipline issues with a write up.
And if all else fails, you may have to terminate the employment.

Hi thanks for your suggestions. Lately I had tried a heart to heart discussion, which worked well for few days, but changed to something else. Now there is a weird silence, the responses have changed. Its not disrespectful but kind of ignoring tasks. I think it will end up in termination.
