If an employee with OCD makes co-workers very difficult to work with him, can that be acknowledged on his year-end evaluation?

Let’s say his evaluation says there are things he needs to work on, but it’s mentioned professionally and kindly without using the word “OCD.”  Since it’s a condition he has, can his behavior be waived on his evaluation, even if his OCD causes him to act like a pouting child when he’s asked to do messenger runs because he has to stay in the office to “straighten crooked things.”  In other words, he’s not busy, but he thinks he is.  Since he obviously means well, due to his condition making him stubborn (he refuses to leave the office unless he’s going to lunch or leaving for the day), will that not affect his salary increase, even though people are complaining about him?

    How many times do you plan to post questions about the employee with OCD who obsessively straightens things and gets in trouble at work?

    It should certainly affect his salary increase when he refuses to perform aspects of his job.

    No, such a thing is NOT waived. If he is difficult to work with, then he is difficult to work with, and the record will go into his personnel file. The reason is irrelevant.

    Stop asking about this OCD person and their employment. You are violating the rules and starting to make us think that YOU are the OCD person.
