Our expert says:
Surely one of the requirements of being an articuled clerk is to learn how to be polite and non-combative and professional in the relationship with colleagues as well as clients. I'm not sure exactly how the system works, but it's surely not so that your husband MUST put up with however the kid chooses to behave for a full 2 or 3 years nomatter what. Maybe your husband feels that he needs the assistance of this clerk ( is there really nobody else he could hire in his place ? )
As other readers emphasize, the kid should be treated like any other employee, and given formal, written warnings of unacceptable conduct wvery time he performs rudely. Check with the labour law expert. Surely no work contr4act forces an employer to accept rudeness from a junior indefinitely.
Insubordination is unaccaptable conduct in the clerk's porition, and letting him get away with it will be bad for him, his future employers and clients. Suely one of the purposes of articles is not merely to obtain work experience on paper, but to learn how to work properly with colleagues.
