Q I’ll occasionally give employees a half-day off to reward exceptional work. Our HR manager got wind of this and told me to stop because it’s unfair to other units that don’t get this “benefit.” What bull! Can I ignore this guy?

A First, try to understand more fully why your rewards pose a threat. A good HR manager should explain the potential liability the company faces or cite an attorney’s opinion that inconsistencies in doling out rewards can lead to legal trouble.

Maybe you can agree to persuade HR to change its policy—or simply ignore the policy if your unit continues to excel.
