Is it wrong for an employee to tell a co-worker with OCD, who moved something that employee was instructed to put in a specific place?

    As the other parson said... if the boss said something has to be put in a certain place...and one employee puts it there ...and then another employee moves it...

    Well OCD has nothing to do with this conversation.

    If the boss says "put the mop next to the cash register" and you do that...and then another employee comes along and puts the mop in the mop closet because that is where he thinks it should go...that employee is wrong.

    The boss may have a reason to keep the mop next to the register.

    If the employee is moving things because they have OCD, they are still wrong. Allowing a person with OCD to rearrange a store they way they like because they have OCD is NOT a ' Reasonable accommodation'

    So..LEAVE THE OCD out of it. Just tell your boss that every time you follow their rules when putting things away..another employee keeps moving them 'for some reason'.

    It does not have anything to do with OCD. If the manager or boss said to put something somewhere and you did and then another employee moved it...you say " The boss said to put that THERE. So Please stop moving things...are you trying to get me in trouble?"

    And repeat yourself as many times as necessary

    Your post is a little confusing.

    Someone put something in a specific place and the OCD co-worker moved it?? What would you be telling the OCD employee exactly? Are you their manager?
