I tried to help our industry and interviewed several people before finally accepting to take on a trainee. At first, she was eager and willing to learn and seemed to be catching on. However, after a couple of months, I guess the "honeymoon" was over and I started to realize that she was not remembering even the simple things. I knew I had my hands full when I pointed to a gas meter and she thought it was an electrical meter. Things got progressively worse after that. One day I discovered that she was sharing details of our reports and observations with a realtor friend of hers. This really concerned me because of the confidentiality. I reviewed USPAP with her and she "says" did not realize it was a violation. At that moment I lost trust and felt like I could not continue with her any longer. Soon after, I severed the relationship. Now she is calling me up and asking for a copy of the reports that we worked on together. I do not feel that I can trust her with copies of the reports and my signatures. I read the rules for trainees and supervisors and it states that I can not deny her access to the work files. It does not say that I must give a copy, just that I can not deny access. Does this mean that I can offer her access to the files from 1pm to 2pm every third Tuesday of every month that ends in a "y" as long as she is willing to view them in my presence in my office? I am really baffled on this one. Any ideas on what should and/or can I do?
