Maybe he is family? They can be the best or the worst employees .... most are not in between. I know my Father and brother run the family business.. I used to work for them and we had some of the cousins working for us and they were downright lazy and ornery and expected us to take their crap... At the time I was foreman and dad said if my crew was a problem I could fire em and hire others. So I lined up a couple of fellas that I knew were hard workers and then dumped the family and hired these other guys. Man those cousins won't talk to me or my dad to this day.. funny part is they have done much better working for non family members.
