My guess would be bad cables or a more remote idea is the
1. Change to another port on the switch
2. Change to another wall port (the cable between the employee location and
the wiring closet)
3. Swap for a new cable from the wall port to the employee device
4. Swap for a new cable in the wiring closet from the switch to the patch
A cable tester can be handy, but this approach above rules out all cabling
