Tim Levey, Partner and Head of Business Advisory, runs two groups of Business Leaders in Kent. One of the group members recently posed the following ethical question:
“One of our staff complained that a Manager was making inappropriate comments on social media to her. He’s a very good employee. She’s much younger and is a bit flaky. She quite often goes off ill and doesn’t always tell the truth. The conversation started off fairly ok and had been going on a while. He asked her if she wanted to go out for a drink. She interpreted it as everyone going out and kind of ignored it but didn’t outright cut the conversation off. He would then text late at night and was quite persistent then it digressed into what she was wearing.”
