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.”
The group member who posed the question then revealed that the Manager was given a written warning as a result. However, a few months later someone else complained about him but left shortly after so they didn’t do anything about it. Some months later two more women complained that he had been messaging them inappropriately on social media. They couldn’t sack him for gross misconduct as they hadn’t deemed the previous actions as such. However they were lucky in that he hadn’t quite reached his two years with the company so he was dismissed anyway. To not to have done so would have condoned his actions.
If you would like to join one of the Intelligo Business Leader groups that discuss these types of issues then I would be interested to hear from you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or on +44 (0)330 124 1399.
