Heres a fun one for you kids:
I have a direct report who is dating a C-level in my organization. The C-level is also responsible for HR. My direct report did disclose it to me.
Within the past 2 months I have had 3-4 complaints brought to my attention about my direct report - things that are showing me that this direct report might think they are teflon. Note that only myself and maybe 2 others in the organization know about this relationship btw.
So I’m in a dilemma. Write up my employee with HR which means going to my direct report’s significant other, or just shut my mouth. I’m frankly ready to fire this direct report for insubordination and just pure laziness.
Rock and a hard place.
