Should I do anything about a spouse’s concerns about our employee’s fidelity?

by on
in Human Resources,The HR Specialist Forum

I’ve had a very awkward situation come up: The wife of one of our employees called and said she suspected her husband was romantically involved with a co-worker. She wanted to know what I planned to do about it. I stammered something about employee privacy and tried to wiggle out of committing to do anything. This seems like a real can of worms. Should I look into this at all?—Syl, S.D.

As long as this isn’t a boss-employee issue and you don’t have any policy on dating co-workers, I’d just encourage her to talk to her husband about it. Seems like you could do more harm than good at this point.
