Q. A team of auditors has started to evaluate my unit. Their findings will largely determine my future here. I’ve noticed that an employee whom I suspect of stealing and unethical accounting practices is cozying up to the head auditor—I heard they even had a date the other night. What should I do?

A. Don’t make things worse by pointing fingers. Instead, wait for the auditors to complete their work and file their report. If and when you find reasons to object to their conclusions, that’s the time to raise your concerns. Meanwhile, protect yourself by gathering solid evidence of inappropriate behavior. Example: Document any intimacy that you observe by recording the date, time, place and other witnesses.
