Hello,

 

Today when I arrived home, my partner was distraught. He was accused of sexual harassment at work.

 

The accusation:

He said that he sent two text messages to a mates of his. The text didn't go to his mate instead they went to his female boss. One of the text suggested that his friend use a few condoms. The other text said, "David, call me, I'm worried about you."

 

HR called my partner into their office. His female boss had complained that the texts amounted to sexual harassment. HR read him the riot act and sent him home early. HR expects to come in on Monday, but my partner thinks he's going to get the sack and will have an exit interview.

 

Annoyingly both my partner and I lost our phones 2 days ago (in separate incidents) so he can't even check the phone to see what the heck happened.

 

He has only worked at his company for 3.5 months - he's not even finished with his probation yet; That's at 6 months.

 

My partner is EXTREMELY distraught. I honestly think he needs to see doctor. I've never seen him so depressed.

 

What advice does he need when he goes back into the office?

 

What are his legal rights?

 

Can he be fired without a disciplinary?

 

I want to arm him with as much information as possible.

 

Thanks for your help!

No legal rights here, I'm afraid.

 

All he can do is go and make a grovelling apology and explain what has happened

Feeling distraught and upset is quite normal when somthing goes wrong, I wouldnt think he needs a Dr just yet, perhaps a good night out and some TLC.


If I have been of any help, please click on my star and let me know, thank you.
