My Girlfriend broke up with me last week. We both are managers for the company. In our 7 month relationship she was very controlling & micromanaging. I stayed in the relationship longer than I wanted to because of work . I am black & she is white. Even though we have the same title she has more pay, access to management publications & portals than me and the other black manager. I have 2 Masters and she was in grad school. My access was denied the CEO said no. My ex tried to build a case to get a girl I use to date fired & also told our direct supervisor that another co-worker was on anti-depressants just because she saw us in public while our romance was secret. I plan to put in my resignation soon. However, my best friend works for her. I am worried she may spite him. Should I go to HR?
This is the danger of dating in the workplace. I would review the policies and procedures in the workplace to make sure that inter company dating does not violate company policy before I made any complaint to management. Good luck.
THIS is why you don't date where you work. You likely violated various codes of conduct of your employer by doing so. Considering that, if you are willing to fall on your sword for your friend (although doing so may be of ZERO benefit to him), by all means, give it a shot.
Even if (and it is a pretty big "if") you didn't violate any company policies, You will want to think very hard about raising a stink to HR. It is possible you could lose your job for this. If you are resigning soon, why do you care about reporting anything? Don't burn bridges behind you.
