our company is teaching us about a new coworker’s (possible) religion, I got drunk on a work trip, and more

Ask A Manager

I work in a small (less than 20 employee) company. We are in a moderate sized city, but a very conservative town and our company generally reflects that. On the one hand, I know that my company is quick to let people go when they aren’t meeting goals, and I don’t want to see that happen. It’s definitely not your job to try to intervene here. Is it job hopping if you stay with the same company but keep changing roles?

Basically, if it’s a healthy, happy, high-functioning company with enthusiastic pie recipients — fine.

our office won’t tell us in advance when people leave – and sometimes won’t confirm or deny if someone still works here

Ask A Manager

our new hire was secretly working another full-time job and lying to us

Ask A Manager

Then, soon after that, I noticed on his LinkedIn page that he had another company listed as his employer since this January. I was curious so I called the HR department at his new company and they verified a start date of January 22. He had even RSVP’d yes in February for an all-company trip in June out of the country. My question is, what recourse does my company have (if any) to recoup his salary? Is there a third company out there that he’s still “working” for?

Based on their response, I wouldn’t be surprised if the parental interference was requested, but it just comes off so wildly unprofessional it’s really soured us on a person who was good but not great and turned them into a never-ever. Definitely email her and let you know that you’ve applied for the job and would love to talk with her about it if she thinks you’re a strong match for it.

Ask A Manager

My coworker dumped a ton of work on us and hasn’t acknowledged it.

I am in a management position in a small company (fewer than 15 people). Several times recently, I’ve thought that we had your approval on something, including signatures on paperwork, and moved forward with it, but then it turned out later that you didn’t want us to.

should HR reveal an employee is planning to quit, boss lets us leave early but it’s a secret, and more

Ask A Manager

I know HR works for the company, not for the employees, but they’re also expected to respect confidentiality as a basic component of the job, right? The new company screwed up here, not your current company. It definitely wasn’t great that HR went straight to his manager, but it’s also not surprising. In general, HR’s duty is to act in the best interest of the company, not to protect confidences. My boss lets us leave early, but it’s a secret.
