One of the team leaders got put on non-active. He was new, only started shortly before Christmas-rush, and still in training. I thought he was OK, if a bit too enthusiastic and jovial, but not a bad sort. We all need to find our footing, don’t we?
Then he kissed one of my coworkers last Friday. On the cheek, yes, but still… Dude! You don’t do that! It freaked her out. During break we told her she had to report it, which she did. Monday I heard she hadn’t been the only one. He had made other women uncomfortable by standing way too close, in a manner that they didn’t like.
So yeah, here’s hoping we don’t see him again. I don’t know what exactly this company’s sanctions are regarding sexual intimidation, but hopefully it’s getting fired.
(Also, guys-at-table-during-that-break, the solution to this all is not to say we need a female team leader, so she can kiss the men. Just… no.)
