Me 12 years
Head of marketing - 2.5 years
For Ben Jones only
No policy in handbook preventing people from having relationships at work.
The head of marketing reports into me but as previously stated, we conduct ourselves very professionally at work. However, we have been together for 2 years and work people do suspect.
I believe it will be implied by the Senior Graphic designer that because of my 'suspected' relationship with his line manager that she has influenced me to identify his position as effectively redundent in the re-org as they have had a turbulent past.
1. I really want to know based on the information I have sent to you whether I should be worried for myself and the head of marketing (partner)
2. Could the senior Graphic Designer have a strong case even though I don't believe he has any proof of our relationship?
3. Am I already guilty by association as I have mentioned to my boss (also a good friend), that a non work relationship did happen in the past.
3. After 12 years, I have recently considered moving on, so if I could get a healthy settlement, then that would be option 1, with option 2 being removal of marketing from my responsibility and option 3 being settlement for head of marketing
