I just lately obtained an electronic mail from somebody with screenshots regarding an worker of mine. They had been of a private nature directed to a company exterior of labor utilizing her private time and her private gear. They didn’t concern work in any respect. They weren’t racist or hate-filled rants or something of that nature.

It was between her and her little one’s college. It was despatched to me semi-anonymously. I personally wouldn’t have dealt with the state of affairs the way in which the worker did and suppose it might have been dealt with higher by each events, however I’ve learn by way of the correspondence and I might care much less what occurred between her and the college. I additionally don’t have the entire story, neither is it any of my enterprise. There have been no threats made, though she used some colourful non-hate-related swear phrases. She additionally didn’t point out our firm.

This worker is nice at her job. She is passionate and easy and a few of her demeanor can learn as adversarial, which is actually what I pay her for. I’ve no complaints about her work or the individual she is whereas she is right here. I don’t know her exterior of labor. I’m the proprietor and in addition her supervisor.

I don’t even wish to point out to her that I obtained the e-mail. I simply wish to say it’s none of my enterprise and delete the message and overlook about it. Can I simply not inform her I obtained something and chalk it as much as this doesn’t concern me? Ought to I reply again to the individual that this isn’t my concern (or my firm’s) or is it greatest simply to not reply in any respect?

I reply this query over at Inc. at present, the place I’m revisiting letters which have been buried within the archives right here from years in the past (and generally updating/increasing my solutions to them). You can learn it right here.
