    ive had this lady that has been with me since day 1. shes like 50. not married, no kids, kinda wild. anyways. this new guy started for me last week and i put them in a room together so she can train him.

    well, she comes in this morning and shows me all these texts from him. going on and on about how he fell in love with her and age doesnt matter... blah blah blah.
    he called in sick today. but shes here showing the texts. anyone got advice?

    Well, if it's not welcome, you have a hostile workplace. If it is consensual, it's really none of your business. Focus on their performance.

    You can start a case against him if he starts calling in sick on Mondays. Warn him and then fire his ass if he doesn't straighten up.

    Well, if it was me, I'd tell her that unless it's a problem, you don't want to know about it. That kind of forces her hand. Document the shit out of every conversation because you may have to recall it in court if she decides to sue.

    Well, what the fuck was the point of her showing you the messages then? Ask her if she is filing a complaint or not against this guy. If not, then don't worry about it.

    i think she was showing them in a bragging sort of way. like "look what this guy half my age is saying to me"
