How to handle sexual misconduct at work

Wow. Just wow. With an HR manager this week, is it any wonder why people hate HR? What else are they not acting on?

I actually sent the person two different emails clarifying what was going on because I can’t believe he/she needed an outside opinion. Sex in the bathroom=not appropriate.

It brings literal meaning to “screwing around” on the job.
