PLEASE INCLUDE ABSTRACT

A female employee (Tammy) approaches HR on Monday morning complaining about a male employee who hugged her Sunday Night at work. The female states her department was working over the weekend on system conversion project that had to be implemented by 7:00 AM Monday morning. The department lead Mike who is also a non-exempt employee was leading the system conversion Sunday night as requested by their supervisor. The team was excited that at Midnight Sunday when they hit the transfer switch all systems transfer over without a hitch. Mike approached Tammy with his arms extended out to embrace her. Tammy said, “Mike do not touch me, I have told you before I do not like for you to touch me”. Mike gave Tammy a big hug anyway rubbing his chest against hers lifting her feet off the floor stating, “That is reward for doing a great job, boy that feels good”. Mike had been warned before about making inappropriate comments to female employees. Tammy shared the incident with her husband who wants to confront Mike. Mike is one of the only employees who could have run the systems conversion without supervision and has received accolades from the Department Director and CEO for his system knowledge and system conversion success.

You are the HR director: How would you have handled the situation? How do you handle the Director and CEO? How do you handle Tammy’s husband?
