Yes, the forced kissing incident was reported to General Manager by the victim. I think the affected young woman was told something along the lines "we will talk to him." End of discussion. (Nothing more was or has been said to the young woman.)
I told her to march down to the police dept. and report it. She didn't. Amazing how some people don't want to "cause" trouble. Above and beyond the obvious offense this action was, against her will at that, using her body for his pleasure, by force, what about potential disease being passed to her from his filthy mouth?
Thank you Taxing Matters. (The reason(s) for your interesting name might require a separate thread!
The commute to work is, legally, of absolutely no concern to employer one way or another. As is the commute from work.
But, when on the clock, on the employer's property, an employee violates the company policies on alcohol consumption or illegal drug usage, known by the people in charge to occur, and allow him to drive off intoxicated, I tend to think there has to be culpability to some extent on the employer's part. As well, it is illegal to drive while intoxicated. Any illegal action is occurring with complete and total knowledge of employer. (If I know my neighbor is drunker than a skunk and see him staggering to his car and he drives off, shouldn't this be reported to police ASAP?)
I am not talking employee being negligent driving to and from work, as in texting and causing an accident. Of course employer has no culpability.
I am talking about employer not taking any action what-so-ever to stop an employee from becoming intoxicated while on their clock, (a clear violation of their policies) and driving away to potentially cause an accident. Driving while intoxicated is against the law for obvious reasons. Knowing this person is drunk, allowing him to get drunk on company time, and not doing anything to stop him from driving off property while drunk - employer has to bear some culpability.
As to Minnesota law - well, as respectfully and delicately as I can state, all I can say is, it is, in many instances, it is absolutely -ucked up.
