The tragedy of this story is that it’s likely the business owner – the one who had to write a check for $85,000 (plus attorney’s fees) didn’t know one of his managers was acting so irresponsibly. Yet the business owner is responsible for all of his/her manager’s actions. Get your managers trained, get a grievance procedure in writing. Oh, and make sure not to promote people who don’t have the faintest idea on how to manage people.
