Her Co-Worker Threatened Her On Social Media, so She “Joked” That Her Husband Should Send An Anonymous Email and Get Her Fired, but Should He?

A man recently reached out for some advice about whether or not he should report his wife’s co-worker to HR. Here’s what happened.

It Was a Hostile Environment

A man’s wife would come home from work and complain about her day. The main issue seemed to be one particular co-worker who had become increasingly hostile.

The co-worker was getting very difficult to work with, and the man’s wife was upset about the situation.

They Had Spoken to HR Already

This wasn’t anything new, and it wasn’t something HR wasn’t aware of. In fact, the co-worker had had a number of conversations with HR over the last few months, mainly relating to their attendance and work performance.

The man said, “It’s obvious HR is looking for a reason to let her go without exposing themselves to liability—firing her could look like retaliation for something she recently did.”

It Was a Small Office

What made things even worse was that the man’s wife couldn’t get away from her co-worker. It was a very small office with only three people (the wife, the co-worker, and a manager) working there.

They Used to Be Friends

Once, before all this started, the man’s wife and her co-worker were friends, or at least on friendly terms. However, something happened that the man’s wife wouldn’t discuss, and now the atmosphere is an uncomfortable one.

They Were Blocked on Social Media

Whatever the issue was, it was bad enough for the co-worker to block the man’s wife and her manager on social media.

However, one person they forgot to block was the man himself, so he could still see precisely what they were posting.

It Made for Unpleasant Reading

What the man saw on social media made him upset, angry, and concerned. The co-worker was posting troubling updates about someone who could only be the man’s wife (although she was never named), and the posts were becoming threatening and even violent.

He Wanted To Contact HR

The man’s wife tried to make light of the situation and told him not to get in touch with HR about it, even though he really wanted them to be aware of the posts.

However, even though his wife said not to do anything, she also joked that he should send an anonymous email to HR and even left the contact details he would need lying around for him to find.

Should He Do It?

So the question is, should the man send the anonymous email and let HR know about the violent social media posts, or should he stay out of the situation altogether?

One person urged caution: “This isn’t helping; this is getting involved more than you should.”

But another said, “Workplace violence is a real threat and shouldn’t be taken lightly. You are right to be concerned with this woman’s posts.”
