No, The "partner" obtained my bosses phone. In short, right now they are overseas on business together. My boss and I were discussing a position for me in Alaska, via text. At the end of the text I stated I do not want to discuss Alaska w/ anybody but him until his partner is gone next month. What is happening is the partner is being bought out by other members of the board and my boss told me this in secret. Apparently no body is suppose to know. My boss texted me, that when they get back this weekend the partner is going to ask me how I know he is leaving and why I don't want to discuss Alaska w/ him. My boss wants me to lie about how I know about the partner leaving because their could be legal ramifications with their deal. I want to know, legally, do I have to say anything?
Thank you. I have no intentions on pursuing a law suit on my behalf. I would like to know now, after understanding their fiduciary responsibilities, am I obligated to answer any questions, based off the text, from the partner or can I refuse to speak to him given the legal matters involved.
Legally, since the partner has only 25% ownership of the company does he 100% authority to release an employee w/o agreement from the other three partners? Is this only a company policy issue?
It is a limited liability company w/ four owners. Does that change anything?
