Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Should he consider denying it since there is no hard evidence to support the claim and would then be a he said she said situation?
Or should he maybe refuse to answer their questions without legal representation?
If they terminate him, he'll get a severance pkg, so unemployment means little to him. In past instances they've let directors and VPs go for such affairs, but there is also a few examples where they kept a VP who had well publicized affairs with people working for him. I am looking for the best strategy/defense for him. His main goal is to not get fired. The person he had the affair with is probably not driving this, as they have a good firendship, but her husband is most likely the one who brought it to their attention and driving this.
