I'm a GM for a CA Hotel. About a year ago I had a stupid fling with one of my managers. It lasted about 5 months and ended well. We have been all business and working fine until recently. I have been asking her to focus on some areas in need of attention, nothing that bad, but she has responded by saying I'm picking on her. She says she is going to call my boss and tell him about the fling.
My company has a policy on this, so I'm very worried I will lose my job. I was planning on denying the whole thing so its my word against hers, but wanted to get a professional opinion. I don't believe anyone knows at work of this, but she has some text messages that she sent to me recently that say "our affair has caused..." I didnt respond to that, just asking her to talk to me, but she has refused. This was 2 weeks ago, and she has been on vacation. She returns in 2 days. She told me she was going to find another job, but has retracted that saying, "why should I leave?"
Messy I know...any guidance would be helpful.
Since this mess in the last 2 weeks, I have admitted that I have a drinking
problem and have seen my doctor that prescribed me medication and I have also been going to AA. Besides being the truth (thats how I got myself into this mess originally), I know CA has some laws that protect people with alcohol problems, but I don't know if it would apply in this situation.
Also, is there any help in the fact that this happened a year ago, and that her claims of being harassed will not hold any water? There is nothing she can show in the form of harassment from me. Everything is about her doing the job correctly
