Seeking some advice.
We currently have a small group of 3 individuals residing in the same team. All have recently been disciplined for various reasons.
It has now been brought to a senior managers attention via an email from another employee that the 3 individuals have been openly discussing the process, panel members & level of warnings received.
The employee has explained in the email that the behaviour of the 3 individuals has affected her, making her feel uncomfortable while affecting moral & productivity within the team.
The discussions taken place, can this be a breach of confidentiality & viewed also as a breakdown of trust & confidence.?, therefore proceeding with an investigation that may result in formal action.
Or should I act as a voice of reason, & advise the manager to manage the situation informally in the hope of early resolution & maintain relationships
Thanking you in advance
