The brutal and straightforward answers to Hr-related queries and concerns.
We have this gentleman at my job who would sneak away into the lunch room and steal lunches. I once saw him taking bites out someone’s lunch and when he didn’t like it, he threw it in the garbage. We all would come to the lunch room and find our lunch thrown away in the trash with a bite taken out of it. To be honest, I find it pretty hysterical. I’m guessing I’m the only employee who has caught him doing this. The problem is, I don’t know how to bring this up to the HR. I don’t know if I want someone to get fired because of me. Shall I just let this go, until someone else catches him deer in headlights?
I firmly believe that stealing is ethically wrong. By stealing someone else’s food, that gentleman is robbing someone’s meal of the day. That person might have woken up early in the morning to prepare the meal for him. By taking a bite from someone’s lunch, he has also contaminated the meal. At the same time, throwing someone’s food in the trash is absolutely unacceptable. I feel that you should inform the HR about this matter and tell them the incident honestly. Even if someone else catches him, he may have to face the consequences eventually. Then it’s better if you report about it soon. The HR will take care of this incident tactfully and might even let him go with a warning.
