Recently, there was a fallout between my manager and one of my colleagues. The circumstances regarding the fallout was childish and based on non-work related stuff. After some exchanges between these two about some manners in work environment and some harsh words from both sides, my manager waited for some apology and when he didn't get any, he decide to end contract of this colleague starting next month and she must leave after that.
I tried to meddle in this argument and talked with both parties to cool down the situation (I'm the supervisor of the team) but due to the refusal of apology from the colleague and insistence of manager to get apology, nothing really happened. Now it got to the point of no return and all the forms from HR signed and I can call my colleague, and ex-colleague.
In the mean time, one of my friends looking for the exact same position for their company. Their company is a competitor but we don't have any non-transferable of staff rules. This friend is also a ex-colleague who got terminated under the same manager 2 years ago (due to work-related stuff). he asked me if I know anyone who's looking for job in my team or anywhere else. now I don't know what to do. I want my colleague to find work for her sake. I don't get anything in this case. I just doing this for good deeds.
If I forward this offer to my out going colleague, it may result in complication and she "MAY" use it in her ongoing dispute with my manager (I already found a job through your own supervisor discussion) or maybe implies that maybe I lead the colleague to the point of no return and it will paint me as unreliable.
The question is: Should I forward the offer to my colleague ? and should my manager knows about it ?
