I received an email regarding office gossip which was cc to the head of the department. When I emailed my boss for clarification she did not respond. After some research and in person conversation with my boss days after, she said she didn’t believe it was me but she needed to address everyone in the email. I thought that was unprofessional as she should have validated the information first before sending an email implicating me as a source of the gossip.
I took offense to it. Should my boss retract the email?
