I work for a very small company: 4 employees including myself. We recently let go of our warehouse person. My customer service mentioned to me her boyfriend was unemployed and still looking for work. I simply replied back that it would be a conflict having her boyfriend work with us and made light of the situation saying it would be awkward if he wasn’t a good employee.
She sent my boss the resume, and my boss forwarded it to me. My boss has left it up to me to make the decision and had mentioned if she knew I felt that way she would have never agreed to look at the resume.
What do I do now? I don’t want to hire him as i don’t agree with working with significant others. Perhaps if I had a larger group of employees maybe but it would be just the 3 of us most of the time.
