If Alice is having conflicts with Bob and the issue is brought to the boss and the boss doesn't rectify the issue, and also warns Alice that it is advised not to go to HR, what do you do?
The conflict is not of any type of sexual harassment. The conflict is about just making Alice work environment difficult and strenuous because of Bob jealous and envious ways about Alice. Seems like a petty issue, but Bob's jealous and envious emotions towards Alice is making it difficult to work in this environment. It has been brought to this boss' attention and the answer is just deal with it because Bob apparently has personal issues and her life is hard outside of work.
The boss, which is also the director of this particular company, warns Alice not to notify HR because they don't care about what happens at this facility.
What does Alice do at this point? Continue to work in a uncomfortable environment, take it to HR (being that Alice was warned not to), deal with the problem, just find a new job, or report the situation and the boss for warning them not to go to HR? Doesn't an employee have the right to go to HR if an issue arises?
