I have a co-worker on a peer level with me. He is a term employee and the company has opted to not extend his term. He will be done at the end of the month. The company line is that there is not enough work to justify his role but that is clearly untrue. He feels there is some sort of management conspiracy against him but it seems clear to me that he is just not a good fit here.
With his finish date coming up, he steers every conversation with me to how two specific managers are against him, how they only want engineers of their own race, and how unprofessional they are. I don't buy any of it. I keep coming back with the fact that if he feels that is the case then working here is not a good fit for him since he would necessarily be working under one of them.
I'm a bit concerned that he is having these conversations with others and sowing discord against management in his last couple of weeks. Is this sort of concern something that should be brought to HR or kept to myself?
