I had a brief intimate encounter with a colleague's wife and he found out about it. I have stated my extreme sorrow and regret over this event however he says we will no longer be able to work together.
In the meantime I have been out of the office for the last 6 weeks either taking vacation or working from home to grant him his wish to not see me. This is not a long term solution and at some point I will need to start coming back into the office. The office is open concept and has 25-30 employees. Ontario, Canada
So my question is - can I be fired? If he complains that he is unable to work in the same room does the firm have that right? Obviously I will no longer be viewed in a positive light.
