I’m weighing in on the David Letterman controversy as a Human Resources professional who has slept with co-workers — and married one.
- I think sex at work is okay.
You don’t have to have sex with an employee to screw her. If you use your position of authority to benefit your personal needs at the expense of the company or other colleagues, you are an asshole and you deserved to be fired.
I’m not sure Letterman’s behaviors crossed the threshold and falls into the category of sexual harassment. He’s a horny old man who messed around with coworkers. Every office has that guy. Sometimes it’s the boss.
