Re: Employers/managers...and co-workers
Blame it on someone else, you know, 'It's been brought to my attention that another employee (or customer) believed he/she may have smelled alcohol on you the other day (or whenever). I haven't observed this but would like to inform you that if you're ever found out to be intoxicated while here at work, we do have a zero tolerance policy for that behavior and it could result in termination.' Then go on to say, in the meantime, I'm seeing a lot of positive things in you such as ...'
Then ask her if she'd like a ride on a big bike and that she'd have to straddle the bike in the rear as you'll be driving it fast and hard and that she should hold on tight! Then remind her you also have a zero tolerance policy for sexual harrassment. Yeah, I think that will all go over quite well
