“An employee who reports to a supervisor that you supervise, has asked to talk with you about waste, poor management practices, and possible violations of company policy and the law on the part of your supervisor. You have been in your position for only a year, but in that time you have had no indications of trouble with that supervisor.
Neither you nor your company has an ” open door” policy. It is expected employees take their concerns to their immediate supervisor before bringing the information to others. The employee who wished to meet with you has not discussed the issues with her supervisors because of its delicate nature.”
