Lord God... the DRAMA! Unlawful, really? Just say no thank you. If he ACTUALLY harasses you after that, tell a supervisor. I understand that Its a capital crime to ask you to Dinner, so I pray that no one ever ever ever does it again. I am truly stunned by the silliness of this. Shame on all of you who are feeding it.
No! it's not lawful at all it is against the law. The reason being is that your number was given only for employee and employer purposes not to be harassed by unprofessional people. It's called harassment and that's illegal punishable by law. ((((report it immediately)))
Depending on the employer-employee relationship policy at your workplace, your employer sending you a dinner invitation may not be unlawful. Some employers actually have a very open relationship with their employees, and will even conduct business meetings at their homes. I suggest that you talk to an attorney about this and find out what your options are.
No, but it is a good way to secure a spot in the work place. I had a boss who I was uneasy around. He text me from his personal phone and we went out drinking together. Things were awesome after that. But if you got a min wage job...and their opposite sex, way inappropriate if they're not hot.
Probably not illegal, because there's no way to prove that it isn't about business. In order to copy or tape conversations by law you have to tell him that you're recording--he'll clam up after that. I would definitely have a talk with his superior & say hey Mr. X is harassing me, his messages are full of sexual innuendos & if it doesn't stop I 'm filling a sexual harassment complaint with the police and attorney
if you feel it is inappropriate it is called harassment. talk to your hr if you feel that by say no you will be jeopardizing your job. unfortunately you need to document your own attempts to get them to stop. if it continues, contact an employee help line, your shop steward if you're unionized and finally an attorney. good luck, this is a tricky situation.
I'm still on the fence with this one, your not really saying that he's harassing you, only that he has called to ask you to dinner. If you do not want to go, simply tell him this. But if he continues to call after you have said your not interested, then this makes things a little different. If this is the case, do not be ugly, just ask him to please stop. If he does not, then report it to your HR or supervisor, someone over him.
