Disciplinary Action for Employee having Extramarital Affair


An employee was found to have an extramarital affair by his supervisor, and had surfaced to HR for opinion. This surfaced when the mistress came to look for him. One of our HR Rep raised the alarm to her supervisor and shared with all of us, suggesting that a Warning Letter must be issued.

What I think

Firstly, there is no law stating that it is illegal to commit Adultery. Secondly, our Company does not have a Code of Conduct that states one must be faithful to his / her other half (I doubt any companies will have that). Yes, there is a moral issue (at least I felt that way), but it does not warrant any Disciplinary Action.

Do you agree? If not, what will you do?
