Suspected The Boss’s Affair

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss’ affair:

Over the past 6 months I had suspected that my boss (who is a friend) had been having an affair with a secretary in a different department. I didn’t have any hard-core proof other than just his irregular behavior and I had seen them in the same location but in separate vehicles. I approached him three different times over the course of the six months and each time he denied it.

Long story short, they were exchanging e-mails at work and the secretary left an email from my boss on her screen. Another employee found it and reported it. When I was asked about the situation, I said that I did suspect something, but didn’t have any proof so I never said anything. I previously worked in HR and was trained that you must have proof when dealing with a situation like this. Anyway, I was written up because I failed to bring this situation to upper management meaning my boss’ boss. As a part of my written reprimand, I was told to research what I had done wrong and how I should have handled the situation differently. The problem is I don’t feel like I handled the situation wrong. How could I have gone to my boss’ boss and told him that I think my boss is having an affair but I don’t have any proof? Please advise… Thank you!
