Should I Have Defended My Supervisor?

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about coworker complaint of boss:

How do we deal with an employee that complains about others making/taking personal calls during the day and their use of the Internet during working hours? You need to know that this person does this all day long herself and seems to be in denial of it. Her claim is that she does not talk on the phone as long and is in and out of the Internet more quickly. She actually does this all day long!

She also recently filed a hostile work environment against our supervisor of 7 years, these issues of phone calls and Internet being a part of her complaint. She filed this when the supervisor gave her a corrective action plan due to her continual incompetent work product. The supervisor was forced to resign and this employee is thrilled. Thanks for any input!
