Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being passed over for promotion: I feel our careers will never advance due to our personal relationship.
Six years ago I had an affair with another employee. We fell in love and he divorced his wife 3 years ago. It happens that our boss’s wife is his ex’s best friend. She talks about us constantly at public functions in order to make us look bad. Also I had another quick affair years ago with a supervisor. When I told him I needed it to stop. He became angry and now holds that against me and my boyfriend. We both do a great job at work and both have been passed over multiple times for promotion and advancement positions. I feel our careers will never advance due to our personal relationship. Do we have any recourse?
