    You must have missed this statement, "He was told not to contact the HR Manager again". Look harder, it's at the tail end of story!
    I don't know if you've ever done any job hunting, but you WILL NOT get a job, if you can't communicate with HR!

    An employee at the clinic I attend for weight lost, sent me photos of himself with no clothing. I was shocked, but didn't feel comfortable in making a complaint. I should have spoken up but I also didn't want him to feel rejected also. I did not give a green light, but I should have set clear lines of boundaries and limits. There was never any physical contact and one of the other employees turned him in and he was terminated from job position.
