My girlfriend is a stylist a chain salon. She loves her job and is extremely talented, honest, loyal and truly professional. But at the place she works there seems to lack of a ethics. The manager would have my girlfriend a time slot for a long time. Then move her from that slot and then try to take her clients as they walk in looking for my girlfriend. I told her to start handing out business cards with her cell number. However, she has a bigger problem now. The manager is starting her own salon and is in the process of removing the all personal contact information from the companies computer system in an attempt to steal all the salons clientele.
The manager asked my girlfriend to go with her to the new place and told her not tell anyone. She want’s to stay where she is. She doesn't want to loose her job, she doesn't want to be involved with the manager endeavor. But knowing what she knows could have a backlash effect if she doesn't speak out.
With a manager with no morals or code of ethic, my girlfriend is in-between a rock and a hard place.
What should she do?
