Her colleague said that they were actually in an intimate relationship, which was refuted by my friend.
During the trial an associate of the defendant backed up the claim. The HR did not interview anybody else and believed it although there were no other evidence except word of the mouth.
The HR suspended the defendant for only 10 days, but they ALSO SUSPENDED MY FRIEND for 5 days because they believed she was really having an affair.
She was not given any chance to refute the allegation formally.
She was interviewed only once.
When she asked why she was also suspended, the HR replied "nagreklamo ka pa kasi"
Can there be a case of moral damages here? Thanks in advance!
