Dear Harriet: I was tasked with training a new employee at work. I have trained many employees before. I understand the importance of being kind and gracious to new hires, because it’s easy to be intimidated by a new job, so I go out of my way to be super kind to new hires.

I found out a few days ago that the trainee was telling all my colleagues that I was flirting with her when I trained her!

I’m not sure if he was confused by my kindness or if he just decided to tell an outright lie, but my feelings are hurt by this accusation. what shall I do?

Dear Liar Trainees: You need to take steps to protect yourself. Talk to HR immediately and let them know what’s going on.

Describe how you trained the person and what feedback you are getting from colleagues. Seek guidance on how to deal with this situation.
