I have found out that a colleague of mine who I know on a personal level was recently found guilty of horrific child sex offences. He did not go to prison but has to do community service. The company I work for knew of this back in November 2015 when this was first being investigated. He was still allowed to work in the office up until the last few months when he started working from home. He is now convinced but is still being allowed to work for the company. Apparently they 'need' him but none of the staff have been told about anything. This company is a very reputable travel company who offer family trips and also have a massive education department and deals with a lot of schools. I've been told by HR they have procedures to follow and cannot just sack somone???? A previous company I worked for had a similar situation and the guy was sacked on the spot Is there something I'm missing?
