Let’s say a particular worker has a habit of being flirty with ladies.
He has a bit of a reputation at work for this sort of thing.
One day, he flirts with a particular female co-worker, who somewhat returns his flirtatious advances. She then finds out about his reputation, gets annoyed, and tells the boss. She doesn’t lie about what happened, but merely reveals the situation.
Suppose this man gets fired.
Would the woman in question owe this man restitution?
Let’s switch gears a little bit, too. What I’m about to mention is a purely hypothetical situation (as was the above).
Let’s say there’s a website forum that has moderators, and those mods are given a small salary to perform their duties. Let’s say a particular moderator likewise has a habit of being rather flirty. One day, he messages someone who he thinks is a female, and flirts with her. She speaks to him a bit for a few days, but then contacts the forum admin. The moderator gets fired.
As it turns out, the “female” was actually a male pretending to be a female. He didn’t intend to set up this mod, he merely was contacted, and didn’t reveal the truth about himself. The mod, acting on mistaken information, becomes slightly personal and slightly inappropriate, and it is this behavior that gets him fired, coupled with a reputation for having done this sort of thing with members in this past.
Would such a man owe such a moderator restitution?
My apologies if this is an odd set of questions: I’m just looking for some good information to understand some principles.
