Looking for advice without giving too many details...
I am a new supervisor and one of my duties is to chair a committee of interdisciplinary staff ~ about 20+ people. At a past meeting, before I was hired, one committee member stole the floor and engaged in personal attacks against one of my employees. From what I can gather nothing was done. The employee was very hurt and is fearful of this individual.
We will have repeated interactions and meetings with this individual in the future. How would you handle this? Has this ever happened to you? I want to be proactive but I don't want to escalate the issue further.
