Hey all--I'm trying to gauge how much I should trust/be okay with our company's response to our abusive boss. This boss is prone to rage, outbursts, swearing at people, outlandish accusations, etc., in addition to your garden-variety passive aggressiveness and forcing people out when he doesn't like them. He also made a series of inappropriate sexual jokes/remarks to female employees. HR did a full investigation and also documented allegations of racist jokes, disparaging comments against company leadership, stuff like that. Our whole team has been fully engaged in this for months, hoping for a meaningful outcome. It's been exhausting, to say the least.
We've now found out the planned response: he will sign something saying that any further behavior along those lines and/or any retaliation, will result in immediate termination. I think we all had gotten to the point of hoping they'd just fire him outright, though I think I can see the reasoning: this approach protects the company from a wrongful termination suit.
This is the first (hopefully only) time I've been through something like this. Is this a reasonable response? What else should I be thinking about as I'm now anticipating ongoing interactions with a boss who now knows his entire team participated in an investigation against him?
