    Report to

    A. A female colleague often sexually harasses my hubby. He cannot focus on working. Should he report her to the board of managers?
    B. A female colleague often sexually harasses my hubby. He can't concentrate on working. Should he tell the board of directors?

    Are these two sentences natural to say in conversations?

    Thank you so much

    Re: Report to

    I think the least unnatural would be:

    A female colleague is sexually harassing my husband. It's affecting his work. Do you think he should report her?

    I cannot imagine anyone actually asking that question. - the answer seems obvious.

    1) I would use "husband", not "hubby".
    2) I guess the answer depends on whether or not he's enjoying it!
