Employee Romance in the Workplace

In California, you can’t prohibit employees from dating (although you can prevent supervisors from dating subordinates).

The problem is, 50% of all sexual harassment cases come when the relationship was consensual. And, nearly half of all workers have been romantically tied to somebody from work!

Get a policy in your handbook that puts your procedures in writing. Have your attorney review it, and make sure that all parties in a relationship understand business – from your perspective – always comes first.
