Podcast: Why employers should be wary of workplace romances
We discuss the problems that can occur when colleagues are in a relationship, and what HR can do to manage those issues. We also answer some commonly asked questions, including whether or not it can be harassment to ask a co-worker out on a date.
Subjects covered in this week's podcast on personal relationships at work include:
- whether or not employers need a written policy;
- what rules can be included in a policy;
- how to deal with conduct issues related to a workplace relationship; and
- questions that have arisen in case law.
