Policies are developed to guide employees in creating a legal, ethical, harmonious workplace, not to control the bad behavior of a few.
You might consider a policy that prohibits supervisors from dating any employee who reports directly to him or her.
Office relationships are often the focus of intense gossip, so supervisors need to know how to keep their ears open for damaging behaviors.
Your organization will not tolerate sexual encounters and sexual behavior at work.
Spell out the consequences if the romance is negatively impacting the workplace.
Regardless of whether your employer has a workplace romance policy in place, you’ll want to keep your relationship off workplace radar as much as possible.
If you and your partner have contact on a regular basis, keep the contact professional. Avoid talking privately in corners or behind closed doors, regularly eating lunch together without other coworkers, and -- above all -- touching.
Limit the number of coworkers with whom you share this confidential information.
