Love in the office air? Learn how to protect your employees and company from workplace harassment.When two people meet and love blooms it can be the basis for a good romance novel, but maybe not so much in the employment context, particularly when workplace romances sour. Workplace romances pose many challenges for employers. Can a consensual sexual relationship between co-workers form the basis of a sexual harassment claim? What if one of the parties is a manager? Can your company enact a no dating policy? Should an employer act on a rumor of a workplace romance? What is a love contract? This topic will answer these questions and address the key issues every employer needs to understand about workplace harassment and how to respond appropriately to these situations. Finally, the material will address workplace policies and investigation procedures aimed at avoiding liability.
