Dating supervisor at work

Published: 28.09.2017

Dating a coworker can have unwanted consequences depending on company policies and how the relationship unfolds. What happens at home or in your personal life no matter who you're dating almost always affects your attitudes, which impacts your work — it's just a fact of life.

Does he or she tend to gossip, be indiscreet, or share personal life details with coworkers?

And both of you have similar fields of work which makes communication and compatibility so much easier to handle because both your interests and passions in life align along the same direction. When writing a workplace dating policy, it is important to reduce your potential legal liability.

Note that you should always have a policy prohibiting and enforcing sexual harassment and discrimination. Six months later, she and I have a healthy friendship, and I am dating online. She argues that any policy must be applied consistently and should set out clearly how decisions will be made.

What do you think?

Many employers see the idea of employees dating one another as potentially threatening productivity or even opening up too much liability for the employer. Relationships can be complicated…especially if that special someone is also a coworker. Is the potential relationship worth risking your good job or name? Although every work environment is different, experts advise against showing any affection towards your partner while in the office.

Ask Wendy: Dating the Boss!

Relationships between supervisors and subordinates create even more potential problems. Ask others about the potential partner. What happens at home or in your personal life no matter who you're dating almost always affects your attitudes, which impacts your work — it's just a fact of life. Even if it does not violate a written policy, your boss the CEO or the board might not care, and view it as a lack of senior management acumen.

      And that decision too, can have a big impact on your life. Often a CEO or president will look at the potential for risk and weigh that against the ability to police and enforce a policy.
