Romantic relationship cannot be reasonably controlled in the workplace.
Care needs to be taken when dealing with an issue like that.
Relationship in the workplace occurs if the employees set out to find a partner at work, and it can also happen accidentally.
An extramarital affair which begins in the office is a very dangerous situation which if care is not taken can harm the employees involves and their family members, dig deep into the company’s pocket book and of course affect the co-worker’s morale.
Although some employees don’t address this issue in the workplace because infidelity is relative. Some consider it as innocent flirtation with someone else, emotional discussion and sex with others.
Here are some things you need to know
Relationship between the employee and supervisor/boss or manager can lead to nepotism
A relationship between these two could lead to nepotism which would not be good for the business.
In line with that, such a relationship can cause the morale of the employee to plummet based on the perception of favoritism.
A policy should be implemented to prohibit relationships between the supervisors and the people under them.
Care needs to be taken
It should be noted that employers who implement a strict policy of no-fraternization or no-dating policy can restrict their employees from developing close friendships with their colleagues and get scared that their attention such as complimenting noticeable improvements from the employees new workout regimen and a new hairstyle could be considered as inappropriate.
That is a disadvantage, but in a way, it also has an advantage.
The advantage of implementing this policy is the fact that the policy could curb romantic relationships in the office and also prevent the company from getting embroiled in a sexual harassment suit when one of the parties to the affair cries foul.
