Should Employers Police Workplace Romances?
Workplace policies and office romances: Engage CEO, Jay Starkman, talks to Fast Company magazine.
"The old approach for many companies was to ban office dating as a way to avoid potential liability," he says. "I couldn’t be more against that. It’s like Prohibition; all the ban does is force the activity underground. People aren’t going to stop dating because of a policy. It may have a little chilling effect, but that hurts culture because people end up sneaking around."
