Ethics of dating a coworker
At the very least the workplace becomes an uncomfortable place to be.
Surveys indicate that office dating is more common than one might think.
Hi, I’ve committed one of the biggest professional don’t’s: I’ve started dating someone I work with.
I’ve checked the HR manual and the only mention of relationships in the workplace is that you can’t be the manager of someone that you are related to or romantically involved with, and neither is the case with us.
If you find yourself falling for someone in the workplace, it may be best to resist.
Read your employee handbook for any specific regulations your business has forbidding inner-office dating; some companies have rules regarding these matters of the heart.
An additional 12% are on the sidelines but looking to join in. Employees between the ages of 35 and 44 are the most likely demographic to date a coworker, with 44% acknowledging that they had done so.
I’m not sure where it’s going but if we continue to date, it might be hard to continue to keep it a secret.
