Romance may sell novels, TV shows and movies, but in the employment context it is often not a positive development, especially when the workplace romance sours. For example, can you be sure the relationship is consensual and would not form the basis of a sexual harassment claim? What if one of the parties reports to the other? Can your company enact a no dating policy? What if anything should an employer do if it hears rumors of a workplace romance?
Please join attorney Janette Levey-Frisch for a webinar that addresses these and other key issues that every employer needs to understand about workplace harassment and how to respond appropriately to such situations, including appropriate policies and investigation procedures in order avoid liability.
