Developing a Policy of Co-Worker Dating


When considering an anti-dating policy for company workers, an employer must decide the type of relationships that are absolutely off limit, the type that are tolerated. The policy would have to also state the penalty for violation of the policy. For example dating among those at the same level may be treated differently than dating among upper management and inferior employees. The severity of the penalty may also prove the policy impractical to implement. In implementing policies, the employer must be careful to make decisions about how to apply the policy to avoid gender discrimination. Even policies that are gender neutral may prove discriminatory if the policy has discriminatory impact. For example the policy may state that if a violation of no dating policy occurs, the lower paid employee will be transferred out of the location. While this policy may be intended to be perfectly non-discriminatory towards females, a female employee may challenge it on the ground that usually women have lower compensation.
