We spend most of our waking hours at work and therefore build many casual and personal relationships in the workplace. It is possible for two people to get interested in each other and become personally involved. Should two employees who work together or supervise each other enter into a personal, non-work related relationship, one or both employees may have to be transferred.
We realize the typical work based personal relationship have no adverse impact. However, in cases where the relationship deteriorates, it can lead to other issues that seriously affect the workplace. Some of these issues include revenge, sabotage, rumors, depression, false accusations, sexual harassment and more.
In short, workplace relationships generally become issues after a breakup and for this reason we stand to enforce this policy.
