Can love and relationships in the office work?

It is not uncommon for romances to blossom between work colleagues – generally this causes little problems but with several cases hitting the news recently, we thought we’d take a look at what can sometimes be a quagmire for employees, employers and freelancers. It can be difficult for employers to object to workplace relationships, although many wish they could operate an outright ban, regarding them as inappropriate in a business context. However, many employers will want a policy for relationships that develop in the workplace – all the details are in our Article here.

If employers have a relationship policy (in the US they have ‘love contracts’) they need to find a balance between respecting the privacy of their workers in a relationship and protecting their business’ interests. An outright ban on relationships is not practical or workable partly because employees could argue that such matters are personal and may breach an individuals’ right to a private and family life under Human Rights legislation.
