Love in the Workplace: The Rise of 'Love Contracts' in the #MeToo Era

" is as good a time as any to turn our sights to one of the more confounding issues employers are confronted with in the workplace — how to manage romantic relationships among employees.

And employers have a right to be concerned.

In fact, a recent CareerBuilder survey revealed that 36% of workers admit to having dated a coworker, and 30% of office romances involve a superior. With a heightened focus on sexual harassment in the wake of the burgeoning #MeToo movement, it's more important than ever that employers have a plan in place to properly address dating in the workplace.

Striking the right balance is key when implementing the ground rules for workplace relationships. The impulse for many employers in the past has been to adopt rigid non-fraternization policies that forbade all office romances. In practice, however, such policies are difficult, if not impossible, to enforce and police evenly."
