Personal Relationships at Work - Law & Best Practice for Employment & HR Professionals
Many individuals meet their partner at work - indeed, some polls suggest that the proportion of couples that met through work may be as high as 18%.
In many cases a personal relationship between members of staff will not interfere with work, and some polls indicate that the majority of staff are open to the possibility of dating a colleague.
However, personal relationships between staff who are working alongside each other can become problematic, for example, where there is a negative impact on colleagues, potential conflicts of interest (or perceived conflicts of interest), and particularly where the individuals are in the same team or in a line management relationship.
Aimed at employment lawyers and HR professionals, this virtual classroom seminar will consider the law in relation to personal relationships in the workplace and will offer guidance on best practice to tackle some of the tricky issues which office relationships can present.
