Partners separated for own good

Fifty
per cent of employers believe employees who are in a romantic relationship
should not be allowed to work in the same team.

However,
a study by IRS Employment Review shows that very few organisations have clear
policies for dealing with relationships – with just 10 per cent having a formal
written policy on office relationships.

The
most common way of dealing the issue is an ‘informal chat’ with a manager.

Almost
40 per cent of organisations have a section on relationships in their code of
conduct or employee handbooks.

Studies
show that one in two Britons meet their long-term partner at work.  www.irsemploymentreview.com
