BLR Explains How Employers Can Safeguard against Negative Consequences of Romantic Relationships between Coworkers

A new infographic from Business & Legal Resources (BLR) illustrates why employers can't afford to simply look the other way if they have employees who are in a romantic relationship together.

The infographic provides an overview of the potential negative consequences—including employee lawsuits—for the employer if a workplace romance goes sour. It also provides employers with practical advice and steps to take to protect themselves from these hazards, including possible legal liability. The infographic, Workplace Romance is a Potential Nightmare for Employers, can be accessed here.

The infographic also links to a video featuring BLR Legal Editor Joan Farrell, who explains these workplace hazards—and best practices for employers to safeguard against them—in further detail. The video can also be accessed directly here.
