If we find out that you hired your partner for your team, you will receive a reprimand and you’ll have two choices: All of us must follow our equal employment opportunity policy at all times.
For example, HR must not penalize a homosexual couple differently than a heterosexual couple when they both have violated our employee relationships policy in the same manner.
This policy applies to all our employees regardless of gender, sexual orientation or other protected characteristics.
We don’t want to place undue restrictions on employees dating each other, as everyone should be free to choose their partners.
But, we want to make sure that relationships won’t cause awkwardness or problems in our workplace.
We expect our employees to treat each other with respect and avoid hindering other people’s work.
If you want to express your romantic interest in a colleague, don’t do anything that may embarrass or expose them and always respect their time and choices. Please report them to HR if they make unwanted sexual advances.
If your relationship ends, maintain professionalism and ensure you won’t disrupt our workplace.
