As the old saying goes "you don't dip your pen in the company ink." In other words, you shouldn't get into a dating or sexual relationship with a co-worker.
But consider this: according to a recent Workplace Options survey, nearly 85% of 18-29 year olds would have a romantic relationship with a co-worker, compared to just over 35% for 30-46 year olds and about 30% of 47-66 year olds.
In December 2000, Ellis began dating Glenda Greathouse, a white hourly employee who worked at UPS’ phone center.
Under the company’s nonfraternization policy, management-level employees are not allowed to have a romantic relationship with any hourly employee.
Ellis admitted to Wade that he was dating Greathouse.
Wade then told Ellis that he was “crazy” for dating Greathouse because the relationship violated UPS’ nonfraternization policy.
After firing CEO Dov Charney last month, American Apparel decided to update its company code of ethics with stricter guidelines regarding interoffice relationships.
According to the new policy, “No management-level employee may make sexual advances, welcome or unwelcome, toward any subordinate.”Considering Charney’s time with the company was riddled with allegations of sexual harassment, it’s no surprise that the company wants to take a more conservative approach to fraternization.
In early 2004, however, UPS employee relations manager Brenda Baker learned that the two were dating and notified Ellis’ supervisor, Angela Wade.she's filing for divorce just 2 months after tying the knot.GG and hubby Shalom Yeroushalmi have irreconcilable differences.Chas Rampenthal is general counsel and vice president of product development at Legal Zoom.He's also a former talk radio host (KTLK AM 1150 at Clear Channel) and an entrepreneur himself, as the founder of Legal Endeavor.
