With Valentine’s Day passing last week, it is appropriate to talk about office romances. After all, Valentine’s Day may be the beginning of relationships that may spawn from spending so many hours in the office together.
Who can’t resist the lure of brand new office romances? They are cute and darling; especially when people go to great lengths to keep it a secret. But these relationships may only be cute when they involve people of the same rank. Things may be viewed differently when the romance is between a supervisor and a subordinate. Essentially, there are potential legal problems that can arise.
