(National Federation of Independent Business) – While Valentine’s Day is fast nearing, NFIB is warning workers on workplace romances as they can lead to negative impact in the workplace.
Cases of workplace romance have been known elsewhere and they somehow encourage the lovers into performing their work better. But the eyes of the co-workers and other people would always bring the couple into negative spotlight.
In its warning, the NFIB, through its Small Business Legal Center, provides five important keys into treating office romances that must be taken heed both by the employers and the employees in the workplace.
“Employers must stop inappropriate conduct and communicate acceptable workplace behavior, especially around Valentine’s Day when employees may think it’s OK to make the move on a co-worker,” said Elizabeth Milito, senior executive counsel with the NFIB Small Business Legal Center.
