Love is in the... Workplace?
By Geoffrey Lacy and Jodi Arndt Labs
Wednesday, February 14, 2024
7:30AM – 9:30AM
ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Statistics suggest that instances of coworker romance are on the rise, including relationships in which there is a superior-subordinate work relationship. In this Valentine’s Day special program, we will discuss the concerns, considerations, and safeguards employers should be aware of when it comes to maneuvering workplace relationships, especially in the event that the relationship does not work out. The Attorneys will discuss employer responsibilities relative to sexual harassment, favoritism, nepotism, the efficacy of “love contracts” and other relevant considerations, in the context of workplace romance. The session will discuss pitfalls, policy considerations, and liability exposure in the context of real-world scenarios.
