Review Your Dating Policy in Light of the #MeToo Movement

Dating policies have become common in the workplace. With the #MeToo Movement, employers should give their policies another look to ensure they meet the needs of the organization. Often called "anti-fraternization" policies, the rules are generally designed to manage romantic relationships in the workplace. 

Typical dating policies have provisions such as the following:

· The employer's policy on whether to prohibit or simply limit fraternization between co-workers and managers and subordinates.

· The requirement to report dating relationships.

· A description of the company policy of upholding proper boundaries between employees.

· The employer's requirement to modify reporting structures such as transferring a superior who is in a relationship with a subordinate.

· The prohibition on physical contact between employees during work hours.

· A reference to the employer's anti-harassment policy and harassment reporting mechanisms.
