is lindsay lohan dating sam ronson - Federal government rules for dating employees
But others, including General Motors, IBM, and AT&T, have enacted policies strictly limiting employee romances.
Enforcing such policies is proving to be a difficult, sometimes embarrassing process.
That's why dating between supervisors and subordinates is supervisory suicide.
If unequal power relationships go sour, the subordinate could claim the affair was not consensual and file a sex harassment charge.
But the line between the two can get blurry, and a manager who engages in an office romance--particularly with a subordinate--can find himself or herself charged with sex discrimination even if no allegations of harassment are raised.
