Red Light for Workplace Romance

One-third of large businesses say they would discourage their employees from dating on-the-job.

A report in the regional newspaper consortium, Sunnuntaisuomalainen says businesses would intervene in budding on-the-job romances particularly to prevent supervisors from getting involved with subordinates.

Some companies would also discourage colleagues from pairing up, if they work in close proximity in the organisation. The employers say their concerns about workplace romances centre on eposure to financial risk. The paper interviewed 25 of Finland's largest companies for the survey.
