By way of example, employers have a legitimate business interest in preventing employees who are in supervisor positions from dating employees who are in subordinate positions.In a supervisor/subordinate co-worker relationship, there is an imbalance of power which may generate issues in the workplace.In a better scenario, coworkers would find it easier to claim that an employee received preferential treatment from a supervisor he or she is dating.In a poorer scenario, the relationship would end badly, one of the employees could claim that the relationship was non-consensual, or that sexual harassment existed.Even if it does not violate a written policy, your boss (the CEO or the board) might not care, and view it as a lack of senior management acumen.
