Some of the companies that do have policies against workplace dating do not have their policies clearly defined.
The policy should state if it is acceptable to date colleagues that are in different departments or if a relationship does develop than one of the persons involved will be moved to another department.
The more you're around someone, studies show, the more you tend to like them.
And liking, if other conditions are right, can evolve into deeper feelings.
Unfortunately a workplace romance affects everyone in the work place.
