David Bradley, Head of Employment at Ramsdens Solicitors, has featured in HR Grapevine where he discusses office romances and how they have always been a tricky subject for business leaders to deal with, in light of McDonald's CEO ousted for dating employee.

David commented that particularly among US employers, it isn’t unusual to find workplace contracts and policies that dissuade relationships between co-workers and says: “This seems odd when so many people meet at work. It is justified but can lead to practical difficulties. Usually, one or both individuals are asked to move roles. This can be contentious and raises issues of potential sex discrimination, where for example it is the junior person who is forced to move. Some policies go as far as to dictate who will move and on the face of it that takes out the issue.”
