  • "Manager" dating an employee. Kentucky

    I am a Safety manager at my place of employment and have been dating an employee in one of the company departments.

    Our company handbook states that "No employee may supervise or manage a significant other."

    I do not have anyone that directly reports to me however I am the Safety Manager over the building.

    I spoke to my boss about this and he said it would still be a conflict of interest.

    This is a matter of internal company policy, not of law.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      If your boss interprets it as being a "conflict of interest" per handbook, it is best you don't do it.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

        Agreed. No laws are being broken by you or your girlfriend. Your boss also won't be breaking any laws when he fires one or both of you.

          If your Boss is telling you this is not good for your job then you need to decide which is more important the relationship or your job. I would decide soon since you have now let cat out of the bag so its no known.
