A love contract is essentially a written acknowledgement by two employees confirming the voluntary and mutual nature of the relationship.
The contract will be proof that the employer took the steps to make a safe workplace environment.
Employers have nothing to lose by requiring a love contract for a work place romantic relationship.
They have proof of taking steps to make a safe environment.
They also informed the employees of their rights in the event of the end of the relationship. When employees sign, they agree to relationship limitations in the workplace.
Enforcing a love contract protects an employee from retaliation and harassment.
