Tell HR your secret crush

A local authority in Britain was accused this week of Big Brother behaviour, for making staff write to their manager to disclose any office romance with a co-worker.

The policy is part of a draft policy on relationships at work at Fenland District Council, near Cambridge. The document says that any employee who “embarks on a close personal relationship with a colleague working in the same team must declare the relationship to his/her manager in writing.”

Trades Union Congress spokesperson Sarah Veale said that workers should not have to reveal details of their private lives outside office time. “It’s quite common for relationships to start in the office, but having to declare your feelings via the HR department is hardly the most romantic way to make a move.”
