Personal relationships among co-workers pose several risks to the business. They can lead to:
- Interference or influence in day to day activities
- Nepotism or favouritism
- Breach of confidentiality
- Unacceptable conduct
- Personal conflicts in the workplace
These risks are not limited to sexual relationships and apply to any close relationship, including members of one`s family, and can occur when the relationship exists wholly within the same organisation or where an employee of a customer, supplier or competitor is involved.
