Dating subordinates workplace
Therefore, the participants in a truly "consensual" relationship cannot prove sexual harassment.The difficulty for the employer is proving that the relationship was consensual.

And the break of both independence in appearance and independence in fact will result in a negative impact on the entire workplace.
