From Attracted to Your New Hire
by Roberta Chinsky Matuson for monster.com

Sticky Situation:

I recently recruited a woman for a sales position in our company. It was obvious from the start that there was a strong attraction between us. I find it hard to meet nice women and I am afraid that if I don’t pursue a romantic relationship with this woman I will be alone forever. Is it appropriate for me to ask her out?

Our Expert Says:

Does your company have a policy on dating in the workplace? If so, where does this situation fall? If it is against company policy to date people that you work with, decide how much of a risk you are willing to take to date this person.

HR people are typically held to a higher standard than other people in the organization because they are the ones who are responsible for making and enforcing personnel policies. If it is against company policy to date people who are employed by your company, and word gets out that you have, you will probably find yourself seeking employment elsewhere. This kind of termination won’t look great on your records. An HR person being terminated for breaking company policy is like a fireman being caught setting fire to a building. It’s unlikely that either party will have an easy time finding work in their field again.
