"Dating a co-worker: whose business is it anyway?"
The Industrial Relations Society invites members and guests to attend a breakfast seminar hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills titled "Dating a co-worker: whose business is it anyway?"
With people spending a large proportion of their time at work, it is perhaps unsurprising that romantic relationships develop in the workplace.
Recently there have been several prominent news stories highlighting workplace romances blowing up into costly public scandals. These stories have brought this matter to the forefront and ultimately raise question - when does a personal relationship become an employer’s business?
- Rachel Dawson, Senior Associate, Herbert Smith Freehills; and
- Craig Fordham, Lawyer, Slater and Gordon.
Rachel is a Senior Associate in HSF’s Employment, Pensions and Incentives Group in Perth. She provides commercially focused employment and IR advice and representation to a range of clients, particularly within the resources sector. Rachel will discuss the topic from the employer perspective.
Craig currently works as a Lawyer in Slater & Gorgon’s Industrial and Employment law team. Prior to this, Craig worked in family law for a little over 2 years before taking a role as an Industrial Officer at the WA Police Union. Craig will discuss the topic from the employee perspective.
