Mark Whitney was recently quoted in an article appearing in the Boston Globe concerning the increased use of “Love Contracts” by employers in response to relationships in the workplace and the #MeToo movement. The article is titled: Dating a co-worker? You may need a love contract, and it contains a sample agreement as well.
The article begins, “Many companies already forbid supervisors from asking out subordinates, but some are cracking down on romance altogether, employment lawyers and human resource consultants say. Others are looking into love contracts — known more formally as consensual relationship agreements — in which co-workers who are romantically involved sign a document stating that they are together voluntarily and are aware of the rules surrounding workplace dating.”
Mark and the lawyers at Whitney Law Group, LLC, advise employers in their use and implementation of such agreements. WLG also specializes in representing executives for a variety of work-related issues, including negotiation of love contracts.
