Dear Dr. Mimi:
One of my supervisors is flirting and developing a relationship with one of my co-workers, and their behaviors are getting less and less professional. I don’t want to be a Grinch, but company policy strictly prohibits intimate relations in the workplace. The supervisor is in a higher position than my co-worker, and it is also creating a situation of favoritism.
Should I say anything?
—Not a Grinch
Dear Not a Grinch:
You are not a Grinch! Company policies are put in place to prevent situations that can jeopardize a person’s position in the workplace. It would be wise to seek advice from your human resources person or one of your other supervisors. When you let them know what is going on, be specific about dates, times and behaviors.
