Life isn’t a episode: You shouldn’t hit on anyone you could also fire.There’s a reason why 99 percent of companies with workplace romance policies forbid this kind of dating, according to the Society for Human Resource Management.“Maybe [they’ve been told] they’ll get a raise or will get promoted.”Plus, if things don’t work out, it’s most often the lower-level employee — usually a woman — whose career gets derailed.
Don’t perch on the edge of your colleague’s desk and ask them why they’re single.
