Manager dating subordinate
While there has been research on third-party perceptions and reactions to romantic workplace relationships, it hasn't dug deeper to look at how third parties can have an impact on the career development and progression of these star-crossed lovers.
Suzanne Chan-Serafin, a senior lecturer in the school of management at UNSW Business School, wanted to find out whether knowledge of an employee's workplace romance was used unfairly in the evaluation of their performance at work.
ICMA on Tuesday also issued a news release on the censure and sent a letter formally notifying Mayor Miguel Pulido.
The organization announced that its executive board had sanctioned Cavazos for violating two different tenets of the group’s code of ethics by dating a subordinate.
One of those tenets calls for members to “be dedicated to the highest ideals of honor and integrity in all public and personal relationships” and to earn the “respect and confidence of the elected officials, of other officials and employees, and of the public.” The other tenet prohibits members form leveraging their position for “personal gain or benefit.” Guidelines published in the news release call for members to disclose personal relationships to council members when they could mean a conflict of interest.
And the executive board noted that Cavazos had “an obligation to disclose the relationship in a timely manner and that the relationship continues,” the ICMA’s June 14 letter to Puldo reads.
Amorous relationships in the workplace aren't something to just snigger about over by the coffee machine. Moments such as deciding who to promote and who to select for training and development.
The answer, of course, is because we are human and humans have inbuilt biases and prejudices that, however hard we may try to suppress them, bubble up at strategic moments.The dating or fraternization policy adopted by an organization reflects the culture of the organization.Employee oriented, forward thinking workplaces recognize that one of the places that employees meet their eventual spouse or partner is at work.Despite the censure, Cavazos is a member “in good standing” with the group, and he’ll be attending the annual ICMA conference in September, the city manager wrote in a email dated June 8 and obtained by Voice of OC.“I apologize for not meeting with each of you and as a group to disclose the personal relationship at the onset,” the email to council members reads.These relationships make sense because the commonalities that coworkers share such as proximity to the workplace, shared interests, similar ages, children about the same age, the actual work and customers, and similar incomes, encourage friendships and potential romantic relationships.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
