There was a time when it was quite common for individuals to find their spouses (or partners) in the workplace. Indeed, this still happens today, although perhaps less so.However, we know that there are risks if someone with power dates or attempts to date someone over whom he or she has direct or indirect supervisory or institutional power. There are risks everywhere you turn: Let’s just focus for a moment narrowly on a supervisor asking a subordinate for a date:Supervisor asks a subordinate for a date. Subordinate says “No.” Supervisor asks again. Problem.Supervisor asks a subordinate for a date. Subordinate says “I’m busy.” Subordinate means “I would rather die.” Supervisor hears “Ask me again.” Supervisor asks again. Problem.Supervisor asks a subordinate for a date. Subordinate says “No.” Supervisor does not ask again. However, the subordinate is subject to an adverse action by the supervisor, which is perceived as retaliation. Problem.Supervisor asks a subordinate for a date. Subordinate says “Yes.” They fall in love until they hate each other. Subordinate then claims pressure to get involved or retaliation after getting out. Problem.Supervisor asks a subordinate for a date. Subordinate says “Yes.” They fall in love. But all their loving is making others uncomfortable. Problem.We know from the #MeToo movement that more than a few men with power have abused their power in the pursuit of intimate relationships. So now is a good time for employers to revisit their policies—or to consider developing policies—to deal with intimate relationships where there is a power differential.Employers need to protect employees from harm (and, in doing so, minimize their legal risk). But employers also cannot ignore reality: Love happens in workplace settings.The problem is clear. What may be less clear is what employers should do in response. That’s why we need to chat!Please join @weknownext on March 7 at 3 p.m. ET for #Nextchat with special guest Jonathan A. Segal (@Jonathan_HR_Law). As a columnist for HR Magazine and an official SHRM Blogger, Jonathan has written extensively on the issue of workplace romance.In what we expect to be a lively and fun chat, we will discuss the following issues:Q1. What are the legal risks associated with romantic relationships in the workplace?Q2. How can workplace relationships where there is a power differential (such as supervisory-subordinate) affect other employees, teams and workplace culture?Q3. What are the perils of dating your peers in the workplace? Q4. What are the risks in romantic relationships between employees and clients/customers?Q5. Is it practical to prohibit workplace relationships where there is a power differential (such as supervisory-subordinate)? Why or why not?Q6. What are some of the potential risks of prohibiting intimate relationships where there is a power differential (such as supervisory-subordinate)?Q7. Are there alternatives to prohibitions that may minimize potential for harm and associated legal risks of work-related romantic relationships?Q8. What should an HR professional do if he or she becomes involved with an employee of the organization?

Male mammoths fell into traps more than females, giving clues to family structure When it came to mammoths, females had all the luck. Males were more likely to die in natural traps such as tar pits, ice lakes, mudflows, and bogs, according to a new study in Current Biology of DNA extracted from 98 fossilized woolly mammoths found across the Siberian landscape. Because the harsh environment destroys exposed fossils, most remains known to scientists were preserved in such traps (such as the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California, pictured above, which trapped Columbian mammoths—close relatives of their woolly cousins). Researchers were examining the genomes of these mammoths for a separate study into mammoth population genetics when they noticed that their dead remains skewed male: About 70% of those caught in natural traps carried a Y chromosome. Woolly mammoths are thought to have had family structures similar to modern elephants, where herds consist of females and young elephants, whereas adolescent and adult males disperse from the herd and roam in smaller bachelor groups or alone. Forced into unknown lands and lacking guidance from older, experienced elephants, male woolly mammoths were likelier to accidentally traipse into a trap and die, the authors conclude. Researchers of extinct mammals should be aware that fossil remains may be skewed toward a particular sex or age, and thus may not represent the whole population, they add.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*) By Michael PriceNov. 2, 2017 , 12:20 PM Kris Mercer/Alamy Stock Photo
