If you’re looking for love in the workplace as a manager, you’re looking in the wrong place.
Here, a manager wants to be liked by everybody. Most managers want employees to be their friend. Guilt by association (going out to lunch or associating with every employee). You get paid the big bucks to exercise good judgment.
Managers should routinely do self-assessments regarding their supervisory style. That is, managers should examine his/her own conduct, and make adjustments, if warranted, before it rises to a formal complaint (i.e., resolve issues at the lowest possible level—informal complaint stage).
Don’t play favorites with employees on the job (sex implication here).
What about William Jefferson Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky (i.e., the former President stood trial in the Senate for impeachment from the Office of the President). Query? Is lust lawful in the workplace? Query? Office romances—are they unlawful? How does consensual sex play out in the workplace?
Although there was a decline in the number of complaints filed, EEOC Administration Judges issued 232 decisions finding of discrimination. Federal Agencies paid monetary benefits totaling $51.7 million to EEO complainants as a result of final agency decisions, settlement agreements, and final agency actions in which agencies agreed to fully implement EEOC Administration Judge’s decisions.
