Love contracts for workplace dating

In entering into this contract, each confirms the social relationship is entirely voluntary and consensual; that neither shall allow this relationship (or its termination) to negatively impact performance; and that each will respect the decision to end the relationship and will not engage in any unprofessional or inappropriate conduct toward the other either during or after this relationship.

Chas Rampenthal is general counsel and vice president of product development at Legal Zoom.

He's also a former talk radio host (KTLK AM 1150 at Clear Channel) and an entrepreneur himself, as the founder of Legal Endeavor.

That percentage is on the rise, and it’s no surprise: we spend one-third of our lives at work.

So, is it possible to allow cupid’s arrows in the office—but steer clear of legal landmines?

But a lot of companies don't let the rank and file decide--they adopt policies that ban or limit workplace dating--all in the name of lowering liability.
