WASHINGTON – Dating a co-worker isn’t taboo for many Americans.
A recent CareerBuilder survey finds 38 percent of all working Americans have engaged in some kind of relationship with a co-worker.
Thirty-one percent say their office romance led to marriage, and about 18 percent admit to dating a boss.
The top five industries for office romance are:
- Hospitality (47 percent dated a co-worker)
- Financial services (45 percent)
- Transportation and utilities (43 percent)
- Information technology (40 percent)
- Health care (38 percent)
But dating a coworker wouldn’t fly at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department in Tennessee.
The department has a strict no-dating policy, meaning if you start dating, you have to leave the force, msn.com reports.
