As the old saying goes "you don't dip your pen in the company ink." In other words, you shouldn't get into a dating or sexual relationship with a co-worker.
But consider this: according to a recent Workplace Options survey, nearly 85% of 18-29 year olds would have a romantic relationship with a co-worker, compared to just over 35% for 30-46 year olds and about 30% of 47-66 year olds.
The student is expected to: (A) analyze the use and abuse of prescriptions and non-prescription medications such as over-the-counter; (B) examine social influences on drug-taking behaviors; (C) describe chemical dependency and addiction to tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs and substances; (D) explain the relationship between tobacco, alcohol, drugs, and other substances and the role these items play in unsafe situations such as drinking and driving and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)/Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) transmission; (E) identify ways to prevent the use of tobacco, alcohol, drugs, and other substances such as alternative activities; (F) demonstrate an understanding of basic first-aid procedures; (G) demonstrate strategies for the prevention of and response to deliberate and accidental injuries such as using conflict resolution skills instead of fighting and wearing a seat belt; (H) identify and describe strategies for avoiding drugs, violence, gangs, weapons, and other harmful situations; and (I) explain the consequences of sexual activity and the benefits of abstinence. The student understands how factors in the environment influence individual and community health.
S Department of Education announced today that it had approved 5 million in grants to eight states under the federal Charter School Program.
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.
Enforcing these policies can take their toll on a company. Earlier this year, Best Buy's chief executive, Brian Dunn, stepped down after an investigation by the board discovered he had shown "extremely poor judgment" with a 29-year-old female employee.
Katherine Ruth Harper, 27, was arrested last week and charged with having an improper relationship with a student in Trophy Club, Texas, a wealthy suburb northwest of Dallas.
According to a Career Builder survey, interoffice dating has a fairly high success rate--of the 38% of people surveyed that dated a co-worker at least once, 31% went on to marry that co-worker! If you believe the stats of new employees entering the workforce, it might seem so.
The states, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Washington, will receive 7 million in grant money.
In addition, 15 charter management organizations, including IDEA Public Schools in Texas and KIPP’s public charter school network in California, will receive million in taxpayer dollars.
The affidavit says police launched an investigation into the alleged inappropriate relationship after receiving an anonymous tip through the school district website naming Harper and the student, whose identity is being withheld because he is a juvenile.
When a school official confronted the boy with questions about the relationship, he cried and admitted to sex with the teacher, according to the affidavit.
