Hi, this won’t be a blanket policy preventing you from dating anyone at work. However, certain relationships will be under greater scrutiny than others. For example if the relations you have with the other person mean that either of you can gain benefits or preferential treatment in the workplace then it could be seen as a conflict of interest. For example, you were dating your boss, or someone with influence over your job or benefits you get then that may prevent you from taking things further with that person and remain in the job at the same time. But if the person is just someone employed by the same company and you have no professional links with them, they cannot influence your job or status and vice versa then it should not be an issue to have a relationship with them.
yes, but just a reminder that until you have 2 full years service you are not protected against unfair dismissal so until that is reached you are at risk of dismissal if the employer doe snot like what you are doing - after that they have certain rules to follow and it is unlikely they will just be able to remove you so I suggest you delay telling your employer until you have at least these 2 years under your belt
you are welcome, all the best
