Do I Tell Them We’re Dating?


Dear Experts,

I started a job 6 months ago and it’s going well. A couple months on-the-job, we had a company event and I met someone from another department. We went on a date and have been dating in secret ever since.

However, now we’ve been put on a project together and feel like it will be impossible for people not to find out. Should we say something?

Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:

Q#306 Yes. It’s better that you make deal with the situation now than risk being let go later for a conflict of interest. (@gradversity)

Q#306 If it could be a conflict of interest, then you might want to tell someone. Good luck! (@beneubanks)

Q#306 Telling them clears the air, but puts you on the performance radar. So, keep interaction strictly prof. (@jtodonnell)

Q#306 Tell ur bosses b/c better if u tell than boss finds out l8r. Anti-dating policies not enforceable BTW. (@juliaerickson)
