    If I as a part timer was dating a sup on the same shift and he was written up for it and he was moved to a different shift could we continue to date. We never bring it to work as most of the time he is not my immediate sup but does stand in occasionally.

    When I first started, I was dating my immediate sup and a young intern. It was very hard to keep it a secret, especially from each other. Working was a nightmare, but the nights!!

    Oh wait, that was a dream

    NOOOOOOOOOO, one of you needs to quit if you continue to date, its a conflict of interest if you do and one of you probably will end of getting fired, probably him since he knows better and been disciplined already

    The sup can get fired. The employee cannot be fired, there is nothing in the contract regarding off-the-clock relationships. The sup, on the other hand, has no rights so if the company doesnt like what is going on they can fire or transfer him.

    We do have a PT sup in our building that is married to a feeder driver. She (the PT sup) was informed that her marriage would disqualify her from ever being a FT sup, which she agreed to. It is allowed because she will never be in a position to supervise him.

    U.P.S. at no time has the right to tell you who you can and cannot be friends with, date, marry or even have casual sex with. There are LAWS to protect you in any of these instances. U.P.S. can have all the policies they want, once it contravenes a statute or law the policy becomes null and void. Law supersedes policy.

    Those laws are not in Georgia since many have been fired and none won their lawsuits. I guess it varies by state so know your rights before you intercourse.

    The UPS Policy Book doesn't address fornication, just relatives and marriage. "...we discourage continuation of the full-time or part-time emplyment of any employee who marries another employee while either person holds a management position." As sober noted, the hourly is untouchable, the supe isn't.

    Don't get your lovin ( polite) where you get your check or you will end up losing your lovin (again polite) and your check. That is all. :love:

    Always remember the guiding principle of relationships in the workplace:
    "You can screw up, but you can't screw down"

    Sigh. the answers you get to this question. Ups has moved him to a different shift to seperate you two. that was apparently their solution in this mess. So you folks are ok for now. If he wants to advance with the company then you may have to quit and leave the company at some future date.

    We had a manager sleeping a specialist that reported to him. When they found out, they didn't move her or him from our department, just had her report to someone else in the same group (the manager friend). Supposedly they had to sign something saying the "relationship" would not continue, but it did. The specialist started retailating against the rest of the group for rattting them out and they fired the manager and the specialist.
