BusinessDayOnline.com published an article quoting AGG Partner Henry M. Perlowski titled “Of Workplace Romance, Career Advancement… What’s the Risk?” Because employees continue to work longer and longer hours, many employees today find that the workplace is not only a prime location, but also sometimes the only place, where they can meet eligible singles.
