Consensual Relationship Agreements are a form of companies trying to protect themselves from legal liability if an office relationship ends in failure. It was more or less formed in the wake of Bill Clinton's extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky (Love Contract). ? ? According to one article, 58 percent of workers have dated a co-worker, 14 percent have dated a superior, and 19 percent have dated a subordinate? (Zero Tolerance) The intimacy of a relationship in a public setting like a work environment use to be a hidden affair, something that didn't garner much attention as it was normal thing.

But after the Clinton saga, things changed, litigation became a more commonplace thing and having people sign a ?love contract? is more and more common. Now businesses are worried of the hidden consequences of this office romance. If the couple breaks up, it could lead to costly sexual harassment suits and one of the parties saying it was non consensual, which would be damaging to the company.
