Dating for restaurant managers
Then you promote them to a management role only to discover they don’t dress the part.
The solution is to have a policy in place that is 100 percent clear on expectation for how your management team is expected to dress.
Manager/employee dating, in particular, may be prohibited by policy so it is always a good idea to check with the HR department or take a look at the policy handbook to see what rules your company has. In 2008, more than 13,867 sexual harassment claims were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
When a supervisor is dating a subordinate, other workers might claim that the subordinate received preferential treatment in job assignments or pay raises, says a partner with the labor and employment practice of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham.
Third, have detailed checklists for every position for opening and closing duties including management.
And fourth, create a positive work environment where new managers feel comfortable asking for help. 3: “Me against them”Because new managers are coming from the ranks of line employees, they can come with some baggage from the department and/or shift they worked.
This can create a negative work environment, one in which a new manager would rather not ask for help for fear of looking stupid or feeling the wrath of upper management.
The solution is to put the right training and management tools in place.
In both cases, it creates a workplace where sexual harassment is taking place.
After all, the workplace is where most people spend the majority of their waking hours.
But, when those co-workers are in a manager/subordinate relationship, the problems can be even more pronounced.
For example, there can be strained relations between a new manager who was once a front-of-house employee and one or more back-of-house (BOH) crew.
The solution is to have detailed checklists for every position as stated in detail in the previous solution. 4: Dating the help The restaurant business is very social and often people are attracted to people who are confident and in a leadership role.
Even if policies don't prohibit these relationships, this is a consideration that whoever is in the power position needs to consider seriously.
