Can my boss tell me who I can and cannot date if there is no policy about it?

Asked by CupcakesandTea (353points) June 20th, 2010

I am dating a guy at work that my boss cannot stand for whatever reason it may be. We have been trying to keep our relationship quiet but somehow it got back to the boss that we are together. So my boss calls me to his office and basically tells me if I value my career then I would end the relationship. He called my guy in his office and told him the same thing. There are not any policies against co-workers dating (heck some of them are married to each other!). Can he really do this and get by with it? Isn’t this harassment? I know for a fact that this wouldn’t be an issue if I was dating any other person at work. Can he really hurt my (and his) career and get by with it?
