Sean Bateman is the younger brother of depraved Wall Street broker Patrick Bateman.
He's also a drug dealer who owes a lot of money to "fellow" dealer Rupert Guest, as well as a well-known womanizer, for he sleeps with nearly half of the female population on campus. She's saving herself for her shallow boyfriend, Victor Johnson, who's left the States to backpack across Europe. When asked why he made so many changes from the book, Roger Avary replied with a story about Stanley Kubrick.
What’s not legal, though, is to always have women be the ones who have to leave.
If indeed that’s how your company does it, that’s sex discrimination and is illegal.
I’d say that you have to decide if you want to work for a company that operates that way.
(And that’s not a loaded question; you can certainly decide for plenty of legitimate reasons that you do.) But if you decide that you do, then yeah, I’d avoid hanging out with your male coworker socially, unless you’re prepared to potentially lose your job over it.
Two of my coworkers have warned me to be careful, as there have just been rumors of people in the past possibly having relations and the woman was always the one to be terminated.
There are jerks out there, thank God, who make stuff interesting.
I applaud the director always who can put that in my face.
It is indeed legal to prohibit dating between coworkers (with a few exceptions, such as in California, where courts have ruled that the state constitution provides broader privacy protection in employment matters).
And you can indeed have a policy that requires one of the parties to move on if a relationship happens.
