Two state executive departments have sexual harassment policies that prohibit even consentual relationships between some co-workers. Lee McGuire has the story from Jefferson City.
The state Agriculture and Health departments take their harassment policies a step beyond those of the other state agencies, and explicitly forbid sexual relationships between managers and the people they supervise.
Mary Hoskins at the state Health department says the harassment policy was designed to leave no room for people to exploit the power gap which lies between supervisors and subordinates
At the Corrections Department, spokesman Tim Kniest says that his department's sexual harassment policy is strong without such a rule.
