Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
It's definitely bad management to put you two in close proximity like that, but unfortunately it's not illegal, as employers are not required to take into account personal relationships when making scheduling and hiring decisions. So, I'm afraid to say that the most you can do is reason with your boss and/or HR and try to get them to work around this personal conflict. No law requires them to, though I truly wish I could tell you otherwise.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
