For more information on an employer's legal requirements and sample policies related to conflict resolution, please refer to the Conflict Resolution section of the HR Toolkit's list of Sample Policies on Common HR Topics.Conflict is an inevitable part of human relationships.To avoid conflicts, one partner may transfer to another part of the organization, only to find that he or she has taken a career misstep.“Don’t cross that line unless you think [the relationship] will last the rest of your life,” says Losee.That shared experience can pair you up with someone who you might not have considered your type, says Losee.So make sure you have more than just the office — and your shared frustrations — in common.
