CHICAGO, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- More U.S. workers are dating the boss -- 21 percent say they have dated the boss, up from 14 percent last year, a survey finds.

CareerBuilder.com's annual office romance survey finds nearly four-in-ten employees say they have dated someone with a higher position in their organization.

Twenty-five percent of men who dated the boss said the relationship helped move their careers forward, compared with only 13 percent of women.

"Policies on office romance vary from company to company, and it's the responsibility of the worker to know where their employer stands," said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder.com.

"It's important to remember that even if both sides are willing participants, office relationships could have repercussions. One-in-10 workers say their office romance drove them to leave their job."
