Yes I have read carefully, my dear chap. What part of "Prohibit Romantic or Intimate Relationships Between Individuals in a Reporting Relationship" is not clear to you? That's page 9 of the report's summary.
For something that has been written or endorsed and approved by people with advanced legal qualifications and experience, it is very reflective of the company's culture. It would be difficult to believe that it is merely a poor choice of wording.
What you might have come across, like the rest of us, are policies prohibiting (or placing additional controls on) subordinate reporting between people in a relationship, which is a different matter.
> It does *not* mean you cannot have relationships in the company.
As written, that is exactly what it means. Again, showing its true colours.
