NBC staffers have been ordered to report any inappropriate relationships in the workplace or risk being fired, Page Six of the New York Post is reporting.

The orders are part of strict new anti-sexual harassment rules sparked by the firing of "Today" show host Matt Lauer, according to Page Six.

"Romantic relationships at work are not exactly unusual, but now NBC says it is taking a zero-tolerance approach," a source said. "Staffers have been told that if they find out about any affairs, romances, inappropriate relationships or behavior in the office, they have to report it to human resources, their superior or the company anti-harassment phone line. Staffers are shocked that they are now expected to snitch on their friends."

The new rules also dictate how to hug colleagues, and even stipulate not sharing taxis home from work and not taking vegans to steakhouses, Page Six reported.

Lauer was fired on Nov. 29 after allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace, The New York Times reported.

Lauer had worked as an anchor on "Today" for more than 20 years.
