Hiring - employment of relatives
A policy on the employment of relatives provides a useful framework for avoiding awkward and potentially difficult work situations.
The policy can be simple and straightforward. It often states whether hiring relatives is permitted or not. If hiring relatives is permitted, the policy sets out guidelines such as stipulating that an employee cannot be directly supervised by an immediate relative.
