Sample Policy
Employment of Relatives

The company discourages the hiring of relatives of current employees. However, in the event an exception is made, relatives may be hired by the company if (1) the persons concerned will not work in a direct supervisory relationship, and (2) the employment will not pose difficulties for supervision, security, safety or morale.

For the purposes of this policy, relatives are defined as spouses, children, sisters, brothers, mothers or fathers. Current employees who marry will be permitted to continue employment with the company provided they don't work in a direct supervisory relationship with one another, or otherwise pose difficulties for supervision, security, safety or morale.

If employees who marry or live together do work in a supervisory relationship with one another, the company will attempt to reassign one of the employees to another position for which he or she is qualified, if such a position is available. If no such position is available, then one of the employees may be required to leave the company.
