Hi,

I am seeing Employment of Relatives policy in my present and previous firm. What is so special about it. They are not going to offer employment just like that since someone is a relative of existing employee right. Then what is so special about that policy, Am I missing something here, please let me know. People have to prove their skill in interviews and go through all the existing process before securing a job. Then what is this employment of relatives policy bringing new? I think many of the Indian IT firms might be having this policy. If someone has any idea please shoot.

Thanks
Ram

So what does the policy mention ? Is the referral of someone related to you not allowed ?

Thats precisely what I dont understand. What's so special about this policy and different from existing recruitment guidelines of any firm.I think companies from India might be having this in their policy book. I want to hear from them.

Actually I meant that as a serious question. What are the contractual contents under the heading 'Employment of Relatives policy' ?

They are not going to offer employment just like that since someone is a relative of existing employee right



You would be surprised

Don't need to be surprised -- just need to think about it. You are the hiring manager. Your boss, or your boss' boss recommends his son as an intern. He is an idiot. What are you going to do? Are you going to risk your career over an internship?

Many companies I have worked for (in the U.S.) have a policy about hiring relatives. One was a retail chain that said two related employees could not work at the same store. Another allowed it, but only if one was not a direct supervisor of the other - and so on. My current company (27,000+ employees) has no policy I am aware of, but I've never really looked.

It's kind of hard to say "what's so special about it" without knowing what it says. It might say "Hiring of relatives is ENCOURAGED" or it might say "Hiring of relatives is NOT ALLOWED".

How are we supposed to answer if we don't know which?

Well, I think I got what it meant in our firm..The policy is primarily to say that relatives cannot be employed in direct supervisory position. Otherwise relatives of the employees are eligible to get employed in the firm. So nothing special, they only want to say relatives cannot be positioned in direct supervisory role or those with conflicts of interest.

That makes a lot of sense.
