What is Anti-nepotism Policy? | Meaning & Definition | Akrivia HCM

Anti-nepotism laws are in place to ensure that no one can supervise, reprimand, work with, or have any influence over a close relative’s recruitment, remuneration, or promotion.   

Organizations may adopt an anti-nepotism policy to guard against nepotism-related favoritism, which can cause workplace stress as well as low morale and job satisfaction among other employees.   

Anti-nepotism legislation is justified for a variety of grounds, including:   

  • avoiding getting involved in domestic emotional issues  
  • preventing supervisory issues between spouses and family members  
  • avoiding favouritism or the impression of favoritism in hiring decisions  
  • vacations and days off to avoid scheduling conflicts  
  • avoiding the influence of family members in workplace grievances and problems
