To avoid conflicts of interest and the appearance of favoritism or bias and to enhance supervision, security, and morale, the Village of Addison believes it advisable to prohibit the employment of relatives in a direct supervisory relationship or to prohibit having two (2) relatives employed in the same department/division. In addition, this policy bars the hiring or employment of an employee's relatives in any position that would: 

  • Have the potential for creating an adverse impact on work performance; or
  • Create either an actual conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest, such as the relative having an auditing or control relationship to the employee's job. 

 “Relatives” (including blood/step/in-law/adopted/legal guardian) are defined as spouse, mother, father, sister, brother, child, uncle, aunt, grandparent, grandchild, or any individual with whom an employee has a close personal relationship, such as a domestic partner, co-habitant, or significant other. The same prohibitions apply to employees who marry, cohabitate, or become related by marriage.  The provisions of this policy are not limited to personal or familial relationships amongst supervisors, managers, and subordinates. The policy also includes personal and/or familial relationships between individuals working as peers in any department when such relationship actually disrupts the operation of the department or the Village.
