[HISTORY: Adopted by the Mayor and Borough Council of the Borough of Berlin 11-17-1997 by Ord. No. 97-21. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Officers and employees — See Ch. 46.
No member of a family shall be in a position that provides supervision over another member of the same family. This precludes the acceptance of applications for employment from relatives for positions in the same department where supervision conflicts exist or where, through promotion, supervision conflicts could exist. When, in the normal selection process, relatives of Borough employees are considered for appointment or promotion, the selection shall be deferred to the Business Administrator for final action.
No person who is a relative of any paid full-time or part-time employee shall be considered for employment by the Borough where one of said relatives will be in a supervisory position over the other.
For the purposes of this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- A mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, husband, wife, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law or daughter-in-law.
This policy is not for the purpose of depriving any citizen of an equal chance for employment with the Borough but is solely intended to eliminate the potential for preferential treatment of the relatives of governmental personnel.
