5.2.11 Employment of Relatives

Individuals and those whom they consider to be an immediate family member (e.g., spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, or in-laws) may be employed by the same archdiocesan entity unless a conflict of interest arises. A conflict of interest arises when one family member supervises the other, monitors and/or audits the work of the other, or when staff morale is adversely affected by the joint employment. In that event, the location has the right to make a different work assignment. If a different work assignment is not possible, the parties involved shall choose which one will resign.

Unless authorized in writing by the senior director of human resources​ of the archdiocese, a person in charge may not hire or supervise his or her own family member.
