7.5 Nepotism

In order to ensure fair and equal treatment for all Traverse Area District Library employees, TADL establishes the following policy:

The Library Director may approve the new hire of a current employee’s spouse, domestic partner, children, parents, siblings, in-laws, members of the same household, or bona fide dependents (as established by the IRS) as long as they are not hired under a direct reporting relationship between the parties.

Applicants will be required to declare any relatives/relations listed above who are currently employed by Traverse Area District Library.  Applicants will be informed immediately if they cannot be considered for this reason.
