This is usually observed that most of the companies don’t permit to appoint siblings/spouses or other members belonging to the same family especially within the same department. The possible reason could be to avoid any chances of conflicts, favoritism and grouping in the office which can have a negative impact on the overall company’s environment.
However, if such appointment takes place in different departments then it can be of a lesser concern for the employers because they will be working in different divisions, having dissimilar reporting lines with different sets of performance standards to be met. Nonetheless, the pros and cons associated with it should be understood because if it is identified and discussed in advance then there’s a probability that it can turn out to be a positive experience.
