- Persons who are married, become married, or live in cohabitation with another employee--or who are a parent, child, or brother/sister of another employee--are not generally eligible for employment in a position--or assignment in the same department, program area, or facility--where the workplace relationship could result in a supervisory, safety, security, or morale condition that may be unacceptable to the organization or to co-workers.
