Several of you need to learn the definition of "nepotism" according to MO law, like "Thomas T" explained it. In some cases the hiring of a person might be seen by some as unethical but that does not mean it is illegal.<quoted text>
Mr or whoever, "I have no empathy for", it seems you don't mind posting anounomously, just say'in.
Alos, Nepotism, is against the law in the public sector. Is that how you got your job?
Referring to your "Is that how you got your job?". I can't speak for the other guy but I sure as hell wouldn't turn down a good position just because I knew the person hiring. Or even if he or she were an in-law (which is not nepotism). Anyone in this economy who would turn down valid, legal employment just because someone else frowned on it, is a fool.
