Promotion stopped at Capt.?
Have a question for the masses! The municipality I work for is revising thier nepotism policy. This will effect approximately 1/3 of our department in the future. The new policy will restrict promotions to maximum of Captain if you have a relative on the dept. This includes: brother in law, father in law, stepkids, etc. Now we have all heard of cases where family members were given preferential treatment on promotions. This is not the case with my department as promotions are based on test scores only. I see no problem with the way things are now....keep the family members on different shifts!! Does anyone out there have a similar policy or have experience with one? I'm trying to collect case study data. Thanks bro's!
