GOSHEN — The Elkhart County Council is now in compliance with Indiana’s anti-nepotism law.
The council revised policy Saturday that says government employees cannot directly supervise relatives including spouses, parents, children, siblings, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, daughters- and sons-in law, step relatives and adopted family members.
Another part of the policy addresses contractual relationships between the county council and relatives. Council members cannot enter into a business contract with people related to themselves or members of the Elkhart County Commissioners without disclosure.
The county commissioners adopted the same policy earlier this month.
