Rules issued to curb nepotism among China’s civil servants
BEIJING, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) — China has issued regulations to limit public servants’ association with their spouses and relatives at work, a move hoped to curb corruption and interferences with their duties.
Civil servants and their spouses, relatives within three generations or relatives-in-law can not hold two posts which report to the same director, nor should they have the director-subordinate work relationship, according to the regulations.
In terms of geographical limitations, the regulations say that civil servants may not serve as heads of prefecture-level Communist Party of China (CPC) committees or governments in their hometowns.
Civil servants are also not allowed to assume top posts in prefecture-level discipline inspection commissions, procuratorates, courts or police departments in their hometowns, according to the regulations.
Civil servants are also asked to avoid situations such as recruitment, promotion or demotion of staff, taxation and approval for going abroad, that involve their relatives.
Those who do not abide by the regulations could be removed from office, according to the regulations jointly issued by the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee and the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.
If two civil servants marry or form a new relationship that “should be avoided,” their posts will be adjusted, according to the regulations.

Something For the World To Study – especially those nepotist, term limitless, 3rd world minded political parties.
Mubarak in Egypt (fallen)
Gaddafi in Libya (fallen unless the Tureg somehow gain autonomy and sovereignty)
Aquino in Phillipines (ongoing – quite parallel to various family blocs in Malaysia . . . )
Malaysia (ongoing series of oligarchies in BOTH mainstream and opposition coalitions, 3rd force has a lot of work to do . . . )
India (Gandhi, Nehru etc..)
Ali Abdullah Salleh – Tunisia
. . . and many more but with this surprising one as well featured as the best . . .
The Bushes in USA
The Kennedys in USA . . .
Perhaps at a lower level as in the below Oklahoma school system nepotism prevention chart USA is still ‘exceptional’ but it is the top echelons that need to set an example and the erosion is immense if the top echelons lack discipline to set an example . . .
There is nothing to prevent these people from taking UNPAID advisory roles, but they insist on hogging political power and creating cults of personality . . . this is the difference between 3rd world, sliding into 3rd world and rising out of 3rd world. China here has set an example and standard that few nations can claim to match . . .
Nepotism is a form of favoritism that is based on kinship. Nepotism is usually seen to be a negative practice because it implies that the person getting the job, promotion, college admittance, or property is usually not otherwise qualified enough to have it. There are no uniform laws regarding nepotism, but there are many different ways to approach a legal case where nepotism is suspected.
Nepotism can take place in politics where a person with a political position either passes on their position or gets employment for a member of their family. Laws regarding political nepotism vary from state to state. Another type of nepotism that occurs is within the educational system, when a family member is admitted on the basis of their family’s history at the school applied to.
Sometimes a business may be suspected of nepotism when certain family members of higher-ups are promoted, hired, or given raises while other employees remain in their own positions. If an employee is fired and a family member of business leaders takes the position, it may be considered nepotism. There are no uniform national business laws regarding nepotism and the practice may be openly embraced by some businesses.
Other businesses may have serious rules banning nepotism, which may include not having spouses or family members working in the same department or company. This type of nepotism may be extremely taxing for people who meet at work and go on to get married.
Anti-nepotism can work against well-qualified individuals as well. This is especially true in the anti-nepotism that occurs when two people working together get married and one or both of them are fired. The business may also choose to not hire someone who is very qualified for a position because that person is related to someone in the company.
Nepotism is a problematic legal issue to deal with because of its varying complexities. While most states have comprehensive anti-discrimination laws, nepotism may not be covered as a form of discrimination. There are several ways nepotism can be combated legally, however.
Discrimination based on marital status, sex, or age is illegal and can sometimes be argued against in cases of suspected nepotism. In addition, racial discrimination, a serious charge, can also sometimes be practiced under the guise of nepotism. Many states also have laws and legal rights that argue that nepotism against married couples is a form of illegal discrimination.
If you or someone you know has been affected by nepotism, whether in the workplace, school, or in government, you may be entitled to monetary compensation or your job back. If a lawyer agrees to take such cases it will be on a contingency basis, meaning you only pay them if you win your nepotism case.
