Pursuant to N.J.S.A.52:13D-21.2(c), no State officer or employee may supervise or exercise authority over the personnel actions of a relative of the State officer or employee. The New Jersey State Ethics Commission has determined that nepotism prohibitions also apply to non-related cohabitants and to supervisors and subordinates who are not cohabitating but are involved in dating relationships. All Supervisors must fill out the Supervisory Conflict of Interest Form.
