What is marital status discrimination?
A reader asks whether rules against nepotism violate the law.
My husband and I work at the same company. A supervisory position in his department just opened up, and I want to apply for it. But my manager told me the company has an anti-nepotism policy that prohibits spouses from working together or supervising each other. Can they adopt a policy like this? I thought discrimination based on marital status was illegal.
