Employ family members for the right reasons

In the current climate with pressure on jobs and the need to cut costs, employing family members who cannot otherwise get work may be seen as an easy option, but employing them is fraught with danger.  How much do you pay them – too much and they may be seen by other employees as getting preferential treatment due to who they are and too little and they may not perform to the necessary level.  There is no easy option other than to ensure that everyone is employed on merit and not just because of who they are.  Keep the roles clearly defined and objective and it will make life easier in the long run.
