An Officer or Employee is the starting point from which all degrees of relationship are calculated.

Under the Degrees of Consanguinity, where Spouse is indicated, the relationship of the spouse is in the same degree as that of the person related by consanguinity, but the spouse is related only by affinity.

Please refer to UPPS 04.04.07, “Nepotism and Related Employment” for more information.
