(a) Employment of Spouse. An employment decision shall not be based on whether an individual has a spouse presently employed by the employer except in accordance with the following criteria:
(1) For business reasons of supervision, safety, security or morale, an employer may refuse to place one spouse under the direct supervision of the other spouse.
(2) For business reasons of supervision, security or morale, an employer may refuse to place both spouses in the same department, division or facility if the work involves potential conflicts of interest or other hazards greater for married couples than for other persons.
(b) Accommodation for Co-Employees Who Marry. If co-employees marry, an employer shall make reasonable efforts to assign job duties so as to minimize problems of supervision, safety, security, or morale.
