Someone hired on the basis of nepotism: when relatives or spouces of company employees are preferred for new hires. Companies assume that the relative of a stable, responsible employee will have a similar work ethic, so rather than take a risk on time-consuming resume reading and interviewing with outside hires, they will simply nepo hire. An HR cop-out.
Did you meet the new guy? He's John's step-brother.

Yeah, I heard they didn't even call his references or require a drug-screen test. He's a total nepo hire.
