The Administrative Policies
TAP NO. 21: EMPLOYMENT OF RELATIVES OF UNIVERSITY EMPLOYEES
In order to avoid the stigma of favoritism or the appearance of impropriety in employment decision-making, relatives of employees by blood or marriage will be considered for University employment on the same basis as other non-related applicants except they will not be employed in a department where the applicant’s relative exercises direct supervisory, managerial, or administrative responsibility.
This will apply to full-time, part-time, temporary, or summer positions throughout the University. For summer or part-time positions only, relatives may be employed when a position has been posted and has not been filled by a qualified student or a person with superior credentials, and this fact has been confirmed by the Student Employment Manager as to students or the appropriate Dean or Department Head as to others.
Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the appropriate Vice President or President.
