Employment of Family Members
It is the policy of the University to prevent conflicts of interest and appearances of favoritism that result from the appointment, reappointment, and/or supervision of an employee by a close relative.
Supervision means the exercise of authority or responsibility with regard to appointment, reappointment, promotion, managing performance, work assignments, salary administration, termination or other terms and conditions of employment.
A close relative is an employee's spouse, child (including stepchild), son-in-law and daughter-in-law, parents (including stepparents), father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother, sister (including stepbrother and stepsister), brother-in-law and sister-in-law, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, grandparent, or grandchild.
Employees are required to fully disclose the existence of any relationship that may create a conflict of interest at the time of employment, or that develops at any time during employment.
