Nepotism

The college shall not permit a full-time employee to work in a direct supervisory-subordinate relationship with a relative or member of the same household or economic unit. For additional information on this subject, refer to Board Policy 6.20 - Nepotism. This rule pertains to full-time employees only. Part-time employees and adjunct instructors may be employed with the approval of an appropriate supervisor above the level where the direct or indirect supervision exists. In each case where a relative is approved for part-time employment, the approving supervisor will perform all evaluations.

For this purpose, family member or relative is defined as spouse, parents or stepparents, children or stepchildren, brother, sister, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother or half sister or their husbands or wives. Persons living together shall be considered to be in the same household or economic unit.
