Faculty and Unclassified Staff Handbook Chapter 1 -- General Policies
Nepotism (formerly Employment of Relatives/Conflict of Interest)
If a person is in a position which requires an evaluation or a personnel decision such as those concerning admission, academic evaluation, appointment, performance evaluations, retention, promotion, discipline, tenure, or salary of a family member or a member of such person's household, such condition shall be deemed a conflict of interest and that person shall not participate in such a decision, and that person shall not participate in any group or body which is considering any such decision. Persons may be appointed to classified or unclassified, including University Support Staff, positions without regard to family relationship to or living arrangements with other members of faculty or staff so long as the personnel processes are conducted and decisions are made in compliance with this provision as well as institutional and Board policies.
