Employment of Relatives

For the purpose of this policy, “relative” means legally married partner, domestic partner, mother, father, sister, brother, in-law, son, daughter, aunt, uncle, and step-relatives.

The College may hire relatives of current or past employees, but it recognizes the sensitive nature of having family members employed by the same organization and will avoid difficult situations. Relatives may be hired as long as the new employee is not in a supervisor-subordinate relationship. Preference (inconsistent with equal opportunity employment policies) will not be given to relatives or friends of current employees.
