CONFLICT OF INTEREST
CONFLICT OF INTEREST
At the time of new employee orientation, each full-time professional employee of the College must complete the Report of Outside Income Producing Activities form and submit it to the Vice President of Human Resources. The Vice President of Human Resources will review the form for approval. In the event the Vice President for Human Resources determines that the employee’s outside income-producing activities create a conflict of interest, the employee shall take immediate corrective action or may appeal the decision through the grievance process.
Should an employee acquire outside employment after their initial hire date, the employee must notify the office of Human Resources to request approval of the outside employment.
Any full-time professional employee found to be in violation of this policy must take immediate corrective action or risk termination of employment.
TEACHING BY NON-FACULTY EMPLOYEES
Non-teaching/faculty employees at the College are encouraged to teach a course provided they have the appropriate credentials and/or degree required to teach the course. No non-teaching/faculty employee at the College may teach a course during the normal workday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. unless the conditions outlined below are met:
- The non-teaching/faculty employee must have the credentials and/or degree required to teach the course.
- A non-teaching/faculty employee who agrees to teach a course during the academic year will teach the course as part of their regular salary.
- Approval by the immediate supervisor is required.
Non-teaching/faculty employees teaching an internet course must also have the appropriate credentials and/or degree. Non- teaching/faculty employees must ensure that any feedback provided to on-line students occurs outside of the normal workday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Under no circumstances will feedback be provided to on-line students during the normal workday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Qualified, non-teaching/faculty employees who agree to teach a course outside their normal workday/workweek, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, will be compensated at the standard adjunct faculty rate. No work related to the course being taught will be allowed to occur during the work day.
Any non-faculty employee wishing to teach an adjunct class should fill out the Application for Adjunct Teaching Assignment form. The form is located on the intranet under Personnel Forms. The form must be completed and have all signatures before the employee is considered approved to teach the class. A new form should be filled out for each semester the employee wished to have an adjunct teaching assignment.
