An employee's first responsibility is to the University and to efficiently perform assigned duties. However, the University does not object to an employee accepting outside work, as long as it does not:

  • interfere with scheduled work hours
  • affect the satisfactory performance of regular duties
  • cause an accident or create a hazardous situation
  • cause the employee to engage their talent with a competitor in a way that would disadvantage the University (not meant to pertain to teaching at another educational institution)

Any questions about what would be considered a disadvantage to the University should be discussed with your supervisor.

Violations of this policy may result in disciplinary action as set forth in the Disciplinary Action policy.
