3.04 Employment of Relatives

Last Revised: 24 Oct 1997
Refer Questions To: Director, Human Resources


This policy applies to all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.


Gallaudet University often benefits from employee referrals of relatives for employment at the University. Relatives and household members may work at the University provided they meet employment standards and as long as they do not directly participate in or approve institutional decisions involving a direct benefit (initial appointment, retention, transfer, promotion, salary review, leave of absence, performance evaluation, supervision, work assignments, etc.) to members of their family. Additionally, relatives may not work in positions where the logical progression of assignments could enable the employee(s) to benefit from the resources of the University. Departments are expected to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.

For the purpose of this policy, relatives are defined as husband, wife, registered domestic partner, son, daughter, father, mother, brother, sister, grandparent, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, father-in-law, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister. Household member refers to anyone who regularly shares a residence with an employee.
