Employment of More Than One Member of a Household
  1. In appointing academic staff members, the Department seeks those persons most qualified to fulfill its teaching, research and service obligations. Accordingly, members of the same family may be appointed to academic staff positions when it has been determined that they are the most qualified candidates for the positions.

  2. No academic staff member, without prior permission of the immediate supervisor, shall participate in employment decisions, supervision or grievance adjustment concerning or involving the staff member's spouse, child or stepchild.
