The College does not prohibit staff from seeking outside employment. However, such employment should not interfere with the staff member’s work performance, including the staff member’s availability for overtime work. The following rules for outside employment apply to all employees notifying their supervisors of their intent to engage in outside employment:

  1. Work-related activities and conduct away from the College must not compete with, conflict with or compromise the College’s interests or adversely affect job performance and the ability to fulfill all responsibilities. Employees may not solicit or conduct any outside business during work time.
  2. Employees must carefully consider the demands that additional work activity will create before accepting outside employment. Outside employment will not be considered an excuse for poor job performance, absenteeism, tardiness, leaving early, refusal to work overtime or different hours. If outside work activity causes or contributes to job-related problems, the employee will be asked to discontinue the outside employment, and the employee may be subject to the normal disciplinary procedures for dealing with the resulting job-related problem(s).

The College requires that the employee not reveal confidential information pertaining to the College, students, staff, or alumni and that the position at the College not be used to obtain work or business for the employee.
