Employment of Relatives

Employment opportunities at the University will not be based upon or influenced by familial relationships. The University will not normally permit any person to be employed in any regular, temporary or student position that places the person under the administrative supervision of another employee to whom the person is related as father, mother, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, husband, wife, son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandparents or by marriage. Exceptions to this policy may be permitted where there are unique circumstances or when doing so will promote a mission of the University. All exceptions must be requested in writing by the employee’s supervisor and submitted to the immediate supervisor for review and recommendation, through each higher supervisory level, to the University president. For further details regarding employment of relatives, refer to Executive Memorandum No. C-37, University Policy Concerning Nepotism, www.purdue.edu/policies/pages/human_resources/c_37.html.
