Employment of Relatives

Employment opportunities at the University are not based upon or influenced by familial relationships. The University does 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 has a personal relationship, such as sibling, uncle, aunt, spouse, domestic partner, child, niece, nephew, grandparent or the like (see the policy for a complete definition). Exceptions to this policy may be permitted where there is a benefit to the University or when doing so will promote a mission of the University. All exceptions must be requested in writing prior to the individual's employ and be approved by the vice president for ethics and compliance. For further details regarding employment of relatives, refer to the University policy on Nepotism (III.B.3) www.purdue.edu/policies/ethics/iiib3.html
