Relatives by blood or marriage may not be employed by The University of Montana-Missoula in any positions where one relative would have a supervisory relationship with the other, or be in a position to recommend the hiring of the other.

When a person would be required to make decisions of a supervisory nature concerning a relative, his/her supervisor will assume that responsibility. It is the responsibility of the parties involved to identify when a supervisory relationship exists and to take the necessary steps to correct the situation.

For the purposes of this policy, a supervisor is defined as a person having the authority to oversee and direct work assignments, assign tasks, schedule hours of work, determine rate of pay, evaluate work performance, hire, fire, or discipline employees.

No Applicable Procedure
