2.50.02 Family Employment  

New appointments to the University and assignments within the University shall be made with full effort to obtain the best qualified person for each position and, therefore, only after a thorough canvass of available personnel. Blood or marital relationship to other employees of the University shall not be regarded as a deterrent to appointment, reassignment, or continuance in present position, except that close relatives may not be employed where one is in a position of influence relative to the other.  

This policy applies to all employees of the University but will not be interpreted to abrogate contracts already made, either term or continuing.
