6.01.002 - Nepotism
To avoid impropriety or the appearance thereof in its hiring practices, it is the policy of the Community College of Beaver County that the College is prohibited from employing in any capacity, either full time or part time, relatives of the College’s Board of Trustees or of the President of the College. For the purposes of this policy, a relative is defined as husband or wife, son or daughter, mother or father, and/or brother or sister of the Board member, or President or the spouses thereof. The policy will apply equally to those who have established a cohabitation relationship.
In addition, the College is prohibited from hiring full-time the relative of any full time employee of the College. Relatives of employees of the College may be hired for part-time service so long as they are not hired in an area that will place them in line to either directly or indirectly report to a relative. In such cases, the individual hired part-time will be required to apply and be selected through the normal recruitment and selection processes of the College. No preferential treatment in hiring is to be given to relatives of employees of the College.
The Board directs the President to develop procedures for the implementation of this policy.
