4.11         Employment and Supervision of Immediate Family Members  

No employee of a Regent institution or the Board Office may participate in the decision to hire, retain, promote, grant tenure to or determine the salary of an immediate family member.  

For purposes of this policy, an “immediate family member” has one of the following relationships:  

1.      By blood or adoption: parent, child, sibling, first cousin, uncle, aunt, nephew, or niece;  

2.      By marriage; current or former spouse, brother or sister-in-law; father or mother-in-law, son or daughter-in-law, step-parent, or step-child  

3.      “Domestic partners” as defined by institutional policy.  A “Domestic Partner” shall be treated as a spouse for purposes of this policy.  

Each institution shall implement this policy with appropriate disclosure requirements and management plans for situations in which an immediate family member would be in a supervisory role or otherwise expected to participate in major employment decisions.  

Where the management plan involves an institutional head or a position, described in Section 4.05(B), the plan must be approved by the Board or its designee.
