The University is considered the primary employer for employees who are subject to the State Human Resources Act (SHRA). Before employees engage in secondary employment (any work that produces income and is performed for an entity outside of the university), he/she must obtain approval from the unit manager and department head using the Secondary Employment Approval form. Approval is valid for one year and renewal is required. The Approval form must be retained in the employee’s departmental file.
The supervisor must consider whether the secondary work will adversely affect performance or create a conflict of interest. A conflict of interest is defined as when an employee is or may be in a position to influence activities or University decisions in ways that would lead to personal gain for the employee or his/her immediate family, or give an improper advantage to third parties in their dealings with the University. If guidance is needed, supervisors should contact Human Resources.
