Employees are permitted to engage in outside work or to hold other jobs, subject to certain restrictions as outlined below.
Activities and conduct away from the job must not compete with, conflict with, or compromise the College’s interests or adversely affect job performance and the ability to fulfill all job responsibilities. Employees are prohibited from performing any services for customers on nonworking time that are normally performed by the College. This prohibition also extends to the unauthorized use of any College tools or equipment and the unauthorized use or application of any confidential information. In addition, employees are not to solicit or conduct any outside business during paid working time.
Employees are cautioned to carefully consider the demands that additional work activity will create before accepting outside employment. Outside employment will not be considered an excuse for poor job performance, absenteeism, tardiness, leaving early, refusal to travel, or refusal to work overtime or different hours. If the College determines that an employee’s outside work interferes with performance, the employee may be asked to terminate the outside employment.
Employees who have accepted outside employment may not use paid sick leave to work on the outside job. Fraudulent use of sick leave will result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.
