Employment of Relatives

Approved by the Board of Trustees of Rockland Community College on October 21, 1993. Amended on September 20, 2007.

Employment of Relatives

Subject to, and in addition to, verification of compliance with CONFLICTS OF INTEREST, Rockland Community College (the "College") permits the employment of qualified relatives of employees.

For purposes of this policy, "relative" is defined as a spouse, domestic partner registered pursuant to County of Rockland Local Law No. 9 of 2006, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, first cousin, or corresponding in-law, parent of domestic partner registered pursuant to County of Rockland Local Law No. 9 of 2006, or "Step" relation. The College will exercise sound business judgment in the placement of related employees in accordance with the following guidelines:

Relatives are permitted to work for the College, provided no direct reporting or supervisory/management relationship exists. That is, no supervisor will be directly responsible for authorizing payment or verifying time sheets and attendance records of any relative.

This section applies to employees that marry, become corresponding in-laws, become "step" relations, become domestic partners registered pursuant to County of Rockland Local Law No. 9 of 2006, or become corresponding parents of domestic partners registered pursuant to County of Rockland Local Law No. 9 of 2006, while both are employed by the College.

Relatives of employed members of the College may only be hired when they are selected through established selection process. Selection processes include:

  1. C.S.E.A. Exam and listings
  2. Faculty and administrative search committees
  3. Adjunct faculty selection procedure
  4. Part-time or temporary selection procedure
  5. Student worker selection procedure
