FAIRMONT STATE COLLEGE POLICIES & PROCEDURES















NO. 46





COLLEGE EMPLOYMENT AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS





Effective October 1998











Fairmont State College encourages applications/résumés/vitae from spouses, partners, and other family members of current employees. Such candidates will receive full consideration for available positions for which they apply and are qualified. Consistent with the College's diversity goals and affirmative action policies, applications are especially welcome from members of underrepresented groups.



In an effort to support the relocation of a family, college personnel will, as appropriate, assist with referrals to outside agencies for employment for spouses and other family members who accompany newly-appointed faculty or staff to Fairmont State College.



While there is no stated or implied rule against the consideration of more than one member of the same family for employment within the same unit of the college, FSC faculty, administrators and other staff cannot supervise, initiate, or participate in institutional decisions involving a direct benefit (initial appointment, retention, promotion, salary, leave of absence, etc.) to members of their immediate families.
