The College of New Jersey restricts the hiring and supervision of one family member by another, including those cases where one employee may be in the line of supervision of a relative* at a divisional or executive level. This restriction also applies to supervisors and subordinates who are cohabitating or dating. It is the responsibility of both supervisors and applicants to report the names of any relatives in departments or divisions to which the candidate has applied.
The College reserves the right to reassign relatives working in the same department whenever there is the potential for a conflict of interest.
* For purposes of this policy, “relative” means: an individual’s spouse or the individual’s or spouse’s parent, child, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, grandparent, grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother or half sister, whether the relative is related to the individual or the individual’s spouse by blood, marriage or adoption.
