Kirtland Community College (Kirtland) believes that an environment where employees maintain clear boundaries between employee personal and business interactions is most effective for conducting business. Individuals in supervisory relationships or other influential roles are subject to more stringent requirements under this policy due to their status as role models, their access to sensitive information, and their ability to influence employment decisions.
No employees of the institution who are immediate family members or involved in a close personal relationship shall be placed within the same direct line of supervision whereby a Kirtland Employee is responsible for supervising the job performance or work activities of another immediate family member or someone with whom they are in a close personal relationship; provided, however, that to the extent possible, this policy shall not be construed to prohibit two or more such persons from working for the institution.
In searching for qualified candidates for a new or vacated position, persons responsible for recruitment shall evaluate each individual on his/her merits without consideration of their relationship to another employee. Prior to hiring any individual, the department wishing to hire the individual must conduct an analysis to assure compliance with policy.
