8.7 Scope of Policy

These provisions apply to related individuals whose relationship is current or former when these rules are adopted or at the time they seek employment by the university, or arises after the date of their employment by the university.

This policy applies to both full-time and part-time, regular and temporary faculty and staff, and to students and persons with fellowships which involve employment at the university. It does not apply, however, in cases where the individual over whom the other individual has responsibilities to make decisions or recommendations related to employment is compensated in the amount of $1,800 or less in any fiscal year.

(Note: This policy applies only to employment relationships. Romantic and/or sexual relationships between faculty and students in the instructional context are governed by II-5 Policy on Consensual Relationships Involving Students.)
