CSP neither encourages nor discourages employment of relatives, however, the basic criteria for appointment and promotion of all employees shall be appropriate qualifications and performance.  For the purposes of this policy, “relatives” are defined as spouses, children, siblings, parents, or grandparents. A “domestic partnership” is generally defined as a committed relationship between two individuals who are sharing a home or living arrangements.

Without the prior approval of the Director of Human Resources, no person shall be assigned to, or work in, a department or unit under the supervision of a relative who has or may have a direct effect on the person’s promotion or performance. The University reserves the right to terminate or transfer employees if a personal relationship in the workplace is proven to have a negative impact on the operation of the business.
