Nepotism Policy

Policy Statement: In accordance with Oregon law, Lewis & Clark does not refuse to hire nor does it terminate employment of any individual solely because another member of that individual’s family presently works at the College.

However, employment cannot be offered or continued where an individual would be placed in a position of exercising supervisory, appointment, or grievance-adjustment authority over a member of his or her family.

The Office of Human Resources makes decisions on a case-by-case basis concerning employees who would indirectly supervise a relative or would supervise, directly or indirectly, another person who lives in the same household but is not a relative as defined above.
