Arizona State University
Senate Motion #2015-45
Motion Introduced by: University Academic Council
Date of First Reading: January 26, 2015
Date of Second Reading: February 23, 2015
Title of Motion: ACD 515 Policy Revisions
Action Requested: The University Academic Council recommends that the Senate support the changes to ACD 515, policy on nepotism.
Rationale: This change to ACD 515 is needed so that it supports approved edits made in the ACD 402 policy on romantic or sexual relationships. Inserting this language will provide clarity and recourse for those individuals that are in a romantic or sexual relationship that predates the revisions made to ACD 402.
Second Policy Paragraph from ACD 515 (New verbiage in bold):
However, no employee of the university may hire, appoint, review, supervise, direct, promote, or participate in decisions involving hire, renewal, retention, supervision, promotion, evaluation, instruction, or compensation of a relative, or a member of the employee’s established household, or a person with whom the employee is in a romantic or sexual relationship (referred to collectively as “relative”).
