Secondary Employment

This policy does not apply to faculty. For information about secondary employment for faculty, see the Faculty Handbook.

Time Limitations. Paid outside employment for full time employees will be limited to the person’s non-scheduled work hours at the College (i.e., evenings, weekends, and vacations or holidays). Work on a second job may not be performed during working hours.

Materials, facilities and ITS Services. Normally in outside employment, no use will be made of Rhodes materials and facilities and ITS services. Exceptions to this policy shall be made only by written authorization from the appropriate Vice President and proper reimbursement to the College. 

Name. The use of the College name in soliciting outside employment is prohibited except in cases approved in writing by the appropriate Vice President.

Competition. Providing services to higher education institutions is prohibited. Exceptions to this policy may be made in regard to teaching if the gain for the College is sufficient. Such exceptions shall be made only upon the written approval of the Provost and the President.

College values and goals. Activities to fulfill outside employment should be consistent with Rhodes values and goals. 

Non-interference. Activities related to outside employment shall not interfere with one’s duties at the College.

Conflict of interest. No full-time employee shall engage in outside employment, whether for extra compensation or not, which would be a conflict of interest with those of the College. Please contact the Finance Office to obtain the required Conflict of Interest Form.

Rhodes reserves the right to require an employee to end a secondary employment job in the event it determines, in its sole discretion, that the job creates a conflict of interest, is contrary to Rhodes’ values and goals, interferes with an employee’s duties at Rhodes, or is otherwise inconsistent with its business needs. Failure to resign a secondary employment job when requested is grounds for discipline, up to and including termination.
