DATE OF ADOPTION: August 22, 2002

The primary obligation of professional and non-professional employees is owed to Seminole State College and to the clients that it serves. Any outside employment must be reported to the President, on an annual basis, who will decide whether such employment does impair college job performance or impair the professional status of the employee. Employees will not engage in gainful employment outside of their appointments, where the employment affects adversely their professional status or impairs their standing with students, associates, and/or the community. Unreported outside employment may result in disciplinary action, including suspension or termination. An employee who continues in an outside job to which the President has objected will be in violation of Board policy and subject to disciplinary action, including suspension or termination.
Tutoring of any kind for pay is not allowed on college property or on school time unless approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Employees should also be aware that certain types of outside employment may cause a conflict of interest with SSC and may be in violation of the College Ethics Policy. When in doubt as to whether certain outside employment is improper, the employee should consult with the President.
