Secondary Employment and Compensation


Full-time Responsibility. Full-time employees are expected to provide full-time service to the College during assigned hours.  Secondary, off-campus employment, which competes with an employee’s full-time duties at the College, is prohibited.

Authority to Control.  The President of the College is authorized to establish procedures necessary to ensure full-time performance of full-time employees. At a minimum, full-time employees must provide a notice of intent to the President for approval prior to beginning secondary, off-campus employment. A form must be submitted for each employment and completed annually. 

The Board of Trustees must approve the College President’s request for outside employment. 


Staff, faculty and administrators of the College are encouraged to provide leadership and professional expertise to various constituencies or organizations whether locally, regionally or nationally who may request their services as a result of their employment at the College provided that the outside activity does not interfere or compete with their full-time duties at the College. Staff, faculty and administrators must receive the approval of his/her immediate supervisor prior to committing to any outside activity which occurs during the normal workday. Staff, faculty and administrators may accept outside compensation for services rendered if he/she is on annual leave, holidays, semester breaks or other such times when classes are not in session or if the services provided take place outside the scheduled or normal workday. Outside compensation does not include nominal honorariums that staff or faculty members receive as a representative of the College for services provided for workshops, seminars, SACS visits or state or regional committee involvement. Exceptions to this section of the policy must be approved by the President.
