610.1 General

This policy applies to staff employees performing consulting work either during or outside normal working hours. Consulting work normally falls under one of the following categories, depending on the party who initiates or sponsors the activity.

610.2 Types of Consulting Activities

610.2.1. Sponsored Seminars During Normal Work Hours

The staff members who participate are considered to be performing a part of their regular duties and no additional pay or time off will be given. Travel reimbursement is appropriate if the activity is held off-campus.

610.2.2. Sponsored Activities that require Work Beyond Normal Working Hours

  1. Individuals who are required to work overtime as part of their regular job will be entitled to compensation as defined elsewhere in this handbook.
     
  2. Individuals who are asked to participate in seminars, teach credit, or non-credit courses or other activities within their areas of expertise but defined as part of their regular job will be paid in a manner mutually agreeable between the University and the individual employee.

610.2.3. Individual Consulting During Off-Duty Hours

Consulting is not monitored except in cases in which a violation of the general statement of policy arises (i.e., brings discredit to the University or interferes with normal job performance). University resources must not be utilized for such consulting activities for which the employee is compensated by the contractor of the services.

610.2.4. Individual Consulting During Normal Working Hours on a Project Arranged by the Individual

Time away from the job must be scheduled and approved in advance by the supervisor and the absence must be charged to annual leave or leave without pay. University resources must not be utilized for such consulting activities for which the employee is compensated by the contractor of the services.

610.2.5. Supplemental Part-Time Employment not Associated with Regular Work

Participation will be on a voluntary basis with additional compensation being negotiated between the participant and the employing department. Time away from the job must be scheduled and approved in advance by the supervisor and the absence must be charged to annual leave or leave without pay.
