University of Minnesota Board of Regents Nepotism and Personal Relationships Policy

Managing Nepotism and Personal Relationships

Reason for Policy

To clarify the process that should be followed when a nepotism situation arises.


When a Department/Program learns of a possible personal relationship involving one or more employees in the unit, the Department/Program must contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action at 612.624.9547.  EOAA will provide guidance on the proper steps that need to be taken and assist the Department/Program in developing an agreement between all parties to anticipate any conflicts of interest that may arise.
