Conflict of Interest. No employee of the University may engage
in any activity which in any way conflicts with his/her duties and
responsibilities at the University of Nebraska. No employee may hire or
supervise a member of his/her immediate family without the expressed
written consent of the Board of Regents.
Outside Employment and Professional Activities. Pursuant to
Section 3.4.5 of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents, full-time,
regular, professional employees may engage in professional activities
outside the University as a means of broadening their experience and
keeping abreast of the latest developments in their specialized fields,
provided these activities do not interfere with their regular duties at
the University or represent a conflict of interest. Employees may not
accept employment outside of the University unless the following
conditions are met:
1. There is no interference with the performance of duties at the University.
2. There is no conflict of interest or appearance of conflict of interest as a result of the outside employment.
3. The employee obtains approval of the outside employment if
required by Section 3.4.5 of the Bylaws of the Board of Regents. The
Bylaws require full-time professional employees to secure approval of
the appropriate administrative officers and the President and, under
certain conditions, the approval of the Board of Regents prior to
engaging in said activities.
Approval of the Board of Regents is required before full-time professional employees may:
(A) Accept retainer fees or other remuneration on a permanent or yearly basis as professional consultants.
(B) Accept professional employment requiring more than an average of
two days per month during the period of their full-time employment.
(C) Charge fees for work performed in University buildings with University equipment and materials.
(D) Provide professional services for remuneration to departments or agencies of state government.
An application form for permission to engage in outside employment
should be completed prior to accepting any such activity. These forms
are available from the campus Human Resource Office.
