Family Relationships

It is against NYIT policy for members of the same family to work in the same department. In addition, one family member may not have any direct or indirect supervision over the progress, performance, pay, or welfare of another, regardless of their areas of employment, and they may not be involved together with matters of financial controls or physical inventory of NYIT property. For this policy, NYIT defines family as any of the following relationships: spouse, domestic partner, parent, grandparent, child, stepchild, ward, grandchild, in-law, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, or cousin.

If the family relationship of two employees who fall under one of the above-listed conditions changes, the employee with the shorter length of service will be required to transfer, resign, or be terminated within 30 days unless the other employee does the same voluntarily. The president may, in rare instances, issue a temporary (no longer than one year) waiver of this policy if one of these employees is uniquely qualified and essential to the position he or she holds at the time of the change in family relationship. If you have any question about whether or not your family member is eligible under this policy to apply for a specific open position, please contact the Office of Human Resources.
