Family Relationships

NYIT discourages having family members work in the same department. In addition, NYIT prohibits one family member from having 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: child, spouse, domestic partner, parent, sibling (including half siblings, step siblings, or siblings related through adoption), grandchild, grandparent, ward, in-law, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, cousin, the child of an employee's spouse or domestic partner, or any other individual related to the employee by blood or whose close relationship with the employee is the equivalent of a family relationship.

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. 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.
