Conflicts of Interest

Date Updated: April 29th, 2012

It is the policy of Scripps College that employees of the College refrain from any activity or association that is detrimental to, or in conflict with, the interests of the employing institution. This policy prohibits employees from using the following for personal gain: working hours; sick leave; College materials, equipment or facilities; and information concerning College business that the employee has acquired as a result of his or her position. An employee who knowingly engages in any of the above listed or similar activities may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.

This policy is not intended to prohibit outside employment as long as the employment is not detrimental to, or does not create a conflict of interest with the College. When considering outside employment or business arrangements, you must discuss the matter with your supervisor or the Director of Human Resources and complete the appropriate paperwork if requested. The Director of Human Resources will determine if such activity is detrimental or if actual or potential conflict of interest exists.
