|This policy applies to:
Loyola University New Orleans recognizes that many of its employees serving in non-faculty positions have specialized skills or areas of expertise and that the utilization of these skills in “outside activities” can be beneficial to both the individual and to the University.
Such activities may include, but are not limited to: teaching, training and consulting, personal and/or professional involvement in the community, in professional organizations and in national, state or local politics; and any employment or employment-related activities undertaken to supplement current income. Loyola respects the rights of an employee to engage in activities of his or her choice, both within and outside the University, as long as those activities do not adversely affect Loyola and do not prevent the employee from fulfilling the requirements of his/her position.
An employee’s primary work commitment is to his/her full-time position at Loyola. Outside activities that are unrelated to an employee’s full-time position should not be undertaken if they would interfere with that commitment.
A staff employee at Loyola must not perform non-Loyola work or generate income not derived from his/her position during the normal working hours that he/she is compensated by Loyola for that position. Staff employees may not teach classes for additional pay during normal working hours or receive stipends or grant income for work performed during the normal working hours for which he/she is already compensated by Loyola.
In all non-employment activities outside of Loyola University New Orleans, the employee functions without the sponsorship of the University, and the University assumes no responsibility for the activity.
