Employment of Relatives

Human Resources policies and procedures establish a framework and set standards that guide how we should conduct ourselves as employees and members of the Villanova University community. This includes how we perform our jobs, make decisions, interact with one another and manage the business operations of the University. 

All employees share responsibility for protecting the well-being of the community and for adhering to standards of behavior that make this a great place to work.

Employment of Relatives

Close relatives of employees may be hired by the University, but not in a position which involves a direct supervisory relationship with a Relative. Furthermore, no employee may work in a position in which he or she has the authority to influence, directly or indirectly, any term or condition of employment of the Relative. Relatives are considered a spouse, ex-spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, step-relatives and in-laws. This policy applies to all full-time, part-time, temporary and student worker positions.
