This section contains information on collective bargaining agreements, and grievance procedures. There are three unions covering some groups of UWF employees:
The employment of relatives is allowed where there is no conflict of interest, no direct supervisory responsibility between relatives. Employment of related persons, as defined below, in a single organizational unit or in a work-related organizational unit is permitted, provided that such employment shall not involve a conflict of interest, including but not limited to participation by the relative in making recommendations or decisions specifically affecting the appointment, retention, tenure, work assignments, evaluation, promotion, demotion or salary of the related person. Prior to the employment of relatives or a change in reporting structure of an existing employee which would result in a conflict of interest, the Provost/Vice President responsible for the organizational unit shall determine and document, in writing, a conflict management plan that eliminates the conflict and implement the plan. Relative includes the following family members: father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandchild, or grandparent.
In general, employees of the University of West Florida are permitted to engage in outside activities. The University of West Florida Conflict of Interest Policy, AC-11.00-11/09 (“the Policy” https://nautical.uwf.edu/unitapp/publication/Pub.cfm?PubFormatID=1081), provides guidance to employees seeking to engage in outside activities. In accordance with the Policy, employees are required to report their outside activities to the University and obtain approval to participate in these activities prior to engaging in them.1 Outside activities are those activities, whether compensated or not, which are not part of the employee’s assigned duties and for which the University has provided no compensation.
