The basic criteria for the appointment and promotion of classified employees shall be appropriate qualifications and performance as set forth in the policies of the Board of Regents. Relationship by a family or marriage shall constitute neither an advantage nor a disadvantage. No person shall be employed in a position which will result in the existence of a subordinate-superior relationship between such individual and any relative of such individual through any line of authority. For purposes of this policy, “line of authority” refers to authority extending vertically through one or more organizational levels of supervision or management. For the purpose of this policy, relatives are defined as husbands and wives, parents and children, brothers, sisters, and in-laws of any of the foregoing.
