Secondary Employment

The employment responsibilities to the State are primary for any employee working full-time; any other employment with a non-State government employer in which that person chooses to engage is secondary. The policy requires an employee to have approval from the agency head before engaging in any secondary employment. The purpose of this approval procedure is to determine that the secondary employment does not have an adverse effect on the primary employment and does not create a conflict of interest. These provisions for secondary employment apply to all employment not covered by the policy on Dual Employment.
