Outside Employment

From the State Personnel System Employee Handbook (PDF):

I.D.4: Outside Employment

It is expected that your state job will be your principal employment. Outside employment, either with another state department or an employer other than the state, or other activity (business transactions or ownership, volunteer positions, etc.) that is or could be perceived as incompatible with the duties and responsibilities of your state position is prohibited. You must get advance written approval from your appointing authority before engaging in outside employment. Failure to obtain approval before beginning outside employment may result in corrective or disciplinary action.

Clery Act

Summary, from the Clery Center for Security on Campus:

“Originally known as the Campus Security Act, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) is the landmark federal law that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. The law is tied to an institution’s participation in federal student financial aid programs and it applies to most institutions of higher education both public and private. The Clery Act is enforced by the United States Department of Education.

The law was amended in 1992 to add a requirement that schools afford the victims of campus sexual assault certain basic rights, and was amended again in 1998 to expand the reporting requirements. The 1998 amendments also formally named the law in memory of Jeanne Clery.  Subsequent amendments in 2000 and 2008 added provisions dealing with registered sex offender notification and campus emergency response. The 2008 amendments also added a provision to protect crime victims, ‘whistleblowers’, and others from retaliation.”
