Responsible Office: Office of the President / Department of Human Resources

Reference: Chapter III, Section IX – Board of Supervisors (Rules) – University of Louisiana

Under certain situations, the Board of Supervisors authorizes the employment of persons
from the same economic unit or the same immediate family, although a separate economic
unit, when their individual qualifications are such that they represent the best possible
choice for a given position, and the position was appropriately advertised. However,
such employees may not be employed in a situation where one member may have direct
administrative responsibility for the other. However, no interpretation of this section
shall conflict with the Governmental Code of Ethics or R.S. 42:1119 or 42:1102 and
any other related statute.
