An employee engaged in supplemental employment within the college who is underperforming in their primary position at the college may be subject to sanctions, including not being allowed to continue with the supplemental employment if problems persist.

The college may allow full-time faculty and staff who have the required academic qualifications and have not had performance issues in the past two (2) years, to teach up to two (2) courses per semester, not to exceed eight (8) hours, which are beyond normal work load and responsibilities.
