Employee Conduct - Secondary Employment

To state the College's policy on other business interests and additional employment of full-time employees and to implement 23 NCAC 02C0210

Policy Statement

It is the policy of Randolph Community College that primary employment responsibilities for permanent full-time employees are to the College. Any other employment in which an employee engages, including any part-time or adjunct college contract not included in a full-time employee’s job responsibilities, is considered secondary.

Secondary employment shall not be permitted when it would (1) create either directly or indirectly a conflict of interest with the primary employment or (2) impair in any way the employee’s ability to perform all expected duties during the employee’s normally assigned working hours, to make decisions and carry out in an objective fashion the responsibilities of the employee’s position at the College.

Therefore, the Randolph Community College Board of Trustees shall approve or disapprove any secondary employment of the President. Further, the President, or the President’s designee, shall approve or disapprove any secondary employment of any permanent full-time employee prior to that employee engaging in the secondary employment.


As a means of documenting that secondary employment does not have an adverse effect on the primary employment and does not create a conflict of interest, employees must seek approval for secondary employment prior to engaging in secondary employment.  Approval of secondary employment may be withdrawn at any time if it is determined that secondary employment has an adverse impact on primary employment.

  1. The employee shall complete and submit a Request for Secondary Employment form to their immediate supervisor for all secondary employment, which must also be approved by the President.
  2. If secondary employment is for a teaching position it shall be updated each semester.
