In the appointment of its faculty and staff members, the Seattle College District seeks those persons qualified to fulfill the institution's teaching and service obligations. Accordingly, members of the same family, as defined by Chapter 132F-113 WAC, may be appointed to District faculty and staff positions when it has been determined that they are the most qualified candidates for the position. However, according to State law, an employee may not be involved in the hiring, appointment, termination of appointment, promotion, demotion, supervision, approval of salary increase or decrease of a member of their family or of a person with whom there is substantial economic interest.
