Employee Solicitation Policy

Policy

History: Implemented – May 2008

Related Policies: Employee Standards of Conduct Policy; Personal Business Policy

Responsible Official: Director, Human Resources

Indiana Wesleyan University employees are expressly prohibited from directly soliciting students or other employees for personal businesses or for any business activity or organization not sponsored or sanctioned by the University (if in doubt, contact Human Resources).  Solicitation includes verbal and written communication, the distribution of e-mails, campus postal mail, circulars, handbills or other literature of any kind.  Employees who teach students or supervise others need to be especially mindful of avoiding all measure of soliciting students or staff as that perception could be easily misconstrued. 

The IWU billboard email system is the best general means of selling and announcing non-work related items as it eliminates direct solicitation to any one party.  Other than during break periods, meal times or other specified periods during the workday when employees are not engaged in performing their work tasks, employees should not be using the Billboard system.  Posting or distribution of non-work related print materials should be limited to break room or common work areas.  In addition, solicitation by non-employees or commercial businesses (for profit) is not permitted.  Exception approval may be granted for individuals or businesses that provide a service supportive of the educational mission of the University, classified postings (for sale notices, personal announcements, roommates wanted, etc.), and advertisements for non-profit fundraisers.  Vice Presidential or Provost approval is required for all exceptions.

Scope

This policy applies to all employees of the University.
