Outside employment reporting for University Staff

UW–Madison University Staff employees are not prohibited from accepting additional jobs outside the university if the job does not interfere with their UW duties. UW System policy prohibits University Staff employees from accepting outside employment that causes a conflict of interest with their university employment. If a University Staff member is considering or is currently working at an additional job outside the UW, they need to determine if the outside job duties may be in conflict with their UW job duties. In these situations, employees should provide details about the outside employment to their supervisor. The supervisor will let the employee know if they are able to proceed or continue with the outside employment. University Staff members who are not sure whether they need to take action or have questions about the policy should speak with their supervisor.
