Approved/revised: April 19, 2013
NVIT recognizes that from time to time there may be a need, or it may be in the institutional interest, to employ or contract an individual who is serving as an Order-In-Council appointed member of the NVIT Board. While such an event is infrequent, it is important that conflict of interest and other issues, real or perceived, of potential concern be addressed. Therefore the following policy guidelines will apply to the employment, by NVIT, of appointed Board members.
Employment for Less than Four Months (or equivalent in a fiscal year)
In the case of employment for less than four months the following shall apply:
1. Where the President deems a Board member to be the best suited individual for the employment in question, NVIT may employ a Board member.
Employment Greater Than Four Months (or equivalent in a fiscal year)
In the case of a continuing position, or a part time or contract position with duration longer than four months, the following shall apply:
1. The Board member must inform the Board Chair of his/her intention to apply or that he/she is interested in the position at the earliest possible opportunity. Where the Board member is the Chair, he/she must inform the Vice Chair.
