9050 Employment of Support Staff

Policy Type: 
Support Staff

The Board of Trustees recognizes that it is vital to the successful operation of the College that positions created by the Board be filled with qualified and competent support staff.

The Board shall approve the employment, and also, when not covered by the terms of a negotiated, collective bargaining agreement, fix the compensation, and establish the term of employment for each support staff member employed by this College.

Individuals employed in the following employee groups shall be considered members of the support staff:

  1. Members of Dearborn Federation of School Employees

  2. Members of Dearborn Schools Operating Engineers Association

Such approval shall be given only to those candidates for employment recommended by the President.

All applications for employment shall be referred to the Office of Human Resources.

Relatives of Trustees may be employed by the Board, provided a member of the Board does not participate in any way in the discussion or vote on the employment when conflict of interest is involved.

Any support staff member's intentional misstatement of fact material to qualifications for employment or the determination of salary shall be considered by this Board to constitute grounds for dismissal.

Relatives of staff members may be employed by the Board, provided the staff member being employed is not placed in a position in which s/he would be directly supervised by the relative staff member.

The employment of support staff members prior to approval by the Board is authorized when their employment is required to maintain continuity in College operations. Employment shall be recommended to the Board at the next regular meeting.

When appropriate, no candidate for employment as a support staff member shall receive recommendation for such employment without having proffered visual evidence of proper certification, when appropriate, or that application for such certification is in process.

No support staff member of the school shall be permitted to perform in more than one (1) classification unless otherwise authorized by the President or designee.

The President or designee shall prepare procedures for the recruitment and selection of all support staff.
