D. Employee Relations
13. Non-work Related Solicitations.
13.1 The University System of New Hampshire also strives to provide a work environment free of non-work related interruptions. Faculty and staff are expected to engage in the work of the University System or USNH-sponsored activities during work time and in the work place, free from interruption, disruption, or distraction from sources unrelated to their work.
13.1.1 As such, solicitation of or by faculty and staff on behalf of non-USNH entities during work hours and in the workplace is restricted to non-working hours and non-work space, such as a designated web site. Institutional level policy may permit the use of lunchrooms and/or other appropriate common areas for solicitation by, or on behalf of, appropriate non-USNH organizations so long as that activity does not interfere with the ability of faculty, staff, and supervisors to maintain a work environment appropriate to the conduct of USNH's work.
