Outside Activity or Employment for UA Employees

January 20, 2023

University of Alaska is fortunate to employ highly skilled staff and faculty members.  At times UA employees are recruited by other employers for consulting or other work assignments while still employed at the university. It’s important that employees be familiar with the guidance that covers the reporting requirements and restrictions on outside employment. All UA employees, full or part-time, are subject to the outside employment restrictions set forward under the Executive Branch Ethics Act (EBEA), which serves as UA’s Standards of Ethical Conduct and its implementing regulations published by the Department of Law.  

Learn more about the Executive Branch Ethics Act requirements on outside employment for UA employees by watching this short “Compliance Chat” video.  These videos are informal conversations where Mary Gower, Senior Institutional Compliance Liaison, meets with subject matter experts covering frequently asked compliance questions and issues in quick video clips.
