Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to set forth Meharry’s non solicitation, distribution and bulletin board policy.

Policy Statement

Solicitation of donations or selling to other employees during "working time" is prohibited without the written approval of the Human Resources department. Solicitations for the direct or indirect benefit of Meharry, such as the annual Faculty and Staff giving campaign and the United Way Campaign are exceptions to this policy.

"Working time" includes the working time of both the employee doing the solicitation or distribution and the employee to whom it is directed, but does not include authorized breaks, lunch, or other duty-free periods of time.

Persons not employed by Meharry may not solicit Meharry employees for any purposes on Company premises.

Solicitations are not permitted at any time in patient care areas.

Bulletin boards maintained by Meharry are to be used only for posting or distributing material pertaining directly to Meharry business or applicable to interests of employees, students, faculty and residents.

All employee posted material must have authorization from Human Resources.
