Consulting/Professional Leave may not be carried over from one academic year to another. Guidelines for Consulting Leave: 1. OLC faculty and administrators may be compensated above base salary for consulting work under the following conditions: a. consultation is across departmental lines; b. work performed is in addition to his/her regular departmental workload; c. the vice-president from who division the consultant is drawn indicates permission based on (a) and (b) above and that consulting will not interfere in scheduled duties. 2. OLC faculty and administrators may be assigned to consulting activities as part of their duties in which case no additional compensation will be provided but the consultant's workload will be reduced to permit the consulting duties. 3. Consulting for Oglala Sioux agencies or organizations is encouraged and administrative leave may be granted to OLC members in which case any compensation provided to the employee must be given to the college as dual compensation is not permitted. 4. Administrators or faculty members may consult for agencies or organizations not affiliated with the Oglala Sioux Reservation with approved administrative leave being granted. It is understood that per diem and other expenses associated with the consulting duties are not the responsibility of the college. 5. Any OLC employee agreeing to perform consulting work or being assigned to consulting duties by the college must file a report on the duties performed, compensation and nature of time involved with the appropriate vice-president. 6. Any OLC employee wishing to perform consulting duties must receive permission from his/her immediate supervisor and divisional head. Requests should include detailed descriptions of the work to be performed and a description of how the consulting can be done while normal duties are being performed. Guidelines for Professional Leave: 1. Professional leave is specifically for faculty members to attend professional conferences, present research in a professional setting (i.e. conference, public hearing, or community presentation), or to conduct research within their professional fields in accordance with departmental and OLC missions. 2. Faculty members must submit a formal written request for professional leave to their department chair for approval at least two weeks prior to taking professional leave. Approval from department chair is required in order to take professional leave. 3.
