Employee Conduct

to serving its students, customers and community, as well as the way its employees interact with one another. While it is the college's general practice to attempt to solve performance problems in the most informal way possible, the following is a list of some of the activities that may lead to immediate discharge:
  • Criminal activities engaged in by any employee
  • Theft or removal of any college product or property without expressed permission
  • Refusal to perform assigned duties
  • Discovery of false information on an employee's application of employment or any pre-employment tests or documentation
  • Use, or possession, of illegal substances on the job and/or reporting to work under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs
  • Falsification of records, including but not limited to time cards, student records, deposit slips, invoices, expense accounts, shipping/receiving records, business records or any other similar report or documentation
  • Unauthorized solicitations or other activities that interfere with productivity
  • Sexual harassment, or other forms of harassment or prohibited discrimination of other employees, students, vendors, customers, contract workers or other third parties
  • Striking or other physical abuse or threat of physical abuse of a co-worker, student, customer or supplier during the performance of assigned duties
  • Forgery of a signature on any document used in any way in connection with college business

This is by no means an exhaustive list of behavior that may lead to immediate termination, but a general listing that may be expanded or changed at any time with or without notice.
