Employee Conduct & Work Rules

  • Theft or inappropriate removal or possession of property

  • Possession, distribution, sale, transfer, or use of alcohol or illegal drugs in the workplace, while on duty, or while operating employer-owned vehicles or equipment

  • Negligence or improper conduct leading to damage of employer-owned or customer-owned property
  • Insubordination or other disrespectful conduct
  • Violation of safety or health rules
  • Sexual or other unlawful or unwelcome harassment
  • Excessive absenteeism or any absence without notice
  • Violation of personnel policies
