Misconduct includes any failure to comply with statute, policy, practice, directive, standard, or procedure directly governing performance and conduct. The specific policies governing an employee’s work and conduct may vary depending on the individual job responsibilities and work location. Supervisory personnel are responsible for ensuring that employees are informed of and have available for review all applicable policy. Each employee is responsible for making reasonable efforts to stay informed of policy and any changes governing his or her duties and conduct.
When misconduct occurs, the CD should address with staff involved immediately and proceed with corrective discipline if necessary.
For further information regarding Corrective Discipline, refer to the SOP.
