Policies & Procedures - General Rules & Regulations

THE LANGUAGE USED IN THIS DOCUMENT DOES NOT CREATE AN EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT BETWEEN THE EMPLOYEE AND THE AGENCY. THIS DOCUMENT DOES NOT CREATE ANY CONTRACTUAL RIGHTS OR ENTITLEMENTS. THE AGENCY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REVISE THE CONTENT OF THIS DOCUMENT, IN WHOLE OR IN PART. NO PROMISES OR ASSURANCES, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, WHICH ARE CONTRARY TO OR INCONSISTENT WITH THE TERMS OF THIS PARAGRAPH CREATE ANY CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT.

We believe that The Citadel employees are and will continue to be good citizens, both in the community and on their jobs, and that they ordinarily will not engage in acts contrary to the best interests of themselves, other employees, students or the college. However, in instances in which employees do engage in conduct contrary to these interests, they will receive discipline appropriate for such misconduct. The degree of discipline in each case, up to and including discharge, will be determined by the severity of the situation involved.

Discipline can take may forms. It may be something as simple as a counseling session between the employee and the supervisor. Disciplinary action may include an oral warning, written warning, written probation, suspension without pay, or possibly termination from employment. The Citadel has no obligation to use any one or more of these forms of discipline. Any or all of these forms of discipline may be omitted if the misconduct is deemed serious enough by The Citadel.

The following set of rules and regulations is intended to serve as a general guideline in governing appropriate employee behavior. The list is not intended to include all offenses for which an employee may be discipline or discharged.
