Rule 1.6 Personal Conduct (Level 4)
Employees shall conduct themselves in a manner that will not bring discredit to HRT. Employees' conduct with customers, co-workers and others will be respectful and civil at all times while on duty. Employees are also to be in compliance with HRT's Human Resources polices which includes, but is not limited to Absenteeism, Drug and Alcohol, Insubordination, Sexual Harassment and the HRT Code of Ethics.
This rule is a very important catch-all.
The first sentence covers everything from entering a bar or strip club while in-uniform (even to use their restroom) to posting critical comments on Facebook. This goes beyond libel or slander. "Discredit" is a Company Policy that can be invoked whenever the company feels that their business or reputation have been harmed, even if the comment is true.
The second sentence covers our interaction with customers, co-workers, and supervisors. When we receive a Customer Complaint the supervisor tries to determine if we were respectful and civil. Who was more professional?
And the third sentence just says that you can be fired for violating any HRT policy, which can be found on the LAN.
