The city has established a Uniform Disciplinary Code (“code”) to provide consistent rules governing performance and work behavior expected from employees at all levels, including administrators, managers, and supervisors. It does not apply to probationary or other temporary employees serving at the pleasure of the mayor or council (i.e. supervisors with employees not covered by the code may consult the guidelines to discipline such employees, but they are not required to do so).
The following code numbers and their corresponding offenses shall be used when completing the disciplinary action form. The definitions and comments for each offense clarify the types of behaviors the city considers insubordinate, inefficient, violations of moral turpitude, and general misconduct.
Questions that are not answered in the guidelines or by supervisors should be directed to human resources, employee relations section at (859) 258-3030.
