1. Code of Conduct Policy
This Code of Conduct Community Policy template is ready to be tailored to your community’s needs and should be considered a starting point for setting up your employment policies. An employee code of conduct policy may also be referred to as a conduct in the workplace policy.
2. Policy brief & purpose
Our Code of Conduct community policy outlines our expectations regarding members’ behavior towards their colleagues, supervisors and overall organization. We promote freedom of expression and open communication. But we expect all members to follow our code of conduct. They should avoid offending, participating in serious disputes and disrupting our workplace. We also expect them to foster a well-organized, respectful and collaborative environment.
This policy applies to all our members regardless of community agreement or rank. We expect all community participants to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues–online and in-person–as well as in all one-on-one communications about community business. This code of conduct and its related procedures also applies to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of community activities when such behavior has the potential to affect the safety and well-being of community members adversely.
