Expected Behavior - Civility and Mutual Respect

As members of the JSU community, staff, are expected to interact with each other with civility and respect, recognizing that disagreements and informed debate are valued in an academic community. When employee conduct varies from this expectation, it is the responsibility of the supervisor, director, department head, dean, or vice president of that specific Division of the person engaging in the inappropriate conduct to address it. Inappropriate conduct covers a broad range of behaviors from rude, obnoxious, bullying behavior to threats of violence. The level of danger in the behavior determines the action that the supervisor should take. For guidance on identifying potential threatening or violent behavior and for the best ways to deal with these incidents, contact an HR Representative at hrconfidential@jsu.edu.
