Use good judgment and avoid the appearance of improper behaviour.
Consider Your Actions, and Ask for Guidance.
If ever in doubt about a course of conduct, ask yourself:
• Is it consistent with the Code of Conduct and the Code of Ethics?
• Is it ethical?
• Is it legal?
• Will it reflect well on me and the College?
• Would I want to read about it in the newspaper?
If the answer is “No” to any of these questions, don’t do it.
If you are still uncertain, ask for guidance at the Ethics Helpdesk.
The Code tries to capture many of the situations that employees will encounter, but cannot address every circumstance.
