7.01 Employee Conduct and Work Rules

To ensure orderly operations and provide the best possible work environment, Pratts expects employees to follow rules of conduct that will protect the interests and safety of all employees and the organization.

It is not possible to list all the forms of behavior that are considered unacceptable in the workplace. The following are examples of infractions of rules of conduct that may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment:

* Theft or inappropriate removal or possession of property
* Working under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs
* Fighting or threatening violence in the workplace
* Boisterous or disruptive activity in the workplace
* Negligence or improper conduct leading to damage of employer-owned or customer-owned property
* Insubordination or other disrespectful conduct
* Sexual or other unlawful or unwelcome harassment
* Possession of dangerous or unauthorized materials, such as explosives or firearms, in the workplace
* Excessive absenteeism or any absence without notice
* Unauthorized use of telephones, mail system, or other employer-owned equipment
* Violation of personnel policies
* Unsatisfactory performance or conduct

Employment with Pratts is at the mutual consent of Pratts and the employee, and either party may terminate that relationship at any time, with or without cause, and with or without advance notice.
