Professional Code of Conduct
Good Faith Conduct and Accountability:
All teammates are expected to be truthful in their work, words, and actions. Teammates shall act in good faith and in alignment with company’s endeavors. This includes being familiar with and following Code One’s employee handbook, policies, procedures, and expectations. Teammates shall take responsibility for upholding the company’s standards and reputation for integrity.
Respect for the Rights and Dignity of Others:
Code One is an institution dedicated to the pursuit of excellence and facilitation of an environment that fosters this goal. Central to that institutional commitment is the principle of treating others civilly and professionally. We value the safety, privacy, property, personal rights, and dignity of others.
We recognize that we must earn and maintain a reputation for integrity that includes compliance with laws and regulations. Even the appearance of misconduct or impropriety can be damaging to our brand. We must strive at all times to maintain the highest standards of quality and integrity.
Each teammate is expected to conduct their work with the utmost honesty, accuracy and fairness. Each situation needs to be examined in accordance with this standard. No unethical practice can be tolerated. Expediency should never compromise integrity.
Organization and Preparedness:
Code One teammates are offered the opportunity to educate, inspire, and empower our students. Customer Experience is a key component in developing and maintaining a reputation for quality. Our expectations for Customer Experience include:
In an effort to standardize the level of professional dependency, Code One has established the following expectations:
Code One strongly discourages romantic or sexual relationships between teammates and students. No teammate shall pursue, have or maintain a romantic or sexual relationship with a student whom the employee is responsible for teaching, grading, advising or otherwise supervising.
In the event such a relationship exists, the involved employee shall report such relationship immediately to a member of the Administrative Team, who shall take appropriate steps consistent with this policy, including the removal of any reporting, grading, teaching, advising or similar relationships between the employee and the student.
For purposes of professional discipline, the term “sexual misconduct” is interpreted very broadly. In addition to criminal offenses where the victim may or may not be a student, sexual misconduct includes any act or conduct directed towards a student of a romantic or sexual nature regardless of the age of the student. This includes any sexual, romantic or erotic contact with a student as well as any verbal, non-verbal, written or electronic communication or physical activity designed to establish a romantic or sexual relationship, including but not limited to:
The employment repercussions for engaging in sexual misconduct or inappropriate relationships with students are grave. Teammates who ignore their responsibilities can be assured that their conduct will trigger discipline which in all likelihood will include the loss of employment.
