Off-Duty Conduct

Date Updated: April 29th, 2012

While Scripps College does not seek to interfere with the off-duty and personal conduct of its employees, certain types of off-duty conduct may interfere with or detract from the College’s legitimate business interests. For this reason, employees are expected to conduct their personal affairs in a manner that does not adversely affect the College’s or their own integrity, reputation, or credibility. Illegal or immoral off-duty conduct by an employee that adversely affects the College’s legitimate business interests or the employee’s ability to perform his or her job will not be tolerated.


If an employee’s off-duty conduct negatively affects the College or their ability to meet job expectations, the College will handle such situations and determine consequences on a case by case basis.
