Code of Ethics Training
The Office of Ethics and Compliance ensures that every employee has undergone mandatory training for ethics. These classes are tailored to their job roles and work groups. For example, classes held for administrators will not be the same ones that are conducted for police. This customization is done in order for our employees to face relevant, realistic scenarios so that they will better equipped to deal with ethical dilemmas they may face in in their work environment.
Code of Ethics trainings are held every other year and during New Employee Orientation.
Civility and Respect in the Workplace Training
Civility and Respect in the Workplace is a training class conducted by the City's Ethics Officer that outlines a respectful workplace. The training defines civility and respect, what it looks like, how to display civility and respect, and actions you can take when another person displays incivility and disrespect towards you.
This training can be requested for specific employee groups though the Ethics Office.
Communications are sent out to City employees regularly on various topics. Ethics @ Work is one of the methods of communications that is distributed from the Office of Ethics & Compliance. Ethics @ Work highlights various topics relating to the Code of Ethics. This allows for open communication between the Office of Ethics & Compliance and employees on relevant issues.
