Big Sandy Area Development District      Policy Manual

Computer and Email Usage

Big Sandy ADD may give employees access to computers, computer files, the e-mail system, and software to use in doing their work. We strive to maintain a workplace that is free of harassment and sensitive to the diversity of our employees. Therefore, we prohibit the use of computers and the e-mail system in ways that are illegal, disruptive, offensive to others, or harmful to morale.

We prohibit displaying, downloading, or e-mailing sexually explicit images, messages, and cartoons. Other examples of unacceptable computer usage include (but are not limited to) ethnic slurs, racial comments, off-color jokes, or anything that may be seen by another person as harassment or disrespectful.

You may not use e-mail to solicit others for commercial ventures, religious or political causes, outside organizations, or other nonbusiness matters.

You should notify your team leader, the Executive Director or any member of management, if you learn about a violation of this policy. Employees who violate this policy are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment.
