As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to slowly bring back services and reopen some public spaces. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.
The Code of Conduct supports the town’s core values of accountability, dedication, honesty, innovation, respect and teamwork. Town employees are accountable to the town, Council and citizens of Oakville and are responsible for the assets entrusted to them. Town employees must demonstrate the highest standards of ethical, business and personal behaviour. Therefore every town employee is expected to comply with the Code of Conduct and other policies and procedures that govern employee behaviour.
This Code of Conduct outlines the town’s expectations regarding employee conduct and behaviour.
The Code of Conduct does not answer every question that may arise. It is designed to promote ethical decision making and behaviour and to make employees think about how ethics and integrity must guide them in doing their jobs.
This policy applies to all town employees including but is not limited to full-time, part-time, contract, students, seasonal, volunteers and interns.
