As an employee of NYIT, you are expected to perform your job duties as directed by your supervisor and to maintain professional behavior in keeping with the standards outlined in this handbook.

Discharge and discipline decisions are made at the sole discretion of NYIT. Certain types of misconduct may give rise to immediate discharge. Examples include, but are not limited to, use of controlled substances, intoxication, dishonesty, insubordination, misconduct, and/or violation of NYIT policy. In certain cases of unsatisfactory performance, NYIT may determine, at its sole discretion, to use a progressive discipline system designed to address performance problems and correct unacceptable behavior in a positive and constructive manner. However, as an "at will" employer, NYIT is free to terminate an employee at any time, for any or no reason, without any warning or notice.

Managers should seek guidance from the Human Resources department regarding employee performance problems and assistance in drafting performance and disciplinary communications to employees.
