J.E.M. is a community in which responsibilities and
freedoms are governed by policies and codes of behavior, including penalties for
violations of these standards as stated in your Employee Manual. J.E.M. has a
standard of conduct which prohibits the unlawful possession, use, or

for prosecution for violations of the standards of conduct. Each situation will
be looked at on a case by case basis.

1988, J.E.M. has adopted the following policies.

prohibition and to notify, in writing and within five (5) days of the violation,

If any employee receives such a conviction J.E.M. shall take appropriate
