David H. Anderson
President, Probation and Detention Association
Dear Mr. Anderson:
It is the County’s policy and goal that all workers shall be treated with respect and dignity. To that end, managers, supervisors, and line workers will each have an obligation of mutual respect.
This shall not prevent a manager or supervisor from providing training or correction to workers and shall not prevent a line worker from responding on their own behalf or offering their personal opinion on the subject under discussion. However, each is expected to do so in a civil manner and without name-calling or demeaning tone. Correction of work performance, when given by a supervisor, shall normally be done in private.
