Fraudulent or Other Dishonest Acts
MnSCU Board Policy 1C.2 essentially provides that fraudulent or other dishonest acts are not tolerated. State ethics laws and computer use policies proscribe the means for which employees can use state and University resources – for the benefit of the state, not the individual.
Types of conduct that fall under this policy include, but are not limited to:
- Misusing state property (for personal use, not state use)
- Falsifying time sheets
- Theft or destruction of state property
- Unauthorized use of university systems or information
- Willful violations of laws, regulations or policies
Protection from retaliation
