Code of Conduct
The Code of Conduct Policy applies to all employees of Arts University Bournemouth and is intended to provide guidance on expectations and standards in relation to working within the University.
The University is justifiably proud of the quality and commitment of its employees and expects the highest standards of conduct from them. All employees are expected to promote and protect the interests of the University in day to day business. This policy aims to reflect the values of the University and outlines key principles about the way employees should carry out their responsibilities.
The Dignity at Work Policy is part of the University’s on-going commitment to aim to provide and to promote a working environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity, where no-one feels threatened or intimidated and where everyone can do their work free from harassment and/or bullying. It also aims to provide an appropriate environment in which the University is able to resolve complaints about matters covered by the Policy as quickly as possible in the circumstances, and where fairness, consistency and non-discrimination drive the policy.
It is the responsibility of all employees to comply with the Dignity at Work Policy and ensure that behaviour towards fellow employees and workers cannot be considered to be harassment or bullying.

The Disciplinary Procedure provides a framework within which managers can work with employees to maintain satisfactory standards of conduct, and attendance and to encourage improvement where necessary
The intention is that any disciplinary matter is dealt with fairly and that steps are taken to establish the facts and to give employees the opportunity to respond before taking any formal action.
AUB’s Grievance Procedure applies to all employees and aims to provide an appropriate environment in which the University is able to resolve grievances as quickly as is possible in the circumstances and where fairness, consistency and non-discrimination drive the procedure. The University hopes it will enable employees to raise any issues or concerns they may have about their work, the University, or fellow employees’ or workers’ actions that affect them.
The Grievance Procedure allows for grievances to be resolved informally although there is also a formal process to the procedure by which grievances may be resolved formally. Although there is a formal process, the University aims to resolve a grievance as early in the procedure as is possible which complies with the ACAS Code of Practice recommendations.
If you would like a confidential discussion regarding a potential grievance issue or the grievance procedure please contact your HR Partner.
