ENFORCEMENT OF MORALITY STANDARDS

In the event of a violation or breach of these standards, Lone Prairie Camp will attempt to bring about the restoration of the individual in order to maintain a working relationship with the organization dependent upon the nature and extent of the violation or breach. The "discipline" process allows for a three-stage process, the second and third stages being at the total discretion of Lone Prairie Camp.

The first stage of discipline shall be a review of the problem by the supervisor and/or the General Manager together with the employee.

The second stage of discipline is the "restorative" process which is dependent not only on the repentance by the individual employed in reference to the conduct complained of but also on the nature and severity of the breach or violation. In the second stage of discipline, Lone Prairie Camp may recommend that the employee undergo professional counselling and assessments and may apply a probationary period of employment to allow for the correction of the conduct or behaviour of the employee. When restoration is deemed complete and is determined to be successful, as determined in the sole discretion of Lone Prairie Camp, then Lone Prairie Camp will provide ongoing support and accountability for the individual employee.

The third stage of discipline is the termination of the working relationship between the employee and Lone Prairie Camp. As the violation of this policy by an employee is recognized by Lone Prairie Camp and the employee as a fundamental breach of the relationship, the employee accepts that Lone Prairie Camp may in its sole discretion terminate the relationship without notice or compensation.

At functions where an individual is attending as a representative of Lone Prairie Camp, abstinence from the use of tobacco and alcohol is required out of respect for the diversity of opinion within the evangelical community on the use of these products, and to give extra care to avoid causing an offense (eg. Romans 14) or setting an inappropriate example. The use of tobacco is also discouraged out of consideration for the health and wellbeing of the individual and his or her work associates and family.
