we basically use the share with all rule - so food comes at Christmas time and it goes into the break room for all the departments, not just planning and code -
when I worked in Massachusetts, it was 30 bucks but I did have a director that let me keep a 50 dollar gift certificate to a restaurant - there was a Chinese restaurant that always tried ot give us our lunch free, something that must happen a lot in China and they were always mad that we left cash anyway, we had to stop going there
here, the rules are more vague, which I guess is okay:
23.4 Grounds for Discipline - The reason listed below are illustrations of behaviors, which may be grounds for discipline:
A. Drinking or using illegal drugs on the job or arriving to work while under the influence of intoxicating beverages or drugs, or bringing same on job.
B. Failure to follow reasonable orders of superiors.
C. Being habitually late or tardy.
D. Failure to perform the duties of the position properly within the employee’s capability.
E. Negligent or willful damage to Town property or private property while on the job.
F. Conviction of theft or any other serious crime.
G. Dishonesty, including the falsification of official reports or records.
H. Use of abusive language toward a fellow employee or to the public or failure to treat the public with respect.
I. Negligently endangering the safety of other employees.
J. General conduct unbecoming a civil servant where such conduct might compromise the reputation, character and trustworthiness of the Town employee and / or government.
K. Violation of the work rules (that are not in conflict with these rules).
L. Acceptance of money or a gift by an employee when given under circumstances indicating the hope or expectation of receiving better treatment than that accorded to the public in general.
so basically we can't have any fun without getting disciplined -
