When using Lake Michigan College (the “College”) property, employees are expected to exercise care and follow all operating instructions and safety standards to prevent deterioration and injury to the employee or others. In addition, employees should act as stewards by exercising custodial responsibility for College property and resources.

“Property,” as used in this policy, means any piece of equipment, furnishing, tool, vehicle, building, land, infrastructure, or supply leased, rented, or owned by the College.

Supervisors can answer questions about the employee’s responsibility, if any, to care and maintain property used on the job.

Employees should promptly notify their supervisor if any property appears to be missing, lost, damaged, defective, or in need of repair. 

College property may be removed from a campus only if such property is necessary to carry on the official business of the College. College property must be returned once the business use of the property is completed. 

College property is intended for business use only. Limited personal use as necessary is allowable but should be the exception and not the rule. The College reserves the right to discipline employees for excessive personal use of company property. 

Improper, careless, destructive, or unsafe use or operation of property can result in discipline, up to and including discharge. If an employee’s misuse of College property damages the property, the College reserves the right to require the employee to pay all or part of the cost to repair or replace the property. Misappropriation of property is grounds for immediate termination and possible criminal action.
