How do I address a colleague (i.e. coworker, direct report) who chooses not to follow TCU's COVID-19 protocol in the workplace? 

Last Updated May 25, 2021

All members of the TCU Community must behave and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens in the global community. This ethical behavior is the core of TCU’s mission statement.

If employees in your area of responsibility choose to engage in non-compliant behavior regarding COVID-19 protocols (guidance from TCU, Tarrant County, the State of Texas and the CDC) you may ask this employee to leave the TCU campus. These uncomfortable and difficult conversations are necessary to keep our campus community safe and consider the well-being of all community members. Should this situation occur, contact Human Resources as soon as practical. In the meantime, document your recollection of the interaction to include the conversation, and non-verbal observations.
