Respect : The Key to A Civil Workplace

Cobb County Government has developed a policy that reflects our commitment to providing employees with a work environment free from harassment, where individuals treat one another with mutual respect and in a cooperative manner. The policy defines harassment; sets out procedures to deal with complaints; and requires immediate discipline for violations.

Download the Respect Brochure to view general information about the policy and how it can apply to you if you feel you are being harassed or if someone is accusing you of harassment. You can get more information or a copy of the complete policy from your department representative.
