Code of Conduct

Students shall refrain from all Public Displays of Affection (PDA) while on Campus or while attending and/or participating in University-related activities.

PDA includes any physical contact that may make others in close proximity with uncomfortable or serves as a distraction for themselves as well as innocent onlookers.

Founded by the Jindal Education and Welfare Society, OP Jindal University (OPJU) was set up to bring high quality education to its students based on a world class curriculum, the latest teaching methodology and committed faculty members. The employees of the University should follow the code of conduct laid down in University service rules. In addition, they are also subject to the guideline provided by UGC and State Government. The University has put forward its code of ethics for all its employees along the following lines.

1. DUTIES OF EMPLOYEE:The Employee shall be responsible for but not limited to-

  • Not, except in the course of his/her duties, remove the premises of the Employer any papers or documents of the Employee or any of its clients and will not retain any such papers or documents after the termination of his/her employment so as to make any use of any such information obtained during his/her employment except for the purpose of carrying out his/her duties;

  • Not to indulge or communicate which he may come across during the course of his/her employment or otherwise any person or persons, any of the Employer’s trade secrets or any other information which he may receive or obtains in relation to the Employer’s or its groups affairs or its clients or to the working of any process or method of operation which is carried on or used by the Employer except to those which are required to be disclosed in connection with the business of the company and the Employee is specifically authorized to do that effect;

  • Be true and faithful to the Employer in all dealings and transaction whatsoever related to its interests;

  • Submit to the Employer, or to any person nominated by it, such information and reports as may be required of him in connection with the performance of his/her duties and the interest of the Employer.

2. CODE OF CONDUCT:In order to uphold the university values, all colleagues shall follow the guidelines noted below-

  • Punctuality – Colleagues should arrive on time and are free to leave on time except when there are timelines for urgent Institute business when some colleagues may work for longer hours or have been given specific assignments.

  • Attendance and Absence – Colleagues should mark their arrival and departure time on a daily basis through the available mode of marking the attendance. If any colleague wishes to leave early, prior approval should be obtained from the Reporting Officer.

  • Leave – Applications for leave of absence should be sent to the HR Team in advance unless there is any emergency and leave is required at short notice. If you wish to take leave of absence for a longer period, you should apply for leave at least one week in advance so that arrangements can be made to cover the areas of your work during your absence.

  • Office environment – Although we are working in limited office space, you should keep your desk and the area surrounding your desk neat, tidy and clean. Confidential papers, e.g. students’ files, personnel files and papers must be kept in a manner not visible to others. When you leave the Office at the end of the day, you should leave your desk in a tidy manner putting confidential papers inside the draw. This practice should be adopted in all areas of work including the conference room.

  • Confidentiality – You should maintain a high degree of confidentiality in respect of the work you do in the Institute. That is, you shall not discuss or disclose any Institute work-related matter to any person who is not a OPJU employee. Even within OPJU, you must not disclose or discuss any work-related matter to a colleague in another area of work except on a need basis.

  • Confidentiality Mandate - All salary related information is confidential and should not be disclosed for any reason, other than as required for appropriate financial reporting purposes. It is expected that all employees keep their salaries, benefits, bonuses and any other form of compensation confidential, and avoid providing or otherwise broadcasting this information with other OP Jindal University employees, or with any third-party that does not have a bona fide need to know. Any unauthorized disclosure of confidential information by employees may create unnecessary conflict and disputes, and could lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.

  • Use of computers, laptops and telephone in the Office – These items of equipment are provided solely to facilitate office work. You may check your personal email from time to time but the computers and laptops for internet browsing not related to office work is strictly prohibited. Use of Office telephones should be restricted to OPJU work-related calls.

3. Opportunities and your position - Colleagues shall not misuse their position, title, authority or opportunity that is gained through the University’s business to induce a benefit for themselves or others.

4. Work attitude – Colleagues should work diligently with a clear focus on the output required, in an organized manner with proper time management. They should be clear about priorities in the different types of work they may be doing. They should not engage in misinformation, disinformation or personal victimization of any colleague.

5. Work performance – All colleagues should put in their best effort, be self-reflective and make conscious effort for self-improvement. Learning should never stop – learning from colleagues, learning by observing others, etc. Presence of mind and creativity are important to help individuals to improve their work performance and career prospects. The goal should be excellence in performance of work.

6. Social responsibility – Colleagues should be responsible for their own behaviour towards themselves, their colleagues and the environment. They should prevent the wasteful use of natural resources and minimize any hazardous impact of the development, use and disposal of the various things on the environment. For example, wastage of paper or colour printing should be avoided wherever possible.
